Funday Monday Challenge and a Blog Hop Winner!

Funday Monday is in full swing at CSD! Those of you familiar with the challenge from MAF will be happy to know I've moved it over to Creative Scrapbooking Divas!  This month, there are two Funday Monday challenges and an RAK for one lucky person who submits to both challenges. This week we are focusing on Winter.
I know many of you have had some ferocious winter weather this year - either piles of snow, or frozen crops. Are you documenting your winter in photos? For the Funday Monday challenge, show me how you are spending your winter - show me your snowmen, your favorite fuzzy sweaters, your steaming bowls of hot soup or your ski trips. It's a Winter Wonderland!
For my page, I documented last year's New Year's Day trip up the fabulous Mt. Fuji in Japan. I live quite close to Fuji though my daily view is blocked by the Tanzawa mountain range. Either mountain view is breathtaking to me, but driving up the majestic Fuji was such an awesome way to begin the New Year. It was really not that chilly, though there was snow. It was the first time I had seen snow in many years as we don't get much snow in our area.
This was the perfect chance for me to use some snowflake embellies I had gathered! The title is made with Heidi Swapp Ghost letters, backed with foil paper and sprayed with Glimmer Mist. I really like the effect I got.
I know you have a couple of tricks up your scrappy sleeves, so show me your winter photos- post them at the Funday Monday Challenge at CSDivas for your chance at an RAK. 
Now let's get on to the winner of CSDivas' Blog Hop. My challenge was to create a slider on your LO. If you missed the hop but still want to give it a try, the tutorial is posted below. Meanwhile, help me in congratulating PaperDiva on her fun page - Gettin' My Choo Choo On! That little train makes the perfect sliding element, don't you agree?
