This is one of my favorite reasons to scrap. I love capturing the everyday things. But I really enjoy getting pics of the "firsts." First food, first tooth, and in this case First Snow. The look on his face is priceless. He looks unsure and a little worried. But I assure you after daddy showed him how to make a snowball, he was all over the white stuff!

I really enjoyed creating this layout. A color challenge was posted over at Have Your Way With Paper. The colors being Purple, Black, and White. Troublesome colors, but I think once I threw in a little blue they worked perfect for this winter theme. I tried some new techniques. I glittered the chipboard letters. Very easy and I was amazed at the results, and the fact that the glitter stayed put. All I did was run the letters through my small Xyron sticker maker face down so that that face got sticky, then covered with glitter. Love the look and will be using this technique again. Then I cut an image from my Cricut, and stamped over it and used stickles. I really like the layered effect.
