Ice Day 2013

This past April we had some crazy weather. We had snow the day I threw my cousin's bridal shower, the next weekend we went hiking in our shorts, and the week after that we had a 2 hr delay for some ice.

This past weekend I went to a crop. The temp was 34, so it was all rain on the radar. Little did I know that the ground was so cold from our -20's snap that everything froze on contact and the pre-treatment and the salt were minimally effective. So come leaving at 11pm I was in for a nasty surprise. It was a major skating rink. I've never driven in anything so bad in my entire life. Next time I will heed the warnings a bit better.

So I created this page in honor of the ice this spring. I was able to walk on the grass because it crunched under my feet this day. Saturday was completely a different type of situation.

 I've been hemming and hawing about this page. I hated the paper I had picked. I eventually came upon the navy and red color combo, and it struck me! I used some plain Coordinations paper for this page. I cut the snowflakes out using my Silhouette. I strategically placed each one on the page, and then cut them out.

I used my iRock and some Paper Studio gems to bling up the otherwise plain snowflakes. My Smooch ink was an absolute mess. It was clogged up and would not spray nicely.

Here's to hoping for a warmer spring and no more ice. How many days til Groundhogs day?

  1. Great use of the negative space Megan. I did that for the title page of my December Daily.
