Brrrr! Winter

Brrrr! Winter
That's the challenge theme over at Cut It Up!  Our sponsor is One Happy Cut; they are generously giving away a Gift Certificate.  You'll want to visit Cut It Up to see the DT inspiration and read about the challenge!

I love this winter picture of our family!  It's 5 years old now, but I hadn't scrapped it yet and now is the time with that great theme!

I started with Balloon Ride paper from CTMH.  It's retired now, but I love that paper because it has a subtle texture/print that is beautiful for backgrounds!  I then cut my own Connecting Circles stencil from the Artbooking Cartridge and added texture paste.  

I cut the trees and put texture paste and glitter on it.  The paper backing the photo and the base of the page are from DCWV Once Upon a Time Stack.
