LMCB #68 - "Winter Wonderland & Use Snowflakes" ... and a PRIZE!!!

Baby it's COLD outside!!  It has been cold enough to snow around here for that last 2 weeks... but no moisture in the air.  So just low temps, dry lips and frizzy hair!! ;-)  But I do have a layout to share with you for the newest Lasting Memories Layout Challenge #68.  This week's theme is "Winter Wonderland" and most importantly... we want to see those SNOWFLAKES!!

This is the first snowfall for us last year.  It happened right before Thanksgiving.  We only got about 3 1/2" total... but enough for the kids to get excited both at night and early the next morning!

AND... for this week's LMCB #68 challenge... there is a PRIZE to give away!  By little ol' me!!  So you must play with us this week!!  Two 6 x 6 mini decks of patterned paper from
"My Minds Eye" and "Cosmo Cricket."
You can enter as many times as you want.  If you submit 3 layouts, that is 3 chances to win!!  So get scrappin' and visit the wonderful Design Team and their creations to get your creative juices flowing!!  You have until Saturday, 12/17 @ 9pm EST to link up.

I am also entering my layout in the 1st of 3 sketches for the month of December over at Sketches in Thyme Thursday Takes #62.  I always enjoy their sketches.  And here is that sketch...
2 of my photos are horizontal, so I varied the sketch a bit to stretch across the page and to drop my journaling down below.

And... I am submitting this layout to the The Paper Variety's  anything goes challenge!!  It's their last challenge of the year.  So they are going out with a bang.  They will back in January with fun things to share.

Hope you can settle down from the hustle and bustle of the Holidays and join us this week... especially since I am helping Santa out a little early and giving away a prize!  Have a great week and see you soon!!

Supplies:
DSP and Embellies are all from Basic Grey "Nordic Holiday"
Letter stickers are from Reminisce and Stickopotamus
Cardstock is from Stampin' Up - Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, Basic Black & Whisper White
Scalloped dotted ribbon from Stampin' Up
