Footprints In The Snow

Well, yesterday the snow came and the sleet came and the snow came. The wind was terrible and driving was awful.  It took my daughter 5 1/2 hours to get home from work, a ride that normally is 30 minutes.  I live on back roads, and they proved too much for the car, as it got stuck.  I was able to get my neighbor who has 4 wheel drive to go and rescue her.  Then at 11:00pm the electricity went out. It just came back on about an hour ago.  Going with out heat for 18 hours is brutal!  Plus I'm on well water, so we had no water.  It got to 59 degrees in my house.  I was one happy camper when the electricity came back on! 
  Now that I got that off my chest,  on to my layout!
I've had this picture for a few years now.  My daughter took this picture of her boot print and Zoey's paw prints in the snow covered sidewalk.
  I was late this week finishing my DT entry for our sketch challenge at Frosted Designs. I guess better late then never!
Libeeti designed this wonder sketch.  
I  used several different collections from Webster's Pages and added some felt snowflakes by Bo Bunny.


Hope you'll have time to enter our sketch challenge at Frosted Designs.  You can check it out here!
Thanks for stopping by!

I'm glad you survived yet another snow storm. I bet you will be as glad I am when spring gets here. And I know your winter has been worse than mine.

I can't pinpoint what I like best about this layout. Maybe it's the touch of red in the heart, or maybe it's the photo, or maybe it's the snowflakes. Whatever it is, I love it!
