Snow, Sketch and Scrapbook Pages

Holy moly, that was a good storm yesterday. Kids were thrilled as the snow came pouring down like rain - nothing gentle about those flakes. They quickly piled up and coated everything - it's like the snow was hosed on to the trees - snow is wrapped around all sides of the trunks and branches. The kids went to bed hoping for a snow day, after all the public schools had already announced they'd be closed, but I told them their school, which is private, wasn't on the list yet; it popped up around 11 pm - even I was thinking "finally!" The boys woke early to check the news and the "closed school scroll" at the bottom of the screen - and there is was! "And there was much rejoicing. Yeah." (for any Monty Python fans :) So they are out snowball fighting, snow man building and generally enjoying the free day. Enjoy the photos Maggie :)
Snow or no snow, it's Sketch Wednesday. Today's sketch comes from Sketchy Thursdays. Remember, this challenge, plus Monday's and the 5 on Friday are due by Saturday evening to be eligible for Treats.

Then there's the really big new - I scrapbooked again. I know. "What," you say, "Isn't that like twice in a month?" Yes, it is. And I'll be doing more again this weekend. Here's a look at what I did over Spring Break.

Enjoy your Wednesday - snow day or not. Photobucket

That's some seriously heavy snow! And one big snowman. (I hope that storm is not making it's way over here.)
You scrapped again! Go Lori!

Thanks for sharing, I miss snow so bad, we have actually had flakes 4 times and snow stick once. So it has been a nicer winter than last year, but still. Plus I will take a blizzard any day over roaches. Good job :) And your layouts are awesome.

It's great to see LOs with lots of photos - quite an inspiration for my travel scrapping. Thanks!

Here is my LO:
