Snow still here - just!

Well having missed the best of the snow by being away for the weekend, Alex and I have been making up for it by having snowball fights on the way to school, although the snow yesterday morning was a little too hard for that game! He loved running down the paths to school though as you can see.  The snow is still here this morning, although the roads are now completely clear, however, I expect it will be gone by this evening.
As it is Wednesday it is time to show you my desk as part of WOYWW. Today it is in the midst of a scrapbooking session so you can see the papers I decided not to use on the lefthand side, the layout slowly coming together in the middle with some potential stamps for use on it in the background, as well as ink pads, a pencil for marking up the layout and my trusty mug of tea.
Here is the completed layout about celebrating my 10th Wedding Anniversary last year, which follows the sketch from this weeks Lasting Memories.  As it also includes a digital element (the journalling and black heart were done on a computer) it fits with the rest of their challenge. Apologies for the dodgy photo...artificial light really doesn't do the colours justice. As the flowers are a mixture of pink and red (all right, there is only a little pink on this layout, but it is there I promise!) I am also entering it into CCC 'pink & red' and DCM 'pink & red' challenges, as well as the Stamp with fun 'Love', PTW 'Anything goes + a heart', Aud Sentiments 'Anything but a card + a sentiment' (Together forever), Delightful challenges 'punches and dies' (a Martha stewart fern frond punch and Cuttlebug hearts die),  Delicious Doodles 'All loved up' and SSDS 'Die cut or punches'. That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone.
Love,
Caro

Thank you for your visit yesterday, Caro. I love the look of that long snowy path today. We have a grassy island in front of our house, and it has been great to see all the children out there in the snow and we now have seven huge snowmen sitting firmly on the now green grass. I look forward to seeing your completed layout soon. xx Maggie #91

loved the picture of your son on the path. We only had huge dumps of snow that stayed a few times when i was a kid. I still remember playing in the them like it was yesterday.

I hope he keeps his snow memories of your walks to school on that path.
