A couple of weeks ago I posted a card with Flip-flops
~ very summery. Last week I showed my American Cowboy
in the fall, and now I'm moving into winter. Whew, I'm glad the seasons don't cycle that quickly; although, sometimes in Indiana it feels like it does.
Actually, I've had this layout sitting in CCR for sometime and wasn't ready to put it with pictures until I found these pictures from 1993 of Katie and her daddy out on a snow day. If I remember right, my son was just a few months old and Katie wanted to go to Gram's and play in the snow. Daddy was probably wanting to get out of the house, also!
I was inspired by Scrap Our Stash Challenge
where the challenge is Let's Go Shopping. The idea is to shop the list of ingredients (from your stash, of course!) and use 5 of the items from that list!
Here is the shopping list:
|Die cut, washi tape, paperclip, sequins|
|Transparency snowflakes, more sequins, die cut|
Stars (3 or more)
Striped Paper (not lined)
Enamel Dots (3 or more)
Buttons (3 or more)
Arrows (3 or more)
Sequins (3 or more)
Use (2) or more types of punches
Tags (2 or more)
Flowers (3 or more)
I typed the items I chose to use in red. The pink heart is a paperclip and the transparency (acetate alternative) was used as a stencil. Then I used two of the snowflakes cut from the stencil on the right side of the page. I coated them with white gesso and sprinkled them with glitter.
Now there's also fun to be had at 613 Avenue Create
