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:

Here’s a link of all my days so far for 2012:

    Just lovely Ali. This year it looks like I’ll be having a green Christmas. We haven’t had snow yet this month. Don’t think I’ll be able to use those snowflake embellishments. Sigh.

    Hi Ali, I live in Sweden and the thought of closing schools when there is snow actually made me laugh a little. I wonder how much snow we have to get before the schools close. We got 40 cm a couple of weeks ago and since the kindergarten is still open, I assume that is not enough. :)

    Also, love the look of your house!

      I’m in northern Alberta, Canada and I can’t imagine anything closing for snow or cold either. It started snowing early this year, at Thanksgiving Oct 7. And it can snow as late as May long weekend. Not that it stays on the ground everyday fromOct-May. But I’m glad you enjoyed your dusting of snow.

    Awesome! I remember being in Canada for Christmas one year and watching the little snow flakes on the car window. They really are quite special. Only snow around here is in the freezer!!

    Your book is just amazing and I am loving how you add all the bits and bobs. Ours is definitely a white Christmas here in Minnesota. We got 13″ about a week ago and I don’t see it going anywhere until at least late April or early May.

    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.

    So love this page! I hope we get snow where I live!

    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?

      Ali said…

      I do have a tripod but I often just set my camera on a table or chair or counter or the ground to take the shots with the self-timer. I also have a remote but I don’t always remember to use it.

    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.

    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!
