The Magic of Winter

  As we finally approach spring I thought I would post one last winter LO to remind myself that snow and cold really can be beautiful! Did I really just say that?!?! Just a few more pictures of the fabulous Montana mountains and my fabulous friend that I was blessed to spend the week with skiing! This LO was created based on the sketch challenge at Colorful Creations. I love sketches and this one allowed me to use lots of scraps from this paper collection! Sketches that encourage journaling are my favorites! I tend to do a lot of hidden journaling but love it when I can incorporate it on my page. Here is the sketch:

My interpretation:

Products used:
 Patterned paper- Bo Bunny
Flowers- Bo Bunny, Prima, Recollections
Bling- Prima, Recollections
Title- Cricut

Here is my interpretation:

  If you noticed...I turned the sketch sideways! That is what I love about sketches- you can turn them sideways, upside down or work with them as is and get such a variety of looks! The pictures in this LO were taken on a recent ski trip to Montana. This paper collection really enhanced the beauty of these pics!
