Winter Fun and Frolic Challenge by Susan Tutt

When I moved to Canada from California, 17 years ago, I really had no idea what winter was all about! I have to admit I wasn't impressed with -20 degree weather, but over the years I have learned to tollerate the winter. Since having kids I have experienced the fun side of winter, sledding, ice hockey, snowball fights and building snowmen, but drinking hot chocolate is still the best part of winter for me! This weeks challenge is winter fun and frolic. I have created two layouts that capture our winter fun.
Last winter we discovered a frozen pond in our neighborhood that was cleared for skating and hockey! My kids were thrilled, especially my hockey crazed son.

One of our winter traditions is to go sledding. I love capturing the exhilarated faces of my kids as they come down the snow hill.

It snowed again last night in Calgary, so we will be off sledding this weekend. Yay for hot chocolate!! Have a great weekend and remember to submit your challenge layout I would love to see your winter fun!


  1. i love those big bold snowflakes you used on the 2nd layout ... how fun are they!!! Lovely work as always Susan ... you are inspiring me!

  2. I love the way you used the snowflakes too! So fun! I can't imagine coming from California to real Canadian winters...I find myself fantasizing about doing the opposite! :) Such great photos - looks like so much fun. So wonderful to document it all! Thanks for sharing!
