Winter Walk

My older daughter on January 2, 2011 - almost a year ago :)
I used a fab kit from Designs by Helly, called Frost ~ available at Scrapbook Bytes.

The Badlands

A photo of my best friend, taken in the North Dakota Badlands when we took a little roadtrip in May 1991 while we were still in college.  We drove from Fargo ND to Theodore Roosevelt National Park - and it was so much fun.  Driving through North Dakota was the first time in my life I had seen so much flat land LOL  It was beautiful, but coming from mountainous Iceland, I just hadn't experienced before, standing on the road and not seeing even a hill (or a bump in the road LOL) in any direction :)
I used Dawn Inskip's amazing new Dreamcatcher Collection and a template from Dawn's Make Believe Collection ~ both at Scrapbook Graphics.
