snowflakes and snowballs at lasting memories

This week at lasting memories we are tossing ourselves into December
with a few well flung snowballs and a sprinkling of snowflakes.
 This weeks challenge is calling for a flurry of snow flakes and /or snowballs on your layout.
If you live in less frosty regions you can always scrap some of your snowflake ornaments or even the paper snowflakes the kids make at school.  I was tempted to do just that as we don't get a lot of snow in Eugene, Oregon. But we do go up to the snow in the cascade range.
Here are some more of our spring break photos from  March 2012
I used spring colors for my layout as it was our spring vacation, but gave it a winter vibe by cutting the knit flower embellishment into a snowflake.  I also used a little bit of liquid glass and glitter on the buttons for the snowball feel and some more on the snowflake to and some extra shimmer.

The knit frame, buttons and snowflake/flower are all die cuts that have been in my stash for ever.

I just cut into the flower petals to make it look like a snowflake.  Love how it turned out
Hope you'll join us for some winter fun with snowflakes and snowballs


  1. I love the yellow with a snow layout! Looks neat.

  2. Oh how fun with your little snowflake! Neat idea and love your little 'plug' for those who don't have snow. Good thinking! Great LO!

  3. How creative! Love how you used spring colors!

  4. Great idea with the spring colour for a winter theme layout. I love it.
