It's Cold Outside

Most of the winter's I've lived in Idaho have been cold, some really cold, but it's usually without snow. Yes, there has been snow, but nothing like the dropping down of inches that stayed for days kind of snow that I remember growing up in Colorado. Now that I have children I want them to have some of the same memories I had of playing in snow. So when it does snow we take advantage of it!


I'm sharing today the first layout, I think, ever! I might have done a digital layout last year or the year before, but it's been a very long time since the last one.  My daughter is having some fun in the snow on our deck. I didn't allow for journaling, but I think it kind of speaks for itself. If I needed to I'd tuck it underneath each photo or the last one... maybe.

 To make it really snowy, I used Alene's Tacky Glue around the photos and sprinkled Stampendous Cotton Ball White Fun Flock on top. The first step was to sponge the glue on so it would be a thin layer, then I dropped beads of glue around sparingly. To get it to look like a drift I pulled the bead out with a wooden skewer (it was handy for me, but anything will do).

Once the photos were dry I glued them down and added some more drifts in the nooks and cranny's of the cascading photos. Lots of fun going on there!

I decorated with two different stamps. One is the snowflake stamp from the Jumbo Merry Magical set and the other is a wood mount sentiment called Cold Outside. I thought they worked perfectly with the layout!
