Welcome to the Independence Day Blog Hop. If you didn't start at Amanda's Blog, you can follow the link and see everyone's projects. You should have arrived here from Adele's Blog.
Our challenge for this blog hop was to use the colors Red, White, and Blue. I really didn't know what I wanted to make for this challenge, but this paper from the Echo Park Collection-Wintertime, was perfect. I've been working on winter pictures lately, and this paper is just gorgeous.
This page is all about a sledding trip this past winter. We had a lunch break between classes on Tuesday. One of my friends is from California and has never went sledding before. This was our senior year of college, and we had a lot of things to do on our bucket list. So we decided one day instead of eating that we were going to pack up our sleds and snow gear, and sled on campus. Except we only had two sleds and four people.
We quickly realized why you can't sled on campus. The hill is very steep....and drops right down into a faculty parking lot. We had fun making trains on our sleds and falling off before flying over the snow banks. We made the most of our last winter in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
A little more about my page. The patterned paper is from Echo Park. I embossed the red and navy card stock with my Cuttlebug. Then I sanded them down with my Tim Holtz Sanding Tool. I dressed up the circles with some snowflakes and embellished them with glitter and my i-Rock. The snowflakes trail is stitched with my Sew Easy and embellished with Liquid Pearls.
