Winter Wonderland: A Scrapbook Layout

Winter Wonderland








As I'm preparing to ring in the new year, I've been looking back at this past year and everything that has happened.  There have been good moments, bad ones and even some great ones.  My sister and I have been remodeling our house and we even landscaped the front lawn this summer.  I close out my storage unit tomorrow now that we made room for my furniture in the house and my sister and her fiancĂ© adopted a puppy just before Christmas.  A lot has happened and there have been so many pictures of it all, but some of my favorites are of the dogs in the snow.  I just love my little Jacob in his
snow booties and the fluffy powder of the Rocky Mountains nesting in the pine needles.  



Hello Winter Layout
Hello Winter:  Because of the busier background, I mounted the photos on white cardstock and used pop dots to give it them some dimension.  I think it helps them stand out and the background becomes a "blizzard" of activity--just like a Colorado snow storm!


I received a ton of scrapbooking goodies from my mom and grandmother this Christmas, including a Silhouette Cameo!  So I decided to give them a test drive.
