The 1/2 mile lane to our house is mostly uphill. We don't think about it much, until we get snow/ice/freezing rain, or have to walk up it. After being iced-in since Sunday, we had to get out for doctor appt. and groceries.
Journaling: I wish I’d taken pictures the day before when we spent an hour and a half trying to get up the hill to our house, but I was kind of upset. I took these pics the day after in Ron’s 4-wheel drive pickup without problems. The large middle photo is about 1/3 the way up where we lost momentum and had to back down to the bottom, once getting sideways. After 3 attempts, I walked the half mile up to the house to get the tractor with the box blade to clear what we could.
On the 4th attempt, Ron did the driving. He backed all the way down again and across the road a ways to the neighbors drive to turn around, and then floored it, hoping to not meet any oncoming cars, which he did, but they slowed down enough. When he hit the gravel he left his seat, but he made it, my front wheel drive Venza no worse for the wear, but the ice cream got soft.
I started with P7 of the Foto Inspired Template Pack 3A, clipping my photos and papers or artsy kardz to the masks. I placed KardStock Winter 1-9 below the template along with transfers and overlays. Above the template layers I added textures, Magic Snow Spray, MultiMedia Branch, (adjusting the hue of the button), button threadz, text boxes, comments with the Labeled papers below and the title.
