All About Snow

 Over at The Paper Trail blog, the monthly challenge is up. And I'm participating.
It is all about the WHITE STUFF this time!!! But, we are putting a generalized twist on it for you! We want to see white stuff on your layouts - this can be in the form of snow - snow pictures, snow papers, snow embellishments, homemade snow for your projects!! It can also be in the form of white - white papers, white space on your layout - whatever your imagination can dream up for this white, snowy challenge is a go!!!!!

This is a page I put together that is about a Snow Day. I used a poem that I wrote in 2004 that was published in the newspaper. Embellishments: Snow Flakes, of course, in blues and white.  This is cute way that I can keep my published poem on display and in a safe place. I put it in an unfinished spiral bound scrapbook that I had.
The Paper Trail Challenge is what inspired me to pull this clipping out of the old manila file folder it was kept in and make a cute snow day page for it, and enter the challenge at the same time. A good way to kill two birds with one stone. :)

Here is a close up of the poem so that if you want you can read it. It is by no means great or perfect, but please remember I was in middle school at the time :).
