Snow Day






This LO is based on the SOUS (Stuck On Us Sketches) sketch. I spent waaaay too much time on this layout! This was difficult for me for several reasons: First ~ I have all boys and I REALLY wanted to use purple on this LO. I struggled with the shade of purple, how much purple, how to tone it down...you name it! Then, I had to stretch it into a 2 page LO because I could never match purple with any other boy page!! I am also a 2 page scrapper 99% of the time. Finally, I agonized over the title ~ what to use as a title, could I stick a snowman in the title in place of a letter, do I need to title both pages, what color (originally I wanted purple but then black shadow with white and finally just black). I decided to spread the title over both pages.

I had to bling it up just a notch just because I could get away with it on a purple LO!!

I can't believe I spent half of the weekend on this!!! I could have completed a small album in the amount of time I agonized over this!! Oh well, each page is worth it once it is completed!

From my cricut library, I used Snow Friends for the snowmen, gloves, hat and snowflake. I used Winter Wonderland for the square snowflake. I used Ashlyn's Alphabet for the title.

Lori, I think purple is a good color for boys too! It's close to blue. And, you did a great job on the layout; the time you spend was worth it! It looks so nice.

I'll be seeing you!

Lori! Woo hoo, I made it here! LOL! Ok seriously you sound like me with me LO..I for the life of me sat there and could just not not not decide how to embellish it! And then I laugh because of how well recieved it was (LOL, if they only knew!)
Well I think the weekender was worth it too! Love the double pages and I think the way you moved the sketch around is just great!
I am super glad this worked for you to join this weeka and really hope you'll play again.
