Twisted Tuesday Challenge #69-Look! Up in the Sky!!

Hey Everyone!

The folks over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges have yet another awesome challenge up and running!  This fortnight the theme is:  Look!  Up in the Sky!

The Challenge:  Represent the sky in your creation
The Twist:  See somethings that flies in the sky in your creation.

Here is my take:
felt frame and clouds: Fancy Pants; Twine: Sew Easy; Journey journal tag: Maya Road; Text stamp: Hero Arts; Cloud Embossing folder: Darice; Rub on letters: Making Memories; patterned paper: WeR Memory Keepers; plane stamp: Prickly Pear, special delivery stamp: Inkadinkado

 I based is off of this Sketch#108 over at Sketchabilities

I double embossed a peice of white cardstock.  First with white embossing powder and a text stamp and then with a cloud embossing folder.  I then used Distress ink to add the blue shades and make the clouds pop.

In my neck of the woods the groundhog with the authority on winter duration is Wiarton Willie.  His prediction this weekend was that an early spring is only in our dreams!  6 more weeks of winter!  Yikes!  At least we know how to make the most of this weather in my family...it's a necessity!  This weekend we did just that-a family ski trip!  It was a first on many levels for my little family: C3 went on her first drop off (no parents allowed) activity (ski lessons), we headed to a ski resort we had never been to before (even though it's relatively close!), we were accompanied with friends and their family and shared accommodations for 2 nights.  All of this resulted in LOADS OF AWESOME FUN!!  I feel really blessed to have spent some quality time with family and friends!  Here's to more!

C3 loving skiing with daddy!  Love that smile!
