First Snow Day in 2012

I received my January Paperie kit over the weekend and as always could not wait to get to use the Little Yellow Bicycle (LYB) Winterings collection. We also got some of the snowflake dies as part of the LYB craft kit. Since my craft room is a MESS, I couldn't think... I grabbed my binder of sketches... On that... whenever I read a blog and there's a sketch or challenge - I print it and note the date and website on the top.  I then put it in a binder in order of the deadlines.  I go for this book constantly when my inspiration is low... which seems to be every day lately... I was never a sketch girl but with little time, it seems to be the way I am flowing these days.

Anyway, I grabbed the Stuck on You Sketch that is due on the 17th.  Inspired by the snowflakes on the paper, I tried to match some photos to the paper. Once I got my background papers, I went to work placing pieces around the page. I glued down all the pictures and big pieces, as well as popped some snowflakes off the page.  It still looked like it need something so I kept working on clustering..  I also found a Fancy page with a "Snow Days" and I altered this to make my title.  Can you tell that I hit the 's'?

You'll also notice that I altered my photos (there's 4 here).  I intend to alter some more photos soon... I also love love love to sand my photos.  Gives it that vintage... "insta"-feel.

Supplies Used: LYB Winterings paper and crafting kit, Bazzill background paper, Making Memories Reverie metallique paper, AC elements glitter buttons, SU white baker's twine, Bella Blvd Sophisticates blue high five alphabets, Carta Bella Winter Fun Element stickers, SU larger pearl rhinestones and basic pearls, SU basic Black marker and Tim Holtz distress stickers.

Hoping to create some kits for a crop tonight and to send out some spring catalogs.  But maybe I'll give up and scrap a "Scrap That" sketch... I have a plan... but just for the title. :)
