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.
