Let it Snow....Let it Snow...Let it Snow!!!

We have been in perpetual snow showers here in Northern New Hampshire....it sure is BEAUTIFUL. Having grown up in NH....there is nothing like a WHITE CHRISTMAS!!

The beauty...the silence.....GORGEOUS!! I just had to go out to my back yard and snap a few photos.









I was inspired by the snow to create a layout using Bo Bunny's Midnight Frost.....love love love oh did I say love that line!! I also got a new Spellbinders die.....Snowflake Pendant die...OMW and of course Tim Holtz Snow Flurries~On the Edge die....

LET THE CREATING BEGIN..........




I cut a few snowflakes out of a mystery paper I had, to create masks. I then spritzed on some of my Faded Jeans Reinker mixture (Faded Jeans Reinker Ink, Mini Mister, Perfect Pearls and Water), then I outlined the snowflakes with White Opal Liquid Pearls. (this will take a bit to dry)


I then cut additional snowflakes from Mulberry Paper and Crenoline. I then spritzed the Mulbery paper with my Faded Jeans and Weathered Wood Reinker mixtures.



I cut paper from the Snow Flurries "On the Edge" die and painted on some Rock Candy Distress Crackle.....LOVIN' how it made the paper curl!!! I adhered them to the paper with machine stitching....


















hehehehe....some REAL snow snuck onto my layout when I was photographing.....hehehehe!!

I just love the poem I found written by Trade Martin....which I included on my layout!!

It’s the first storm of the season…..,
And it really sets the mood……,
Cause the spirit of the holiday….,
Comes from gifts, snow and food….,
And it looks like a good one…..,
That I hope you just won’t miss…..,
Snow Light, Snow Bright On Christmas….,
Yes, Snow Light, Snow Bright On Christmas….! ! !

Here's.................Wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas!!!

I've been wearing my corsage all week on my coat (and will continue to do so) - I've received MANY compliments as I've bragged on it being created by you! Thank you again for making it for me!

I hope you & yours have a VERY Merry Christmas!
