Snow Day

I used the above sketch to make the following LO. I found it off of Ruth's blog- Paper and Musings ( http://paperandmusings.wordpress.com/) that she did for a challenge for The Creative Cutting Challenge, but I misunderstood the challenge so I will have to make something else now for that challenge! LOL! I still have a fun layout! Both pieces of PP are Recollections Bright and Jolly Paper Pad as are the pic mats. I used Studio G glue stick to attach the snowflake PP to the main PP/the mittens paper. The bling strand between the pictures is Studio 18 Rhinestones that I won from Jearise (http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com/) from a blog hop I participated in a while back. The bling on the corners and the 3 at the top are from my stash- lost the original packaging & not sure where I got them, LOL! The title, Snow Day is Sticko Phrase Cafe Let It Snow Stickers With Attitude that I've had for awhile and almost forgot about!
Now for the close-up pics! I used Jim Holtz Crystal Stickles on every snow spot I saw on this LO to make the snow look real!

The ribbon on the tag is Bobbin Ribbon that I bought from Big Lots for $0.75 and I might be good for one more tag with this spool! The tag is Storytellers Club Dad Collection, but it's red, white, and blue like the flag of the USA so it goes perfect with this LO! :) I added "Living in North Carolina, we don't see much snow." using Microsoft Word 2010 in Jokerman font. I adhered it with my Xyron 1.5" Create A Sticker maker. The pictures are actually 2 different snow days- one of our backyard with the snow almost all melted and then one of our driveaway at night with a vehicle we no longer have- a Kia Sportage. It was wrecked and totalled out, but no major injuries involved thank God! I adhered the pictures and the tag with Elmer's Craft Bond Glue Spots. They are just like Glue ZOTS, but a different brand name! The snowman is a part of Snow Much Love, a file that I won from Scrapping With Lisa Designs ( http://scrappingwithlisadesigns.com/) and I added some black bling from my stash and some Crystal Stickles to make it look real.
TFL and come back later for another blog post of some 3 Girl Jam cotton bags that I plan on playing with later! :)

Great job with the sketch! I think the stickled snowfakes really bring a lot of lovely shimmer to your page! I'm so glad you were able to use the sketch and have a great layout to add to your album now!
Have a great day!
