Weather and Wonders ...

WOWWY~! It's darn cold out there~! Our weather has plummeted and we had a blizzard yesterday that was wicked!





You know, I know I shouldn't be complaining. I DO live in Canada and this winter hasn't been that bad so far. But man, when it arrives, it arrives~! LOL The blizzard didn't actually last too long but the temperatures have stayed below normal. Right now it is -19 celcius and going down to -23. Brrr ...

But tonight was an amazing site. Even before the sun when down the moon was in the sky and HUGE.



And tomorrow night is supposed to be 'real' full moon so I'm hoping the sky is clear like it was tonight.

When I first started digital scrapbooking the thing that I was most 'intrigued' by was overlays. I just thought it was such a great idea because you use them over which ever paper you want, plus you could put your picture underneath them if you want. They do make a page interesting. I have no idea why I haven't been making alot of them, but I'm on a roll now so watch out~!! lol

These are the new ones I put into LLL Creations Dollar Mart today;

Family Overlays



And here they are shown against 12x12 inch papers.
(Click on any picture to see closer view)









You get the 4 family overlays for only $1.00 and you can get them here or just go through LLL Creations Dollar Mart under the Overlays category.

And also ...

Friends Overlays



And here they are shown against 12x12 inch papers.
(Again click on any picture to see closer view)









You get 4 Friends overlays for only $1.00 and you can get them here or just go through LLL Creations Dollar Mart under the Overlays category.

It really is amazing how overlays look so different when you change the paper underneath ... so experiment and try different things.

ONLY 2 Days left to get the FREE 2010 Date Stamps~! See details here.

And today I have some papers that I made just for fun (and used to show the overlays above)... some of these are pictures of the sky from my own backyard~! You are getting 12 papers~! I hope you like them!

I heartily agree with that last sentiment! I have been doing computer design for almost 10 years, but I haven't gotten into digiscrap design yet- that being said, I KNOW how many hours of intensive MINUTIA go into every little piece of your work. Thanks for all you do and keep up the good work! You ARE appreciated!

Thanks for the amazing pics Lil - I wish we experienced snow like that. It looks amazing. But on the bright side, we're just back from taking bub on her first beach holiday which she loooved. Thanks for the awesome papers - you are so generous! If I had my way, my house would have climbing frames all over for the cats, but I think that'd push hubbies patience just one step too far :)

The papers are breathtaking. Your photos are great too, and would make good papers - hint - hint. Thank you for sharing your talent with us. We are having our first significant snowfall in several years along with ice on top here in middle Tennessee!

Thank you. These scenic papers are great! I have to admit here in Michigan we are having lovely weather for this time of year. We live in Dearborn so we aren't to far from the Windsor bridge or the Toledo, Ohio area. One snowfall where the snowblower had to come out. The past few days have been a little cold but for the most part it has been great.
