I did hear on the weather forcast that they were expecting snow, but I didn't really take it too seriously. We hardly ever get decent snow. So I was very surprised when I got up on Monday morning and found a good 3 inches or so blanketing the ground and everything else for that matter. I had great fun trying to get decent photos of Connor, and in the end enlisted my Mum to help me out. I got some lovely ones though. Here are a selection of them and I'm sure you'll see them on LOs pretty soon.

Anyway, the snow has brought chaos across the country. We just can't handle snow, however much warning there is. Trains have been going nowhere, the airports are closed, offices are empty and schools are closed. I'm not complaining about that, don't get me wrong :) I had today off work (paid) and managed to get my first CJ of the year underway. It's Kathb's 'Big Cats' all your own photos CJ and I had a lovely photo of a Tiger to work with.

I'm going through a definition phase it would seem. I created a LO using the 'Connor' part of our baby name book and now this one with the tiger definition. On the other side, I tried to keep it fairly simple to make sure the focus remained with the fabulous photo, and just included William Blake's poem 'The Tiger'. I'm still not sure about scrapping in 8x8, but think I will get the hang of it and don't think I've done a bad job with this one either.
