In The Meadow We Can Build A Snowman

Saturday brought our first snowfall here in Maryland.  I found myself thinking about how excited my kids would have been if they were younger.  As they are now 19 and 22, a snowfall only means shoveling!  I decided to go through some old photos and came across this one from 1992.  My daughter was 2 and my son 5.  With the help of her older brother, my daughter built her first snowman.  Oh how I long for those days, when they were so young and sweet and inocent.


I splurged and bought some new winter paper by Fancy Pants, their "Frosted" collection.  I thought the colors blended so well with the colors of the snow suits.  I used two Cricut cartridges, George to cut out the circle, which I then trimmed with rick rack.  I also used Winter Woodland to cut out the three trees, which I then outlined with my snow writer pen and then added some Martha Stewart peridot glitter.  For an added touch I added some bling to the trees to look like ornaments.




I puchased the snowman and large snowflakes at Target.  The smaller snowflakes are buttons.  I also had a chance to use the Martha Stewart Snow Flurry border punch.



 

I had a lot of fun working on this layout, but have traces of glitter every where!

After a long marriage and being a stay at home mom to my beautiful boys I too went back to school and am a full time mom to my youngest, now 14 and a full time employee at a local elementary school...it's the best of both worlds because my son and I have the same hours and vacations...I feel so blessed for that but it is a huge change....I love to use my scrapping as happy therapy time and it really helps tho I wish I had more time to do it....
