Snow, snow, go away!

Before i start, i must confess now that i've still yet to take good quality pictures of all my layouts so what i can share with you here is limited.  It's a long project that i hope to have finished in a few weeks, and that's not counting finally completing all the unfinished layouts that are stacked up in my scraproom! Also, to get myself started with this blog, i am mostly posting layouts i've done in the past, but i am constantly working on new ones and will make sure to post them as i go along. I just wish i could make scrapbooking my full-time job!

But on to the subject at hand... as you can guess, snow is not my favorite thing!  And like a cruel joke from Mother Nature, we were just granted quite a few inches of it last night.  We were literally snowed in this morning and Yves had to shovel us out of our apartment.  Aww... thank god for Yves!!!  But what else to expect when you live in eastern Canada, right?  The one good thing about snow though is that it makes for awesome scrapbooking layouts!  So here are a few snow-inspired layouts i've made throughout the years... 

Snow Day
This layout is one of the first layouts i made, back during my 'black background days'- haha  Every layout i did back then was done using 2 pages of black cardstock as background as we were taught how to do at a store i went to at the time.  It did look nice, but i quickly grew tired of it.  Needless to say, it's been so long that i don't remember what paper or embellishments i used on this one.  The dog on the pictures is my beloved late Buffy whom i had for 9 years and who passed away in 2007.  I still miss her terribly and seeing her still brightens up my day, so much that i have pictures of her in my cubicle at work. 

A Sweet Time
Aww... March with the smell of Spring in the air and the sweet taste of maple syrup on the lips! I can't wait!  I really like the colour combination on this layout.  It reminds me a bit of the 'Daddy's Hands' layout in a 2nd post which i entered in the KaiserCraft contest.  Again, i have no idea what paper i used here. The snowflakes and swirls are chipboard that i painted with Tim Holtz' Adirondack paint dabbers.

 Cold Hands, Warm Hearts
Awww, beautiful, beautiful BoBunny Snowy Serenade which i think is pretty much sold out now, unfortunately. I used a Martha Stewart punch on the picture borders, to which i can't find the name for the life of me, even if i am an expert 'googler'. (If any of you know, please comment! I have to start better documenting what i own and what i use.)

Used here is again the BoBunny Snowy Serenade collection, as well as the stickers in that collection. This layout was inspired by 2 separate layouts my friend Krista found online and I scraplifted the finished project from her.

And on that note, HAPPY WINTER to all 7 of my followers (and hopefully, all the rest who will soon join them - hehehe)!
