Last weekend my husband and I ventured an hour away to the town of Sonoma where the hubby's sister and husban live along with my adorable nephew Calvin. My husband and I have a very close relationship to our other nieces and nephew but due to distance we don't see Calvin as much. We are trying to rectify that by heading to there house every couple of weeks for an overnight and some very much needed Auntie and Uncle time.
The weather was beautiful so we decided a trip to Train Town was in order. Train Town has a built to scale mini train ride along with a few other age appropriate rides. We took my niece Avery with us so that Calvin would have a companion. The kids had a great time and so did Auntie Erin and Uncle Ben!

to feed the brown one "Because he had a look

Zendala Dare #93 - Snowflake Surprise
I mentioned above that I was on a weekend getaway. The hubby and I have joined a few other families at a cabin in the Sierras for lots of food, fun, games, and shenanigans. The snow isn't as great as we would have hoped but at least there is SOME snow. Since it is the first Zendala Dare of the month and I need to give you an added challenge I thought that creating a snowflake might be fun. I have picked a template that I think lends itself to the challenge. Now all you have to do is use it to create a Zendala representative of your vision of a snowflake.
Here's what you have to work with:
My first attempt was a little heavy handed. It looks more industrial that snowflake but, oh well.

My second attempt is closer to what I had in mind. I'm not sure if it is more reminiscent of a snowflake because it's white or because it's more airy, but either way, I like this one more.
|Tangles: Ramy, Betweed, Zinger|
