SCRAPBOOK SATURDAY - CAN YOU FEEL THE CHILL!

Hi all!!! Well, I hope everyone who went shopping yesterday got all the deals they were looking for - I did :-)! Very happy although I did not get my shopping all done so I will be back out there during the week since I want to be done!!! It has gotten cold here so I thought I would share this layout I did a few days ago depicting our beautiful snow-covered landscapes in the mountains - you may recognize one of the pics as the header on my blog! The layout of this page was actually done using Pamela's sketch from over at the Coconut Scrapshop - she is a fellow DT member and a very talented gal, so swing on by her blog if you get the chance!! She stamps and scrapbooks fabulously! Now, I want you to know how excited I was to FINALLY get a chance to use some of the HUGE Felt Flurries - they are sooooo fun to play with!!! I love the layering effect and how pretty they look! I also used a few of the smaller one and added some fun buttons!! The middle of the large ones have silver snowflake brads I had in my stash. I also did some sewing on this layout, around the edges of the half-circle. And, I stamped little snowflakes all over my white thickers letters in Bashful Blue ink! Here is a close-up so you can see how they turned out! This was a really fun page to do - and I love that we are surrounded by this beauty where we live!! Well, I am off to a scrapbook crop tonight, whoohooo!! I can't wait, I need some time with some other gals chatting, and scrapping for my own personal enjoyment!!! Have a fabulous weekend and I will be back tomorrow with a fun project to share!!
