Well living here is Texas the weather is almost always HOT except the last few days we have all been freezing!  An Arctic Blast showed its ugly head and we have had 2-4" of solid ice!  The temperatures have stayed below freezing for days!  At my home our garage is slightly downhill so it was impossible to get our cars out until Sunday afternoon!  We manage to take the shovel and scrap the driveway so we could get out.  We were so tired of being stuck in the house for three days!  We are still having difficulty driving especially on the overpasses!  But it seems to be getting better for the temperature is up to the 40's but dropping into the 20's at night.  By Friday, things should be back to normal.  LOL

I took this photo of my house and a close up of the trees.  Yes....we have had three large branches to fall off of our large tree in the front yard due to the weight of the ice.  I wanted this layout to look frosty.  It really looks better in person!  I distressed, inked, modeling paste, added glass bead gel, sprays, etc. etc.

I added flowers, leaves, which I added stickles, white lace,  plus I tore silver paper around the photo and added blue ink.

On this you can see the modeling paste and then spraying  with a mist which gives it a blue silvery look and makes the glass bead gels shimmer.  Again...you can see the details better in person.

I painted the snowflakes and then added blue glitter and a center.  If you look near the snowflake on your left you can see the glass bead gel better.
