Holiday Preparations


     May your Season be special with God's choicest blessings. Love from Alaska.
Karen


     Bonnie at PDPA (Pixel Dust) asked us to take a "snap" of holiday preparations. The original photo was taken of my computer monitor with my iPhone4; no way to capture the image. The snowflake is part of the Jacquie Lawson London Advent Calendar activities, Day 7, when we were able to build several snowflakes. This is me "playing!" Guess I had to revert for a while... albeit, a bit crude. 


     Final outcome of the snowflake and layer capture.

I love making snowflakes - that's a nice one! What a beautiful snowscape at the top of your post!

Bonnie said...

How creative Karen! Wonder how you could transfer it to something tangible and hang it on your tree. Looks pretty cold up there!
Thank you for the many ways you contribute to Photo Art Friday Karen. Much appreciated.

Merry Christmas to you and yours! I'm visiting via The Creative Connection; I saw 'Kenai' and had to visit as I've family in Kenai.
Your photography is lovely; you've got a great eye and I adore Jacquie Lawson's work and site.
God's blessings upon you, yours and the work of your hands and heart.

P. S. It's warmer in Kenai this morning than on the farm! It's about 20 here and it's 8:13 a.m.
