I know it has been ages since I have posted anything crafty and fun, please forgive me! I have hoped and wished that I could be a regular poster but unfortunately with the chaos and business of my life, posting will be sporadic. I know, sad days. However, I have had some extra down time recently and thought it would be nice to use it to post some crafty inspiration and shares with you all. So, I am starting the New Year off with the Old Year. The layout I am sharing today was created in December and left on my desk while I left the country. I finished it when I returned from my extended vacation. And here it is:
I struggled with this layout a lot. This was started for a challenge over at Scrapjazz, in which we were to use a Christmas Song as the title of a layout - Christmas themed or not. I love Winter time, I love everything about the Winter season - the snow, the cold, the short days, the crisp clear days, wood fires. All of it. So when I saw the challenge, I immediately thought of all the photos I have of Winter. The scalloped piece of paper was cut from a piece of 12x12 DCWV paper. The snowman was originally part of the pattern paper, and I turned it into it's own embellishment - in the same spot that I cut it out from.
Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day full of creativity!
