1st Snow Day (Lasting Memories Challenge)

Good Morning :) Happy Christmas rush week! Oh my lots to do yet on my list, how is yours coming along? Cookie backing this weekend is taking place and I got some of the hubby's Christmas shopping done :) With just a few more things to get should be done and wrapped by Tuesday night :) That is a tight schedule but easy enough to get done. How you all made out with Christmas Card sent out ? I found that I didn't make enough and had to send out (the dreaded word :) a few store bought cards. Yes Christmas in July this coming year will be dedicated to Christmas Cards making :)  Now on with the crafty challenge product :)
This weeks challenge over at Lasting Memories is National cut out a Snow Flake Day w/optional Holiday twist!
When : Always December 27
Make Cut Out Snowflake Day is  here and now. Here's a day to show your crafty skills, as you make paper snowflakes. Making cut out snowflakes is a great project for kids. However, you don't have to be a kid, to have fun making paper snowflakes. It's a skill that is practiced by many people. They say no two snowflakes are alike. It shouldn't come as a surprise, that there are seemingly countless different snowflake designs. Templates abound, from fast and easy patterns, to intricate time consuming designs to challenge the most practiced "snowflaker". So, if you like snow...bring it on! Bring out the paper and scissors, and cut out some paper snowflakes on this very special  Make Cut Out Snowflake Day. "Make a Cut-Out Snowflake" - Scrap about Snow, Snowflakes, Winter etc... Or Switch: Holiday Winter Wonderland
This will also be our last challenge of 2015! Can you believe another year has gone by! All the links to Decembers challenges are listed on the sidebar over at Lasting Memories, so please join in if you have some time to sneak away to your craft room. We will leave the challenges up till Wednesday, December 30 and then we will close and the voting will take place after the challenge has ended till Saturday, Jan 2. We'll be kicking off a new year of challenges on Sunday, January 3!
My layout for this challenge :) My great granddaughter experience snow for the 1st time almost :) It snowed the day they brought her home, but to me when they are playing in it then it's their 1st time :) So these pictures came off of Facebook of her, they live in South Dakota and had snow in November. I used the sketch over at the Memory Nest for my inspiration for the layout:
 I thought it was perfect for the photos and the journaling block. Here are some close ups of the layout:
 I played around with cut files of snowflakes from my Silhouette, punch snowflakes from a MS punch: Alpine Snowflake and a Creative Memories sticker pack: Chalet. The background paper was also snowflakes.
 The date added to a sticker from the CM Chalet sheet and added some silver and snowflake sequins
The journaling came from the conversation I had with our Granddaughter Jessica about Emily :) Love to include these kinds of conversations from Facebook on layouts :) I hope to see your fun creation up on the Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenge blog :) Have a great day :) I'm off to finish up my cookie baking.
