Today I would like to share a layout I made for two different challenges:
The first is the Challenge YOUrself challenge. We decided to make the challenge fun for the first one of the year, so it is an anything goes challenge, as long as you have YOU in the photo!
And secondly, because my friend, Heather, encouraged me to do so, I am entering my layout into the More Than Words challenge for this month, too! What an amazing challenge site it is. I LOVED seeing all of the design team's work and the entries so far this month, too.
I also want to share my layout at Art Journal Journey because this month's prompt is winter wonderland!
And without further ado, here is my layout:
With some close ups:
Here is a close-up of the photo - we are twins, but have such different personalities at times:
I used this photo of my twin sister and me . . . taken when we decorated our Christmas tree in December. We have a tradition of "trimming the tree and decking the halls" with my sister and her husband every year, and it has become a beloved one in our family! I feel that this pic really depicts my personality and how much I enjoy enjoying the magic of the Christmas season, especially with my wonderful family!!! Karen and I dreamed of snow and having a White Christmas, but it wasn't it the cards. But we did enjoy watching the movie:
We had temps into the 60's during December, thanks to El Niño:
But no worries - Winter is here with a vengeance in January! Brrrrrrrr . . . we are not accustomed to these cold temperatures yet.
And I would like to end by sharing a recent photo that I took. This week's Our Beautiful World prompt is calm:
I took this photo at Jacobsburg Park which is 5 minutes from our home and converted it to black and white:
And here are two more; we haven't had snow, but you can see the frost that looks like snow in these photos:
Well, that's it for today! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. Your visits mean very much to me. I wish you a wonderful January and very happy 2016!
Hugs to you!
