Snow much fun

Snow may not be such fun for adults........but it certainly is for little people.
This isn't my usual style of layout.......but I love these photos of Little A so much.......the joy and wonder in her face.......her first real experience of snow........playing in the park with her mum......they just had to take centre stage......with little to draw attention away from them.
I love seeing white space on other people's layouts.......but rarely feel confident using it myself.......and I doubt I've ever made a page with no patterned paper at all before.......just a piece of red mesh........a few embellishments......and a journaling card.
I'm really happy with the finished page.....wish I was as happy photographing it.......just couldn't get it clear today.
And I just love the look on her face in this photo.......oh to see the world through the eyes of a child.

I like how you left lots of white space and used off set red mesh to match A's outfit. Great layout.

Your little A is such an adorable little girl anyway, and these photos of her a just precious. What a CUTE layout you've made of her.

That red is so great! It fills the space mentally for me that would normally be filled by pp, if you know what I mean!
Great job.

Sometimes less is more. Your grand daughter looks beautiful in these photos and you have used the white space well.

Oohhh adorable. In a way you didn't need patterned paper, it would detract from such a cutie ... What a lovely layout

Beautiful photographs and great colours. I feel reluctant to use White space too. I am more of a chuck it all on scrapper. Will try more White space next time. Jenx

Love these photos of little A Jacky, she's getting so big. I do like simple layouts and when I scrapbook mine are often just card so this one is right up my street :) xx

She is so cute! Wow, it is suprising to see a layout without pattern paper here, but I quite like this and it shows the photos so well!
