Coincidentally, while we were enjoying the gorgeous Christmas Day snowfall yesterday, I was digging into my stash for this layout about our unusually cold December. After my parents had gone home and the dishes were done (finally!), I got in some scrapping time. Two unexpected treats for the holiday!
- The layout is based on Artfuldelight's monthly challenge
( December Sketch Challenge at Artfuldelight.blogspot.com ). For the shaped background, I did two Cricut cuts. The second one in the lighter teal accidentally came out the same size as the first so I decreased the size and moved the cutting blade in and down just a tad - maybe a quarter of an inch - and cut again. I got a perfect frame! Just lucky on that one.
- Rhinestones in the center of snowflakes add a special zing.
- Also, vellum seems to really go with snow/cold themes, too.
Now that I have dozens of wonderful Christmas snow photos, I'll have to do another snowy layout for my very first white Christmas!
Thanks for visiting today. Enjoy your holiday week.
