JYC 2010 - 2nd December

Welcome to 2nd December! 
Shimelle's prompt for today is about Christmas weather. 

In previous years I have journalled about lack of snow at Christmas, but this year we have had snow since last Saturday here in Suffolk. I came here with my friend Linda on Friday night.  We planned a few days crafting over the weekend including spending Sunday at The Big Event Crop at Henley. Alan and Robert came up to join us on Sunday after the crop and we had a lovely meal out in Orford on Sunday night. It didn't actually snow on here on Sunday.  We woke to a very snowy scene outside on Monday morning, so Linda and Robert set off home. I had an appointment here on Tuesday, and I have the week off work.  I made my appointment by walking there and back through the snow. We were not able to return to Kent on Wednesday as planned but keep listening into the weather and traffic reports. We can't get through Essex to the Dartford Bridge / Tunnel due to the weather and resulting problems with the M25 and A12. Just as well I am on annual leave! We have managed to get out each day either on foot or a short distance by car, to then walk around. Thus we took photos in Snape and the Tunstall Forest (already blogged). Today we made it as far as Woodbridge for lunch in the pub, sitting by the open fire, after walking around the town.

This layout was made with photos I took in the Tunstall Forest as they show this winter's weather perfectly.
The papers are all old ones from the Basic Grey 'Dasher' collection. I used an EK success border punch, lace, charms, flat backed gems and ribbons. The Gem flourishes are from Prima's E Line.
For the title 'Winter' was created with letters cut on the Cricut using the Plantin School Book cartridge. 'Wonderland' is American Crafts Black Tie velvet alphabet stickers.
The journalling block and snowflakes were also cut on the Cricut using the Storybook and Christmas cartridges.


  1. Gorgeous layout. I might venture out again today as the weather is much better for photos

  2. What a beautiful page for a stunning set of photos Lynn..xxx

  3. What a fantastic LO! Really beautiful x

  4. Well done on getting going with JYC again, I am giving it a miss but doing a daily journal using Ali Edwards templates.
    Glad you are enjoying your leave in winter wonderland!!
