Blanket of Snow

Good morning from a snowy Kent!
Today's post is a bit photo heavy - grab a cuppa!
Woke up yesterday morning to a ...blanket of snow... which brings me neatly onto this scrapbook layout. 
I created this for Spellbinders using their Holly Accents, Poinsettia Creations and Scalloped Circles - all the details are on this link.  I kept it very white and simple to emulate the snow..
This is the first time Bella has seen snow...
 Really puzzled her as to why snow should stick to fur...
 And a confused snowy face!
I mentioned a couple of posts back that I attended the craft event at Bluewater here in Kent, it was really good.  Spread over two floors there was an array of goodies, demos and people to meet.
I caught up with lovely Genevieve Lee who runs The Kraft Shop - she is a stockist of Creative Expressions.  Later this month I will be using their products when I'm on Create and Craft.   
Bookmark the page.. :)
Here are a few shots of the event...
Ribbon, ribbon and more ribbon!
Knitted bunting.
I want a pink one!
and Cath Kidston scrumptiousness! I'm a huge fan of all that flower stuff...
I do have more pictures but I'm guessing your cuppa may have gone cold! 
I will share more tomorrow :)
Have a good Monday dear friends.

Good morning Christine. You must have been in crafty heaven at Bluewater, I know I would have been and my purse quite a lot lighter by the end of the day too. Love the pics you have posted and also of Bella with her first outing in the snow. It is so amusing seeing what they get up to in this cold white stuff - I know with my dog.

Keep warm everyone and have a lovely day.

Love the layout, the picture is lovely, especially the pink in the sky. Bella is just too cute, great photos of her in the snow. Bluewater looked fun - all that ribbon - I have the pink one!! It is great, lovely and lightweight and just right for doing cards.

Your scrapbook page is lovely. It is perfect to capture the essence of the snow. Bella is so cute bless her! I love her confused look. No wonder you enjoyed Bluewater, it looked fab. Have a warm and cosy day xx

Good morning Christine, I love your scrapbook layout, the rule 'less is more' really is true, it looks amazing, you are a very talented lady.
Did you spend, spend,spend at Bluewater, it looks like it was a great event.
Are your going to do a page of poor Bella's first adventure in the snow, I am not totally convinced she enjoyed it.
Stay cosy and warm,
Sandra xx

Hi Christine,
What a lovely memory page and what a lovely picture too. CAS (clean & simple) is such a lovely style and you have used it so well here. Gorgeous. In my minds eye I am seeing Bella hopping along through the field of snow with you chasing along behind her as she darts back and forth to you. Cute little image.
All the best Linda
