Winter Wonderland Blog Hop

Welcome to the Winter Wonderland Blog Hop! I'm the last stop on the hop. If you have came from Gina's blog, you're in the right place. If not, please start back at Audrey's blog.
Here's the hop list just in case you need a refresher:

 Now that all that is out of the way I can't wait to share my 3D layout with you! Our challenge was to create a 3 Dimensional Project with the colors White, Blue, and Gray/Silver and to make it wintery. I chose to do a layout with snow pictures! The paper is K&Company Blue and I added a border on both sides from Fiskars Heidi Grace Designs A Little Bird's Tale and I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the edges to fit with the snow theme of my layout. The top pic mat is Recollections Bright & Jolly Paper Pad. The title "Let It Snow" is stickers out of a collection from my stash as is the snowflake, the journaling square, and the snowflake in between the pics. The ribbon is EK Success Blue Metallic Adornments Fun Fibers- there's 5 different fiber strands in the box and I've already used up one & there's not much of this strand left. The pic mat under the mail box picture is Martha Stewart Punch Pad, and the pic mat under the bottom pic of the back of the house is Creative Memories. The bling in the corners is Studio 18 Rhinestones given to me by Jearise (http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com/) along with the brad on the journaling tag. I'll mention the brad manufacturer later down below the close-up pic. I used Recollections Adhesive Foam Squares to make my elements stand out and give some dimension. I always love taking pictures of the snow in the yard whenever we get snow, because we don't see snow very often here in eastern NC!
Here are some close-ups of the snowflake and the snowman. I used Crystal, Silver, and Waterfall Stickles to add sparkle to both and to make them look real! The snowman is a digi from Scrappin with Lisa Designs (http://scrappingwithlisadesigns.com/)- Snow Much Love.
I decided to add Silver Stickles to this snowflake embellie to give it some sparkle as well.
The tag was given to me by Niki and the brad is KI Memories Paisley Parade Epoxy Fasteners- from Jearise as I mentioned before. Niki gave me a "Go Green" Food Lion bag full of scrapbook paper and supplies when I worked with her mom at TJ Maxx, because she was going to stop scrapbooking altogether, but she has since decided to get back into it! I wrote "Christmas 2004 all of our mail boxes in the cul-de-sac had these bows on them" with my American Crafts Basics Blue gel pen and the word "them" is American Crafts Candy Shoppe Blue gel pen.
          Here's a close-up of the scripture vellum that I thought fit perfectly with these pictures. This was out of a vellum pack that the cover has been torn off that a friend from church gave me as a RAK.
Thank you so much for joining me on this blog hop and please leave me a comment. I would love if you become a follower if you aren't already! TFL and have a great day!
