Let it snow!

This year we've been getting alot more snow than is typical for Georgia. In fact, we just had our first white Christmas in years!! What a blessing that was!! So, I couldn't resist doing a cute snowman page. I whipped out my "Snow Friends" cartridge along with the My Pink Stamper Winter Punnies stamp set (since it fit my theme perfectly).!!

Here is what they look like:

Aside from the cute saying, what caught my eye were the adorable little snowflakes. I really wanted to highlight them in some way on my layout...but how? I know! A border! And so, that is what I did. I created a fun, colorful border all around my page...using only two snowflake stamps and repeating blocks of four different colors.
And here is a close up of Mr. Snowman and the "Let it snow!" sentiment (also from the Winter Punnies stamp set).

For this layout there is room for four photos. I created my photo mats to mimic a "window". And although you can't really see it in the picture, the "snow" on it is made of white glitter paper. So, it's VERY sparkly!!!

In case any of you might be interested, here is the link where you can find several online retailers that carry the Winter Punnies stamp set (along with many other ones that go perfectly with your Cricut cartridges).

Hey Shelley! Thanks for stopping by my blog :) We live in Kennesaw in Cobb Co. I think that's about 2 1/2 hours away if I remember correctly. My son had a soccer tournament down there last spring and we stayed a few nights to save on driving. The MPS Designer team is going to be so much fun!!
