    Default Snow Day

    Debating whether or not to enter this in the frames challenge. If I don't get another layout with a frame done by the deadline, then I'll use this one.

    I did a lot of things on this layout, so I'm proud of it.


    We had a TON of snow (well, a ton for our area anyway) on March 2, which is late in the year for snow. So of course it deserved a layout.









    I used opal glitter glue on the letters and then outlined "day" with a metallic silver sharpie to make it stand out a bit more



    and here's the frame



    The journaling:
    On the second day of March, we got a lot of snow! Andrew and Jordan were happy not to have school, and Andrew couldn’t wait to go sledding (which a neighbor took him later). He shoveled about half of the driveway while he was waiting, and most of the sidewalk – he did a great job! The girls had fun playing in the snow, but Natalie got cold quickly. And Andrew made a neat snow angel! It was a nice snow day, complete with lots of hot chocolate.

    I remember some of these pictures. You captured them well. I love the effect that the frame has on Jordan.... love that blurring of the surrounds so you focus on her. I think the use of the glitter on the letters was a real hit and the photo placement is structured but also just random enough to spice it up.

    Can Andrew teach my boy to shovel so diligently?
