Waiting For Springtime

Hope everyone is having a fun filled weekend!  I know I am, cause I've been scrapping! I got my cleaning and laundry done, and it's far too cold and windy to be outside, so what's a girl to do, but scrap!! I have another layout to share with you using the February kit from Artful Delight.  I am so in love with the Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime collection!
The end of January we had a terrible snow storm  which literally crippled the Washington DC metro area.  I had posted about it when it happened, as a 30 minute ride home for my daughter turned into a 5+ hour trip home, only to be stranded on the back roads.  By the next day the roads had been plowed and my daughter and son drove the back roads to recover my abandoned car.  Sara took her camera and shot the beautiful pictures on my layout!
I have to say that untouched nature is so surreal.  Here are a few more pictures my daughter took:
 That's my car!
 Here you can see how narrow the road is. This is my son in his car.

The snow covered trees reminded me of the artist Bev Doolittle.  I thought how wonderful it would be to capture a picture with these gorgeous snow covered trees and some wildlife.  Unfortunately, no wildlife, just snow covered trees.  For those of you who are not familiar with Bev Doolittle here is one of her drawings:
Here are a few closeups of my layout:

The forecast for the next few weeks promises warmer weather!!!  Yeah!!!!!!!!!!
