December Daily™ 2012 | Day Eighteen

It's not every December that we get snow here. And we do it really doesn't tend to last very long and I get really excited to see all those flakes coming down. We got some snow today - just enough to not close schools (which they usually do with just a tiny bit here) and for me to get a chance to go outside, tilt my head back and catch some snowflakes on my tongue.

It also provided me with great excuse to use a bunch of snowflake embellishments.

Here's Day Eighteen:

Photo on the journaling card + a transparent page in the middle + photo on the left side.

On top of the transparent page I added snowflakes on top of snowflakes (on both the front and back side). The snowflakes are from Studio Calico's Wonderland Snowflakes Wood Veneer and Studio Calico's Wonderland Ephemera Pack. I use Glossy Accents to adhere the wood veneer.

The text along the bottom comes from a Christmas Quotations digital set:

    Love this layout Ali! We will be having a white Christmas here in Latvia! We have quite a bit of the white stuff! So much that they have the snow patrol out shoveling it off of the rooftops to make way for Santa!

    Love this spread! It is snowing here is Nova Scotia as I write this (and schools are cancelled for the day in my area) - looks like we are going to get dumped on pretty good today, however it'll most likely be gone before Christmas.

    Love that picture of you! I'm trying to get more pics of myself into my memory keeping. Do you set up a tripod for your self shots, or do you have someone else take them?

    We're under a blizzard warning today, here in Nebraska. I could make a page that looks just like yours! Woo Hoo!!!

    Ali, your house looks so beautiful! I'm curious to death - what room is above your front door? Those three big windows on the top floor? That's so pretty!

    I can only dream of having that reaction to snow. ;) Here, our reaction to the first snow -- which fell in October this year -- was, "Noooo...". Maybe after a few years in Africa I'll be more excited to come home to a white Christmas.

    That photo made me smile! :)
    We're expecting snow today and tonight -- looks like my daughter's Christmas wish will be coming true a bit early!

    The snow looks like so much fun! We had a few flurries here, but nothing that stuck.

    ah yes . . . . snow. We have plenty here in Alberta, Canada. Too bad the snow comes with very cold temperatures as well. I can do without a white Christmas, but it is rare!
