Snow Fort

Well the last few days have been freezing. The thermometer on the van driving to work the last two mornings has read -22 degrees celsius....now that is cold!!! So what better time to share a snow layout!


This picture is from Winter 1991 with our three children in a snow fort that we built as a family. Aren't they adorable?

Here are some closeups. I added some Me & My Big Ideas and Recollections bling to the snowflakes.


And some Art-C metal sticker snowflakes add to the dimension. All of the papers are Bo Bunny- Altitude. I fussy cut around some of the snowflakes and other pieces to layer things up.


I dug through my stash for these Making Memories shimmer alpha that matched the colours perfectly.


I used my Tim Holtz Tiny Tacker to add the Maya Road Metal Trinket snowflake to the top corner.


I used the Let's Get Sketchy - Week 2 sketch for my layout.
UPDATE - This layout was chosen as the Let's Get Sketch - Week 2 Fav!! Woo Hoo!!


And the ScrapMuch? Colour Challenge for my colour choices.


I was also inspired by The Paper Girls Challenge #71 - Sparkle & Shine
and Red Carpet Studios Challenge #85 and the challenge is to use something new (The Bo-Bunny paper line) and stars.

Thanks for stopping and stay warm!
