OUR TRIP TO THE SNOW

Good Monday mornin'! I have another layout to show you - and I will state right up front that I used non-SU! products on this layout - I have TONS of scrapbooking stuff and I DO like to use it when I scrapbook. The polka dot paper was PERFECT for this layout and I really liked this ribbon since it reminded me of snow. Everything else is SU! though and the recipe is below. This layout is from the trip we took right after Christmas when my oldest son was home for a visit. My boys love to snowboard and my daughter loves to play in the snow so it was a really fun trip. The nice thing about where we live is that we don't have to go far to be IN snow, but we don't have to have it at home either - LOL! It is about an hour drive - not bad at all!! There are several ski resorts around here, and we are only about two hours from Tahoe, which has fabulous skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing. We drove up for the day and we had a fabulous time! These pictures are of when we first got there and were out in front of the lodge. Kayla was really excited and the boys were ready to hit the slopes! The older girl you see in the picture is my son's girlfriend Nikki - they have been dating over two years now and she came out from Florida for the week between Christmas and New Years. He is in Florida visiting her now over Spring Break. Anyway, I enjoyed making these pages since all my chicks were back under one roof if only for a little while and we had a great time as a family. As you can see, I left my journaling block blank - I am going to add that today because I don't normally journal at a crop, I just try and get my pages done. I also added some dazzling diamonds to my punched out snowflakes (I used my snow blossom punch) and it really sparkles IRL! Hope you like them!
Recipe:
Paper - Not Quite Navy card stock, Brocade Blue card stock, Bashful Blue card stock
Stamps - Itty Bitty Backgrounds (stamped on the punched out snowflakes)
Ink -Brocade Blue Stampin' Write marker (for the stitching around the journaling block)
Accessories - Crop-a-dile, Jumbo pewter eyelets, mat stack and paper piercer, Corner Ticket Punch, Snow Blossom Punch, Dazzling Diamonds, Liquid Glue

This is a great page. You're so lucky that you can just go to the snow and leave it behind when you are finished. When we get snow, it doesn't seem to ever leave, especially this winter. Take care!
