Winter has hit again!

The last few weeks have been pretty warm, giving us a little taste of Spring. But over the weekend, we were hit with a wet, heavy snowstorm.

Last night, Kevin and I woke up to a startling *THUD!* We ran around checking the house to make sure we were safe. We couldn't figure out where the big crash had come from!

Then we looked out in the backyard. The snow was so heavy that it broke one of the trees in half. When it fell it whacked the corner of the roof, making the huge sound that woke us up. The roof is fine. But I sure hope those trees hang in there! Some of the littler ones are bent over touching the ground!

Here's a new So Sketchy! layout for you!
Supplies: Patterned Paper & Letter Stickers: Rusty Pickle; Die Cut Paper: Creative Imaginations; Rubons: Daisy D's; Journal Spot: Scenic Route; Flowers: Bazzill; Other: Ric Rac & buttons

Also, there is a new challenge up at Noel Mignon today! The Off the Bookshelf challenge! This was SUCH A FUN ONE!!! I hope you will come and play along! This challenge runs until 2/9/2009 and a random winner will be drawn at the end to receive a $15 gift card to Noel's shop. Hope to see you there!

The first sneak for Noel's next kit is up on the Message Board! :D :D :D Looooookin' Gooooood!!! I LOVE these colors! Can't wait to get this baby in my hands! :D
