Finally, a layout to post. This is actually a page from my Hall of Fame entry. It was for the crafty combo assignment and my combo was hand stitching and beading. I remember working on this page at a crop and the women around me thought I was nuts! I got the page together fairly quick but those snowflakes really slowed me down.
I think I may have only gotten one snowflake completed before the crop was over! I had to sketch out the snowflakes first and then for the stitching part I would use two beads on each stitch. So, it was stitch, bead-bead, stitch, bead-bead... it was a long process! I really didn't mind it taking so long because, I thought, the outcome was worth it.

Journaling: It took twenty-four hours of continuous snowfall to end up with around eleven inches. About twenty minutes to bundle him up. Fifteen shouts of "o-side". And thirty seconds to decide this was sNOw fun.

The pictures on this layout cracked me up. We just knew that Drew would love the snow and he was all game until he fell in it. After that he was done! The only pictures I could get were of him crying or screaming! Hopefully, if we get some snow this year he will enjoy it!
