Okay, so a funny thing happened over the past couple days. In church they asked us to pray for moisture because we haven’t had any serious snow since Christmas. Maybe just a few flurries and some rain from time to time. February was very spring like.

So yesterday it was quite a surprise to get blizzard like conditions–thaaaat lasted for maybe 15 minutes. I guess not enough people prayed so we only got 15 minutes’ worth. ;) Dan mentioned he was quite disappointed that he couldn’t get a snow shovel out. It looked so promising too.

Oh well. Instead we’ll make the snow last last via paper…a little somethin’ somethin’ from Miss Nichol using the new KBS stamps too! Woo hoo!!!

Wowza! That page has ‘fluffy white stuff’ all over it! I love all the words strips. And I love how Nichol intermixed the  stamps–especially the embossed ‘Currently’ and ‘I love…’ as well as how she used ‘Happiness’ to set her journaling. And all those snowflakes? Wow!


Here’s what Nichol has to say:

I wanted to create a page that depicted the feeling of winter for this photo of my son “helping” his grandpa shovel snow several years ago. I kept the color scheme to blue + silver + white + gray/black and purposely created a a quadrant-style layout with the larger photo in the bottom left quadrant, the grouping of four snowflake embellished tags in the lower right quadrant and  the title and journaling in the upper right quadrant. The scattering of snowflakes fills the upper left of the design. I love combining Kerri’s titles to make a custom title for my layouts. The mix of fonts adds a fun touch. I printed my journaling on the 12×12 patterned paper and adhered the title below it. Kerri’s new print & cut Lovely Little Words add a great finishing touch throughout the page.

This makes up for the fluffy white stuff we didn’t really get yesterday. :)
