Winter in Idaho

In January, we took a drive up to visit with friends in Idaho.  The weather report between California and Idaho was favorable, so we just took off.  One of the days we drove up to McCall, Idaho.  It was beautiful looking at the frozen and snow capped scenery.   I took lots of pictures while driving, it was just too cold to get out at every scenic view.   The pictures resulted in a collage using the Cricut Artbooking cartridge for the framing and background.

Our challenge this week at BBTB2, hosted by Mayra, is to use a 'Frame" in our card or project.  I looked over all the possibilities, there are lots of fancy frames to select.  I went with this one with simple frames, it seemed to fit the bill.  I should have went with blue paper, but the green seemed appropriate to go with the trees.  I added a few embellishments with a snowflake, IDAHO from 50 States, and WINTER from Winter Frolic.  The tree is from CampOut.

If you are stuck inside the house due to the cold weather, what better day is it than to craft the day away.  Join our challenge at BBTB2 and link up your FRAME project.


  1. All of your pictures are amazing. What a beautiful area and this layout shows them off so wonderfully. The snowflskes are so pretty!

  2. I've been meaning to try out this page from Artbooking for some vacation pictures-I believe you've inspired me to get a move on and do it! This was a great way to get your scenic pictures scrapped!. I totally agree that a bad weather day is a perfect scrapping day!!!!
