Wishing for Snow

For Mothers & Daughters Creations' last scrapbook challenge for the month, the design team members were tasked to create a winter layout. Now I thought I'd be having problems with this. For one, we live in a tropical country where snow is utterly inexistent. Likewise, we've never been abroad where there is snow. So what do I do? Then I remembered how my children constantly long to see and play with snow. I found some pictures of them pretending and imagining themselves in snow and thought I'd scrap that. :-)

I used papers from Best Creations Inc. and Imaginisce Paper. I also used May Arts Ribbons and a sticker journaling paper (I think this is My Little Yellow Bicycle).

Check out the blog site of MDC and see the awesome work of the other DT's. Thanks for looking!

Title: Wishing for Snow

Materials: Best Creations and Imaginisce Patterned Papers, DCWV Cardstock, American Crafts Alpha Thickers, May Arts Ribbons, Sizzix Round-A-Bout on foam, Prima flowers and Say it With Crystals, MM metal word, MM flower brad, Staedler Pen, My Little Yellow Bicycle journaling paper, Carl corner rounder puncher

Living in a tropical country, we only have 2 seasons: wet and dry seasons. That's why you both bug me that you want to play with snow. But even if we don't have snow here, that won't stop you from pretending and imagining. I love you both! Love, Mom - Nadine age 7, Raya age 5

This is "cool" Mia! That's always a problem when they ask you to create "snow" layouts di ba. Hehehe! Good thing your girls are game for that "snow."

I remember me and my cousin (we were both 5yo ata at the time), kinutkot namin yung styro just to create our own snow. aah, childhood memories! :)
