Snow Day.......NOT!

Last year about this time, we had about 2o inches of snow dumped on us. The only people who like that much snow, are little people. My son was one of them. While he was supposed to help me shovel our way out of the driveway, he decided it was waaaaaay more fun to build a snow fort and crawl inside of it! The fort had to be about 8 feet high! It was good to see my teen have some good old fashioned fun in the snow! This LO was published in the December of Cricut Magazine
I coffee stained some metal rimmed tags and incorporated them with snowflakes cut from the Winter Woodland.  I wanted to incorporate a subtle vintage feel to the page.
The snowman and title were cut using the Winter Frolic cartridge.  I added red Flower Soft to his earmuffs and mittens for a cozy warm feel.  I glittered him up and added tiny buttons to his eyes.
This winter has been so mild in comparison to last year.  But I am not complaining one bit! The mild temps and lack of snow has made this winter fly by!  Soon spring will be here!
Have a wonderful day my friends!

Gorgeous layout! Last year we had one of the snowiest years on record, so I'm thinking this just balances it all out lol.

I'm enjoying the lower energy bills and being able to just go without all the preparation for myself and the card :D.

That is gorgeous. Can't believe how cold it must be, just to rub it in we have 30deg today :) But we can't make snowmen.
Have a great week.
