There can be moments of levity and enjoyment in the dead of winter and I have found my limit in terms of winter fun yesterday. I went skiing for the first and last time in my life. If it seems drastic to say "last time," let me amend my statement by saying that should I be given the choice of passing another kidney stone or go skiing, I would gladly go skiing again. The worst part was that I had to miss my favorite group exercise class for it. Every skier who passed by reminded me how I too could have been having fun and burning calories! In the end, (by "end" I mean, 1/3 way through the course) I had to take them off and drag them all the way back. The humiliation was both utter and complete!
Let me remind myself of good times in the snow and cold. I think after today's snow, a sledding event could be in our future soon. These photos were from last year and I did this page in July using the then just released WRMK's "Down the Boardwalk" collection, summer papers for a winter page! This was my first project as a CK Dream Team member. We were asked to do a page of using the "scrapalete" theme. I thought "spinning" would be a good idea even though I've never done it in my life. If I were to guess, I probably wouldn't pronounce against spinning as harshly as I have against skiing!

The horizontal photo show some of the subtle rubons I used on the layout. I should mention that I didn't mist this page at all, but the droplets you see are printed on the patterned papers! I encircled the journaling with another cut from the Silhouette store, only I can't find it for the moment.
Today is also Chinese New Year! Happy prosperous new year of the Snake!!! 灵蛇出洞吐春意；喜鹊登梅报福音!
