For Your Inspiration

I 've been lurking around the For Your Inspiration blog for a while, but haven't participated, so I decided to give it a shot today.  I decided to use the brown/green/blue combo and frozen water (a.k.a. snow!)
Here's my layout - these are some pictures of my parents sledding with us this past winter!  Yes, they are 64 years old and having a blast here!  So much fun my daughter decided our back yard (which is a hill) should be renamed the Sled Park.  We liked it!
Here's a closeup of the journaling.  My dad never smiles with his mouth open, because he's lost all of his teeth, so I was just glad to get a smile!
And here's my mom - I just love the sincerity of her smile and her bravery for actually sledding with my daughter!  Mind you, we had to help her a little when she got to the bottom of the hill!  ;)  But she loved every minute of it!
Now, here you may be thinking....what does this have to do with that?  It is scraps from the paper I was using, so I used the same sketch to create a boyish card.  I just finished my beginner Copic certification, so I just had to play a little!
