A Snowy Layout

This layout features a photo that I took last January when the sun came out after a raging snowstorm!  We had so much snow then!  It could easily be a photo from this January!  We have a lot of snow again!

For the 12 x 12" background I laid die cut snowflakes on the paper and sprayed Glimmer Mist over the top.  You can see the faint shape near the journaling tab.  All the "glimmer" gave my camera a hard time for photographing! 

The snowflakes are covered with crystal glitter.  So pretty in reality! They don't show well either.

I hid my journaling behind the photo.  The photo is fastened to the page so that there's a pocket for the journal card to slide into, leaving just the tab showing.  A little tug on the tab and a journaling card slides out.

I thought this an appropriate post considering we're getting more snow here tonight, with more predicted for the next 2-3 days.  If we get winds, I'll be snowed in or out depending on when they hit.  The cuts between the snow banks are getting very deep.   We've already spent 2 nights at my parents home because our road was drifted shut.  We've been snowed in several weekends, too.  We didn't mind that!
