Before you see this layout, I have to share the story behind it....January 2, 2011 (my birthday) it was freezing cold and raining. Keep in mind I live in sunny Southern California where in the summer it can get up to 110 degrees. There were no weather predictions of snow at all. As we drove home from my birthday dinner, up the hill, I said to my husband, "Gosh, that looks like it's snow on our windshield." And it was. It snowed and snowed and snowed for 2 days. Truly, the best birthday present EVER! All our neighbors joined us outside and we had a massive snowball fight, made snowmen and froze our butts off. We are skiers so we had the right clothing but most everyone else were wearing socks on their hands instead of mittens! It was a blast and so, so beautiful.
The base of the paper is from DCWV paper stack. The embellishments are from my local craft store (Remember When Scrapbooking). I placed a light blue ribbon 3/4 way down the page and layered it with a white ball ribbon. At the bottom is Bazzill card stock cut about 4 inches in height and stamped with white snowflakes using white Momento ink. I used an EK Success snowflake punch on white glitter paper. The font "snowball fight" is from Don Juan Cricut cartridge. I layered it with blue on the bottom and white on top.
