Winter Scrapbook Borders – Part 1 of 3

Hello!  Today I’m sharing a few borders to help get you in a snowy winter mood.  As always, I’m hoping for a white Christmas this year.  I just love a wintery scene of snow covered hills and trees.  And a fresh snowfall can even make a city seem magical at this time of year.  My borders below will be perfect for your winter photos.
