SNOWFLAKES ARE KISSES FROM HEAVEN
For this week's challenge for RCS, we were asked to make a sparkly layout. I love sparkles.....Sparkly vampires, sparkly clothes, sparkly paper. So when I learned of this challenge, the first sparkly inspiration that came to my mind was snow. And sadly, we haven't seen a lot of it in our neck of the woods in the last year....And being a teacher, that's a sad thing. We love snow days, I think more than our students.....When the weather report came in for this past December 25, we were once again disappointed; no White Christmas. Then suddenly in true Ohio weather fashion, no snow went to blizzard warning the day after Christmas! And not only did we have a mini blizzard, we had thundersnow! It's the weirdest thing to experience; snow falling, lightening bolts, & big thunder booms! So anyway, I took these pics of my snow baby a couple of days after our first snow in over a year. I used glitter paper to matte my main pictures, sparkly brads from Doodlebug Design to secure my pictures on the sparkly paper (it is a bit hard to get card stock to stick to glitter paper), and sparkly snowflakes from Jolee's Boutique. Hopefully at some point this winter I can make a few more sparkly layouts. Namely any day Monday through Friday; weekends are OFF LIMITS!
