The PaperHaus Magazine winter issue nbr 5 - my layout "Snow Fun" - page 5

Friday, glorious Friday! so glad the weekend is upon us. The first week after a rather long bank holiday is always a tough one. I'm hungry at funny hours and want to take a nap when it's the busiest in the afternoon. Ha ha! I sound like an old lady needing fixed meal hours!

I've come to my 4th and second last page published in The PaperHaus Magazine's winter issue nbr 5. Thank you for your patience when I'm ranting about this incredible spell of luck that rocked my world.

The layout I'm sharing today is called "Snow Fun" and I originally planned it around the Dreamsketch, but as it so often happens, it morphed in other directions and turned out different. It is one of my faves from the winter issue. So much fun to create this lumpy bumpy page full of the stuff that I seriously love!

I was stunned beyond belief to se it under the Editor's section on "Noteworthy" on page 5.

The photos of children playing in the snow some 
60 years ago, doing exactly what children do today, 
inspired me to make a page 
full of snow texture and a vintage tattered feel. 
Having fun in the snow is what it’s all about!

I found the photos in our city archives.
