Snow Day...

Today I'm sharing a layout that I did recently.  It's not for a design team or anything, just for me.  I was at a crop and wanted to challenge myself to use my stockpile of papers and kits that I never get to use because I usually have some deadline to meet.  It's so nice to sometimes have NOTHING to do except what you want to do.  I am thankful for the many DT positions with amazing companies and people that I have been on but sometimes it's refreshing to have no pressure... no deadline.  I felt renewed after doing this one!  Which makes it easier to be creative in my deadline work!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE what I do and this is just an added bonus.  So, this layout started with a Studio Calico kit that was from December.  I cracked that baby open and dug into my stash of doilies.

 I also used some circle punches and border punch to create a fun border with a peek to another piece of paper beneath.
 Some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Glass Bead Glitter Gel through a dot stencil and some Glimmer Mist Glaze dripped around the page makes for some snowy looking texture.
 Loved this "december" stamp from Studio Calico.  I used Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper's Big Brush Pen in black.
 My stash of doilies had some really pretty snowflake-ish ones so I used them to continue the snow feel. Love this one from a shop on Etsy (can't remember which one...sorry).
These photos of my boys throwing snowballs on our first snow fall of the season is perfect for this page!  I added some epoxy dots, vellum, and glittery ribbon to complete the theme!

Thanks for letting me share this bonus layout with you!  Keep warm everyone and head on over to Party Time Tuesdays Blog for more inspiration!
