Wow! I can't believe Thanksgiving is this week - at least in the US. Where has the time gone?!? Before you know it, it will be Christmas. Ack! Amber brought The Paper Girls a great challenge to bring us into the season - create a project that is winter or Christmas themed.
I recently started following Scrapbook.com's challenges to go along with their monthly kits. Though I didn't use the kit for my layout, I did use one of their October sketches to make my page. Here is the sketch:
And here is my take on the sketch:
These pictures are my son, taken when we lived in Montana in 2008. (As you can tell, I don't scrap in order.) I just loved the look on his face as he was trudging through the snow.
Crate Paper's Peppermint works perfect for my winter layouts. I also used some Kiwi Lane Design templates to help determine the size circles I wanted to use, and cut the curve and black dotted acetate stripe in the middle of the page. I admit to using some Lifestyle Nesting dies to actually cut the circles. There is NO way I can cut a "straight" circle. Once I knew the circle size I wanted, I then cut snowflakes from the Winter Lace Cricut cartridge using some silver metallic paper. Some miscellaneous Studio Calico embellishments & brads from my stash to completed the layout.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
