Most of my summer photos are from my beloved Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire. We are there every summer, but we have been there only once during the winter. It is an other-worldly place under the snow. You can hear the frozen lake shifting and cracking all day and all night. The snow is measured not in inches, but in feet. There have been winters there that exceed even their expectations with dire consequences. As a result, year round residents have taken to shovelling their roofs.
I took the photo above during that one winter trip. It was back when my boys still wore snowsuits and boots when the flakes began to fly, back when a trip to New Hampshire in the winter would be considered an adventure rather than something to be endured, back when sliding down the plowed mountain of snow at the top of the driveway was still considered awesome.
Unfortunately, the layouts from those days are in old Creative Memories albums that measure 12x15, before I had a scanner. Going back to scan them now is a place I do not want to go.
So, instead, on this cold winter's day, I thought I would share some of my favorite winter layouts from the last few years.
|My husband took these fabulous photos of our boys and our beloved dog, Molly. The new pup loves snow, too, but not quite this much.|
|That is a diecut snowman coated with beeswax that was melted in a Melting Pot. The letters were coated with the wax as well. It was great fun painting on the wax.|
|This was another layout from just last year after the big blizzard (Nemo, I believe they called it) in February. The snowflakes are from EK Success (Jolie's). The cardstock was sprayed and dribbled with Glimmer Mist.|
|This layout is very old (2006) and was published is some magazine or other that no longer exists.|
|These photos are from the night before Nemo last February I cut up the lace paper since I really never know what to do with it and added lots of embossing powder. I seem to use a lot of embossing powder of winter layouts.|
