We woke up last Saturday morning, happy to see some snow falling! It continued to snow all day, so we woke up Sunday morning to a bright & sparkly winter wonderland. I couldn't wait to get home after church to go for a walk. These photos were taken on the Sauk River Trail, just a few blocks from my house.
This was our first snowfall of the year and it was interesting to see both signs of fall and winter in the same landscape. When I laid out my photos to scrapbook, I decided to mix the two seasons as well. I used a few scraps of Into The Woods paper (p 43, Holiday Catalog). If that paper looks familiar to you, it's because I've featured it several times over the past couple of months on various projects! The snowflake paper is from the Season Of Cheer pack of paper. I showed it last week & pointed out that this paper can be used ALL winter long (not just for Christmas). Both of these sets of paper will no longer be available after Dec 31, when the Holiday Catalog expires.

Here is a close-up of one of my sparkly snowflakes. I used a retired punch that Stampin' Up sold several years ago. I added Dazzling Diamonds glitter (p 162, Annual Catalog) to make it shine. There is a new snowflake punch in the Holiday Catalog, p 25) that also has a coordinating stamp set called Flurry Of Wishes. Again, snowflakes are an item that can be used all winter long, on any craft project.
