It's like shoveling snow...

 ...during a blizzard.

One of us is cleaning and one is making more and more of a mess.

This may be my favorite layout so far this year.  Originally I was just going to share what we did on those confining January days.  I resorted to some extra cleaning partially due to boredom but mostly because I had some congestion and thought dust might be a factor.  It wasn't.  Anyway, I was glad I got in a little extra cleaning.

When I started looking at the photos, I couldn't help but notice the contrast of these photos taken on the same day.  I'm uncharacteristically cleaning.  Lenny was and continues to be especially busy this year in his business so his work area just keeps piling up with more and more projects.  I don't even try to clean his work area.  I wouldn't know what was trash and what was treasure!

For the layout, I used Jillibean Soup's Macho Nacho collection as the colors were perfect matches to the photos.  Some Stampin' Up! snowflake stamps and a snowflake punch helped with the embellishments.

There was one bland area in the layout above the photo of my husband so I cut some circles and layered them in a tone-on-tone look to fill the space.

Thanks for visiting today!
