* snow day *

Last Wednesday, we received the only significant snow fall of the season.  It's hard to say how much since it was very heavy and wet, but I'm guessing around 10 inches.  Being March, I knew it wouldn't last long, so I pushed my daughter and husband out the door with my granddaughter and told them to "GO SLEDDING".  Safely perched above on the deck with camera in hand, I got some really good pics of the 30 or so runs down the hill on saucer.  Unknown to me, it had been "pre-greased".  LOL.  This was a tough layout for me because I normally don't do the bright colors, but Tacoah's winter clothes and her saucer screamed "NEON", so, it is what it is.  I comprised by using a solid burgurdy background over hot pink.  The strips of patterned cardstock framing the photo also provide a pop of color.  I used the Hello Kitty font at 3/4" for the negative OOPS in the photo frame.  A few splatters of white paint on the background help to provide that "snowy" feel.  Overall, I am pleased with how it turned out.  Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Awesome layout, Francine! I'm so glad that your DGD got 1 really good day of sledding on her new saucer!!
