And finally.....

It has taken a while but here at last is my December page. This snowy weather is beautiful but goodness, doesn't everything take a long time! Living in this winter wonderland is a long cycle of getting dressed and undressed, drying wet clothes, trekking through either deep snow, or tip-toeing over sheet ice. Add children and animals into the mix and add at least another fifteen minutes!

The background is a mixture of Dylusions and Studioline paints, oversprayed with Dylusions mica sprays in the special edition Christmas colours. The tree is a Sizzix die cut out of Crafty Individuals Christmas paper cut up and glitter glued - after all it is Christmas! The stamp is from Stampotique.

Last Friday I had a first: I went snow shoeing! The trusty Beast (my car) ploughed through snow and over ice to reach the moor a mile or two outside our village. We then snow-shoed through snow which was at times above my knees (and I am 5'11). It was great fun and VERY tiring!

And this is what happens to a dog who has at times had to swim through snow it was so deep!


  1. Wow, what a fantastic journal page, I absolutely love it. Gorgeous photos of the snow, hope it soon goes.

  2. Love the calender page, the colours are great and so christmassy! The snow shoeing looks fab x

  3. Wohohho! That snow shoeing looks like tremendous fun! And all that white space (oooh, when I wrote that it made me think of Dina, hehehe!) anyway the white space looks beautiful and peaceful.
    Your December page is FABULOUS Sarah - love the 'Santa stakeout' words... x x x
