Snowy Layout!

I have promised myself that I will do more scrapbooking this year. I haven't done much in the way of paper layouts since the class I went to folded! But I have so many papers and 12 x 12 card to use and I see this as a way of using it and getting photos either out of boxes in the garage or off my computer. With this in mind I looked for some scrapping challenges to inspire me and what better than   "Lasting Memories" Scrapbook Layout challenge (sister site to Digitally Sweet) Fortunately their challenges now stay open for a month as otherwise I would have missed the deadline for this one. The theme was Spring or Winter and I chose to use a photo of the snow we had in January 2010. I can't decide whether I prefer the snow or this relentless rain and wind we're having. My heart goes out to all those people here in the UK who have been flooded and had to leave their homes. Fortunately the only thing that floods here (so far) is my garage and then only when the rain comes down so heavily that the drains can't cope with it. When that happens I have to make sure the freezer is unplugged or else I lose all my electricity as well! I plan on getting some sandbags to put against the inside of the big door to see if that helps.

However, back to the layout, I have used some blue 12 x 12 card (possibly Stampin' Up) a very pretty sheet of foiled paper from Papermania and some pearlised brownish card (DCWV I think).  Some gold spotty washi tape (SU), a last minute addition to break up the brown, glittery thickers alphas, a Martha Stewart snowflake punch  and The Festive Flurry stamp set and matching framelits from SU. I stamped the snowflakes in Versamark then heat embossed them with Pool Party Embossing powder Some stickles and a rhinestone finished it off. The journalling is on the tag underneath the photo.
