Another Place and Time: Russia, Lake Tahoe

Have you noticed that it's cold outside? Well it's certainly cold here! That might have something to do with the fact that it's winter. No better time to be indoors keeping warm and getting creative with your genealogy!

Today we have a couple of winter kits that may be useful to you for scrapbooking family photos. The first is called Winter in Russia. It was created by Kyra at the With a Russian/Dutch Heart blog. Here's the preview.
This is a personal favorite of mine. I love the colors and the ethnic feel. My Polish grandfather was actually born in what was Russia at the time (the borders changed over time). And really, culture knows no borders. The folk art from Russia is very similar to the folk art from Poland, Slovakia, Lithuania, etc. It all makes for beautiful scrapbook pages! You can download the kit here (just scroll down 10 rows and click on the text below the preview image). Enjoy!

Next up we have a beautiful winter kit with a Lake Tahoe theme. Got any skiing pictures? How about family vacation photos from the Tahoe area? How about dreaming of Tahoe vacation pictures? How about sledding or building a snowman photos? From Jane at the My Scrapping Life blog we have Tahoe on Ice. Here's the preview.This kit has more to it than what you see here. It come in three downloads which you can get here, here, and here. This is a wonderful and versatile kit for all your winter photos. There are a total of 19 backgrounds and loads of elements too! I know you have some winter family photos... get 'em out and play with them!

Now go get creative with your genealogy!
