Say Cheese

 I just recently developed this picture and thought I'd never find paper to put it on. I remembered that I bought this paper- The Paper Studio Cameras w/ Floral- recently from Hobby Lobby and thought it fit! I decided to go with Say Cheese as the title, because the picture was basically a snapshot. The title is actually a journaling block, but can be used as both. The title and the photo mat are both from Colorbok 12" Paper Signature Hopscotch and the journaling mat is from Prima Marketing Moulin Rouge 6" x 6" paper stack. The journaling states that the picture is of Jenn and I after the first day of Stamp and Scrapbook Expo at Mesa, AZ. Jenn is Laura's cousin and was willing to hang out with me for a little bit when I arrived to AZ and while I was waiting on Laura.

I wanted to keep this layout as simple as possible since the paper is busy enough. TFL!

Now on to my project. I decided to do a layout of snow pictures. The patterned paper is from Pebbles Home For Christmas Patterned Paper Pad. The snowflake ribbon/border and photo mats are RAKs. I also added 2 snowflakes from the ribbon at the end of my title- Snowpocalypse. We don't see much snow here in NC so the town pretty much shuts down so that's why I call it Snowpocalypse. I used the Chiller font on Word on the biggest size font to type my title. The snowman stamp is from my stash- I think it is from Unity Stamp Company, but I can't find it on their website. I colored it in with NPW 50/50 Two-Tone Colored Pencils and Gelly Roll Metallic Pen. I used Versa Fine Onyx Black Pigment Ink to stamp it. I typed my journaling on my computer again and it states that this is about 6 inches of snow in our front and back yards that fell during the early hours of January 4, 2018. It was too cold to make a snowman so I decided to add a snowman stamp.

I'm the last stop on this hop. I hope you enjoyed my CAS (Clean And Simple) layout!
