Thank you, snow much

We are having some unexpected snow today, and it was hard to photograph this layout. The glitter on the snowflakes sparkle in real life. I just love the Cosmo Lil Man papers, they are so beautiful. They look just like fabric, it's amazing!

Snow Layout
Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Lil Man Patterned Paper Dapper Dan; plus American Crafts rainboots thickers, black pen and KI glitter snowflakes.
Instructions: It looks simple, but not exactly. First print journaling via computer on patterned paper. Print photos on photo paper, trim sides of large photo, then use exacto knife to cut out the remaining side and the two smaller photos. Adhere photos, title stickers and embellishments as seen. Using a ruler and a pen, draw line on photo and background patterned paper.
I'm still sick, the cold is lingering. My voice is all raspy and weird. I hate NyQuil. I mean, it's good for a cold but it doesn't taste like cherry. Never was, isn't and never will be cherry, Yuck! I think the FDA should make them take the "cherry favored" off the label. I'm just saying. 
J seems much better. He ran a high fever for about a day, and that's it. Still, I think this is a snow day that we will sit out. We had so much fun that one day in the photo, love snow pictures.
Thank you to everyone who posted on the POTD thread yesterday at 2 peas. I saw you all, and it really made my day. It was like my birthday all over again. Thank you so much. Have a great day everyone!
PS The new Cosmo blog is having a giveaway later today, check it out!

Great layout, love the black lines... that Cosmo paper is great! Have you tried the NyQuil gelcaps, I can't swallow the cherry stuff either... yuck, let's petition the FDA! Hope you feel better, I always enjoy seeing your creations in the galleries.

Sorry you are feeling under the weather! I don't know about you, but NyQuil knocks me out! Love the layout--the new CC is just fab!

Lemon and honey - that's what my mom used to give us for a throat like yours. Folk medicine, I'm sure, but as kids we thought it was the end all be all of soar throat cures! Love the layout, and I can imagine the sparkles on the snow flakes!

Love your layout! (and you're so right; it doesn't taste like cherry at all) Hope you feel better soon.

Beautiful page today!
I hear you on the cherry Nyquil...more like cherry flavored Sambuca...not a good combo!
That's why they invented Nyquil in pill form! lol
Feel better soon!

P.S. Thanks for the nice shout-out about the "almost" Simple Gal gig, you are awesome :)
