Today, I'm sharing a layout that was submitted at Paper Secrets http://www.papersecrets.net/
for their November Sketch Challenge.
Here's the sketch:
And here's what I created:
Dog sledding with my father in law (Aug. 1995). Man, was this fun! Hard work, but so fun!
In the top photo I decided to sit in the sled and ride that way. Not so fun and I got so
cold. The bottom photo shows the dogs all hitched up, waiting to RUN! My father in law
had the large team of 10 dogs while I had all I could handle with 6 dogs.
Oh yes, I had many falls. The first time dog sledding I fell off the sled, got dragged by
the dogs and sled and ended up hardly able to move the next day. I was literally sore from
the bottoms of my feet to my neck! Great way to get a workout. :)
Once I figured out how to "stay on the sled" everything else was a piece of cake.
Many days I would take time off from work, anxious for some stress-reliever, and we would
ride the snowmobile trails all day. The most peaceful experience ever! I love it!
I heard nothing but the dog's paws running on the crispy snow. Just hold on and
enjoy the scenery.
Fabric & Glitter Snowflake
Got a package of these fabric snowflakes at a discount store. You just never know
what you will find at any store. :)
I hand cut the banners the size I wanted, adhere them around the twine and distressed
the edges. I left a looped knot on each end.
A closer look at the banner and distressing.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
