Happy Sunday folks!
Hope your weekend is going well and you all got some crafting done or spent some quality time with your families!
We've had a bit of a break at Doodle Dragon studios over the Christmas vacation time but are now back in the swing of things. This weeks challenge is to make something with the "Winter" theme. I opted to make a small scrapbook of our winter vacation up to North Carolina. It was my son's first experience with snow, so for us to see a good 8" of the fluffy white stuff awaiting our arrival we were delighted! I was so excited to see my son's reaction and he didn't disappoint at all and spent a good four days playing in it, having snowball fights, and building snowmen! As this was such a special time I wanted to make it memorable for him with his own scrapbook so he can see his photos of the snow whenever he wants to. As space was limited on our trip I took only a few supplies up to the cabin with me. With only a few pencils, stickles and embellishments my creativity was limited too but I really enjoyed making this album for him. I actually used three of Dustin's images, two snowmen and the "Let it Snow" image for the inside cover. I colored them in with my prismacolored pencils then added lots of stickles in Diamond color, candy cane and light blue. The sparkle on the snowmen in real life is amazing....I love the Diamond stickles so much.  
This is the inside cover with more snow people and lots of snowflakes! Lastly, I have few photos to share of our winter trip and of course my son's super cute snowman for you all to see!
the roads after a few days....still slippery!

the first snowman...complete with spiky hair!

Have a wonderful week and see you real soon!
