Well, I asked for snow. I got the snow. I didnít get a lot, but I really did get some. Theyíre hinting at a White Christmas too. What I didnít bargain for was the ice. Or the resulting snow day. Oh well, itís so pretty outside, looking at all the whiteness. For those in the path of ďDracoĒ, be safe! Itís a very windy storm. Itís also a very cold storm!

This week, I decided to dip into the ďBuffet ChallengeĒ layouts. There are some amazingly beautiful layouts there!

Created by Victoria32. I love that the focus is on the pictures. Plus, as someone obsessed with nutcrackers, I love that nutcracker!

Created by Joy2Scrapbook. I love lights, and these pictures are just amazing! The paper choices work SO well with it all!
