Perfect Snow Day

Back in December my husband and I headed to the mountains with the kids and our little beagle! We just had some cold days and the mountain was dumped with white sparkly snow! There were hardly any other visitors on the mountain that day and we were making some fresh tracks. We brought along a sled and tube, and of course my kids always know how to entertain themselves by climbing trees or starting snow ball fights! We also brought a Coleman stove and boiled up some water on the tailgate for hot chocolate and apple cider! It truly was a perfect snow day!

Here is the layout I finished to showcase our photographs from that day. I am submitting it to this weeks "Snow Much Fun" challenge at Heart 2 Heart. It is not a typical snow themed layout! I pulled out some colors from our snow gear, hence the pink and black. I wanted to add lots of sparkle to remind me of how pretty the snow looked! I added bling gems, sparkles and sprayed the background with shimmer paint. I finally added in images to remember sipping our hot chocolate and cider.

 
 
 
 
 
*some items are not Close To My Heart, but the majority of my layout uses CTMH products and the design is from the Make It from Your Heart How to Book, Volume 1. :)

I just love your layout Amy -- the black with the "sprinkles" of snow on it is just a perfect touch to this snowy layout. Thanks for joining us at H2H :)
