Season Hopping!

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
Washi tape
Stars (3 or more)
Striped Paper (not lined)
Enamel Dots (3 or more)
Polaroid Frame
Buttons (3 or more)
Dimensional sticker
Paper Clip
Arrows (3 or more)
Wood Veneer
Journaling card
Sequins (3 or more)
Use (2) or more types of punches 
Die cut
Tags (2 or more)
Flair button
Rub On
Flowers (3 or more)
Cork embellishment

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 where it's an Anything Goes Challenge with an optional Create your own Challenge!
