A Windy Day



Brrr...it's windy out there today. Winnie the Pooh and his blustery day ain't got nothing on me. So 'tis a good day for a blustery wintery page. This one is all done completely with Little Yellow Bicycle and the Winter Twig collection, which obviously, is great for winter pages. These winter pictures were courtesy of Hillary, my stepdaughter and her boyfriend Jacob. We had a freak storm here in Massachusetts at the end of October and were hit with a plethora of snow and power outages and general mayhem. We, however, were one of the few towns that didn't lose power so I just had to sympathize with all my friends around us who were affected. Anyway, I was a bad scrapbooker and didn't venture outside to take any photos at all. Hillary, a scrapbooker herself, was undaunted, however. And out she traipsed to take some fun snowy pictures which I snagged from Facebook and was able to use some fun pictures for my new scrapbooking paper. I really do love paper collections these days, although it almost feels like cheating to have everything already matched and ready for me to go. But there are no rules in scrapbooking, I like to tell everyone. They get tired of hearing it, but I do love saying it.

Love this layout! Great job "appropriating" the pictures from facebook! Gotta love the technology today! We are having our snow now, and I cannot wait to get out and get some new papers to scrap it all! Thanks for sharing! -Amanda
