Winter Peace

Good Morning everyone!  Welcome February!

Today I would like to share a layout that I recently made for the current Kraft + challenge and I am going to share some photos of snow, too!

Isn't the sketch beautiful?  I was asked to be a guest designer this month!!

I am very happy and honored to have made this layout for their challenge:

 Here is a different view:

And a close up:

I love winter and snow.  Especially snow!  It seems to blanket everything and bring peace to a chaotic world for a little while.  Don't get me wrong, I don't like shoveling it or driving in it when it's treacherous, but I just love the magic snow brings to the earth.  What do you think about snow?

I encourage all of you scrappers to check out the Kraft + challenge this month.  Thanks once again, Kraft +, for asking me to guest design this month!

I am ending my post with some snow photos of snow taken in our back yard and at the farm down the street from us last year.  Unfortunately, we haven't had much of it yet this year.  But I know, there is still plenty of time left in winter . . .

This week's Our Beautiful World prompt is "Beautiful!"

What could be more beautiful than snow?

And one of my favorites is the one taken of the full moon . . .

So peaceful!!!  Thank you, Our Beautiful World!

And thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  Hugs to all of you!

  2. This is gorgeous! LOVING the colors and the rosettes!!! And LOVING those photos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Oh my goodness! Your layout is absolutely beautiful! The colours and embellishments are wonderful and go so well with the gorgeous pictures. Lovely words too! I love the snow, we don't get it much here in Bournemouth. There has been none this year. I think there is something magical about it. It's not so good if you have to travel though! Your photos are beautiful! I hope you are doing ok? Take care. xxx

  4. Your layout is simply gorgeous. Love your snowy photos.

  5. I agree with you about snow! It sort of forces us to slow down and just observe and breathe. We've had a lot this year which is unusual and nice for a change.
    Love the LO- and not just the beautiful pics. I like the quote about snow and all the embellies, too!

  6. pretty layout!! Love how you layered the pictures!

  7. This is brilliant....looks wonderful - I love the look of snow & wouldn't mind some now to cool us down, to be honest! I do hope you get your 'fill' of it this year. Sooner rather than later!!!!

  8. Hi Sharon, what a beautiful layout to have as Guest inspiration for Kraft this month.. I love that you did snow photos.. sitting here in a relentless heat wave at the moment I just wonder about snow.. i have never seen in real life before, I hope I do one day!! the photos are soft and I feel a kind of hush at the white landscape, how magical... I hope your week is going well... xx

  9. Your photos of the snowy landscape are quite beautiful. I love looking at winter photos - I'm just glad I don't have to shovel or clean up snow and ice. Thanks for visiting me - I love your blog name, That Girl Fritchey. I loved watching That Girl tv show and coveted her hip wardrobe (for the 60's).


  10. Beautiful pictures of snowy landscape. Also I like your layout, design and colours.

  11. Thanks for coming by! So true, what is more beautiful then snow? What I also love with snow is the silence that hangs in the air:) Have a great weekend!

  12. A wonderful take on the challenge by using snow as the highlight. The hessian banner is perfect and I love the stamping on the chipboard and the background. Thanks for Guest Designing at Kraft+ this month.

  13. Beautiful photos of snowy views !! Your layout is really gorgeous !!

  14. love your design and the beautiful world of yours :)

  15. Beautiful Sharon. I am not a winter person, but agree that there is something magical about snow, it looks so pretty. We are having a heat wave in Australia, so looking at your gorgeous layout and photo's is extra nice.
