Scraptastic Saturdays – My Favourite Layout

Early this week I created what is my new favourite layout.  I’m really proud of this one.  It features a photograph that you’ve seen on this blog before…  but that had  a regrettable bit of negative space (specifically a garbage bin and a shovel).  Extracting the wee girlie, the snow, and the snowflakes (and duplicating the snow so that it appears on both sides) made for a much more pleasing image where nothing competes for your attention.  It is the simplest layout I’ve created, but I do think it is the most beautiful as well.  🙂

Wee girlie in the snow, a perfect, magickal moment.

This LO (short for layout) has been awarded LOTD (layout of the day) at Enchanted Studio Scraps and is now up for LOTW (layout of the week).  Wish me luck.  Voting is this weekend.

I used the Magically Pink kit by Sugar Pie Scraps.  It’s a wonderful kit that was just released last week.  It’s available for sale through ESS.  I only used two papers, and two  elements (star and wordart) from it… but I have to admit that I had a hard time limiting myself.  Lots of great stuff in the kit.  🙂

For a special Halloween treat, head on over to ESS and visit the blog.  Every day leading up to the 31st they are giving away part of a huge mega-kit.  All you have to do is visit the blog, and click the image to download…  try to get there every day, and you’ll get the entire kit for free.  🙂

Evergreen

Starting to think that the trees in our front yard may end up becoming a series.  Here’s one that shows off the delicate bit of snow we had today, as well as what had accumulated earlier.

Magick!

All around us exists a world of magick…  and for a small moment I captured it all in my daughters eyes.

To a two and a half year old, everything is new, everything full of wonder.  But perhaps more than any other force of nature, freshly falling snow grabs the imagination in an immensely powerful way.  Having the wee girlie in my life has reopened the doors to the spectacle of sensation.  I’ve always believed in the power that can be found all around us.  The miraculous, yet completely tangible, world we live in.  But seeing all these things through a little girls eyes only gives rebirth to the sense of awe and wonderment.  The truth of being immersed in a perfect moment.

Pure Magick!

Now…  I do regret that she’s standing in front of a garbage pail, but what’s a mom to do.  A perfect moment filled with magick happens where it happens.  Not much I could do about it.  😉
