A year ago, we had snowstorm after snowstorm, compiled with ice storms.
This year, I'm happy to look at last year's snow photos.
Yes, I do enjoy sledding down our backyard hill.
No, DH doesn't enjoy snow-blowing.
Thank You, God, for this mild winter so far! We both agree that we could easily be Padre Island snowbirds.
I used CTMH Wonderland papers, big dimensional alphabets, Sparkles, Let It Snow stamp set, Twilight ink, and an Art Philosophy Cricut-cut snowflake with a Juniper Twinkle brad.

Nothing is more fun than spending a cold Midwest winter day scrapbooking wonderful memories of activities with our girls into Studio J layouts!
Close To My Heart's online program, Studio J, has a wide variety of paper selections and embellishments. It makes everything easy, fun, and quick!
Just being able to put these memories into albums for our family members is such a rewarding feeling. I know the girls will treasure them forever as they grow up and browse their albums. It's so fun to hear their giggles and comments. "Remember when we ...?" Oh, yes. It's imprinted into my "mind albums" too!
Tips for growing and stretching out of your comfort zone: Remember to add your faith statements, Scripture verses, prayers, and wishes to your pages ... and scrapbook the challenging, sad, sorrow-filled, and rough times too. Your layouts will reflect your beliefs and values and be a testimony/Christian witness to your family for their future!
I hope you enjoyed a happy Valentine's Day! Jesus says, "Love each other as I have loved you." (John 15:12 NCV) I have a layout in the works to reflect the love of the Lord in my life.
God bless. He is always good all the time!
