Let it Snow!

Since I am fairly new to Arizona, I am getting a good giggle every time I hear the weatherman right now... He is telling us to prepare for an "Arctic Blast!" Seriously?!! I understand that upper 40s-low 50s is chilly for this area but I really don't consider this an Arctic Blast!! However, since he got me thinking about cold weather, I decided to create a fun winter layout!

This one was quick and easy! Usually I spend hours on a layout but this one went together quickly! What you can't see in the photo is how sparkly and shiny I made the background with shimmer mists!

Of course, using Karan's sketch over at Sketchabilities really helped the process move along! I love her sketches!

This little bird was with some of my Spring accents but I liked him and used him on my winter layout anyway! :)

I had a lot of fun layering all of the different kinds of snowflakes.... crocheted, acrylic, felt, stickers... love the look!

LOL! I am prepared for the Artic Blast I pulled out my sweater! It is so funny how they make it sound so cold!

Received my package! So fun! Thanks so much!

Great lay-out! Love the snowflakes! Carri~Abusybee

Hi barb I really love your take on this sketch. It's great when a page just comes together like that. I did a page for this sketch too but we are away on holiday and have no wifi (except my iPhone) so I can't load it :)
