colder weather

colder weather layout! (the shards along the edges of the torn paper behind the photo are Silver Glitter Shard Glass by ReneaBouquets, but I took the photo with no flash so there wouldn’t be glare off the shards or the metallic words at the top!)

Over at, Amanda (scrapanda) hosts the Music Inspiration Challenge! For September I was given the song “Colder Weather” by the Zac Brown Band (lyrics link; video link), and this is what I came up with!

Way back when… (bet. 2002-2007) I lived in Michigan. This is a photo looking out our back door towards the dilapidated old barn that was on the property. I love the snow. I miss the snow. I don’t necessarily miss being cold 😄, but I have always found snow to be beautiful.

In addition to the Music Inspiration Challenge, I am also entering this in the October 1st, Stuck?! Sketches Challenge, using the following sketch as inspiration!

As you can see, I rotated the sketch 90°, and instead of rings and splatters, I used snowflakes from two Simon Says Stamps sets, “Frozen Fractals” and “Swell Christmas.”
