It's a Snow Day!!!

It's a snowy day here in Illinois...really our first of the year. We have had ice and a tiny bit of snow, but this is our first accumulation. Right now, we have about 3" on the ground, but it is snowing and sleeting again so we should accumulate a bit more. The debate in this house, with Ben out of town this week and Jacob home from school, is which one of us is going to go out and shovel. I am thinking that the teenager may lose this one, but I did only do yoga this morning and the exercise would do me some good so we will see...

I have a bit of an art share today. The Card Positioning System blog is celebrating their 100th Sketch this week with a huge party with lots of fun sponsors/giveaways. I love this blog and unfortunately don't play along as often as I would like, but Tami always creates amazing sketches which the DT always rocks out! TONS of inspiration over there...you need to go check them out if you have never been there before. Here is the layout that I created using their sketch for this week...


Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Love Etc (Jan. kit of the month...only available for a few more days!)
*MME papers
*brads
*Martha Stewart border punch
*Marvy Uchida scallop circle punch



Thanks to everyone who offered advice/sympathy on my camera issues. It's frustrating because I become so ADD when it comes to sit down to read/learn about what I can do with it. I just need to learn better patience and the learning will come. Funny though, we did go out Sunday to take some photos. I was looking for some old country signs to take photos of and Ben thought that it would be fun to take me to a little town just northeast of here that he thought would have some good photo opportunities for me. When we left the house, we had some snow flurries, but nothing accumulating and the roads weren't even wet...they were really just floating around in the air. By the time we made it to Lebanon (the cute little town...which is not even 10 miles away) the roads were completely covered, slick, and snowpacked and they easily had an inch of snow on the ground so we turned around and came home. When we arrived back here, it still wasn't even wet and it didn't change all afternoon. Truly bizarre and of course, no photos to show for it. I am not sure if I am going to be able to get any sign photos this week or not....
