It's A Snowpocalypse

We've had so much snow here in New Jersey that I had to scrap about it. It has snowed every week since the day after Christmas. I'm so sick of snow, I don't know what to do with myself. Our last snow storm left behind a hefty 19" on top of ton of snow already on the ground AND today it's sleeting and the promise of more snow is looming!!

Driving has become a nuisance, not just because of the icy roads, but all of the snow that has been plowed to the side of the road has drastically narrowed streets, sidewalks have all but disappeared causing pedestrians have to walk in street. When I pull up to an intersection, I'm darn near in the middle of the street before I can see around the snow banks. Don't even try to go to the store because the enormous mountains of snow all over the parking lot have reduced parking spaces by 1/3, making them a hot commodity. As soon as I get in your car to pull out of a space and I can't help but laugh at the parking space piranha that a swarming around me.

I guess my Cheery Lynn Designs dies will be getting quite a workout. With all of this snow on the ground the only thing a girl is left to do is scrap.

I used a couple of CLD's new dies, Wittle Weaver and Large Circle Pierce Plate, on this layout to help add some texture.

Here you can see the texture that the piercing plate adds to the scalloped circle. How cute is that pierced snowman? He was really easy to pierce together. I simply cut small scraps of paper and taped them to the section of the die that I wanted. This way, I only had to run the die through my Epic Six once.

I used the Wittle Weaver to cut strips from striped paper to bring all of the colors in my layout together. I love the deep set texture this die adds.

For a complete list of the dies used on this layout, check out this post Cheery Lynn Designs blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope you are warm in your part of the world! Have a scrappy day!
