My little wish came true... and another "RAK-game"!

...we woke up to a winter wonderland this morning. Well, ok... you could still tell that the grass underneath the snow was green :), but snow is snow an it's looked really pretty when I looked outside at 7.10 am. It was still dark and I just hoped it would last at least till it was so light outside that I could take some pictures. And it did!
I was almost sorry I had a crop this morning and I didn't have the oppertunity to take my car and drive into the province to take some pictures. Half way the moring it started snowing again but I think the temperature was over 0*C already then because when the ladies left the white from the trees had already gone. And then the fog came, and it got really cold and wet and not so nice outside. So much for winter already??? Aperently it's going to 8*C on friday again :(
So, unfortunatly no pictures of kids playing in the snow yet.
Lennart came home from school sick at about 10.00 a.m. and didn't go outside for the rest of the day and when Marlijn and Anne came home most of the snow was already gone.

The view from Anne's balcony very early this morning.

The same shot about an hour later.

I realy, realy hope we have lots more snow soon!!!
Well... no more bingo words today, will miss that :)
So I thought about giving away another RAK!

BUT...this time you really have to do something for it!!!
If you want to participate you make a LO using this sketch.
You're free to choose any subject or materials you want to use.

You e-mail me a picture of your LO before the 6th of february, wich means you have almost 12 days to finish it. My good friend Anita Mundt will be the independent judge. She will judge your LO's on creativity, originality and use of product. I won't give her any names untill she's made her decision.

There will be 2 surprizes to give away! I hope you all join the fun!

You can e-mail your LO to
Good luck and have fun!

Hoi Birgit,

geweldig die sneeuw, maar hier in Emmen was het alleen koud en een mooi dun laagje, net als laatst...
Ik zal zeker nadenken over de RAK! De sketch spreekt me erg aan...
Je ziet 'm vanzelf verschijnen!

groetjes vanuit het winterkoude Emmen, Miranda
