This is the fantabulous kit from The Paper Trail for January. It is just amazing! I know I said that last month, but it is another amazing kit. If you love Echo Park...you are sure to love this kit! There are also some great embellies from Creative Charms. Look at that pom pom wire fiber "ribbon" that looks like little snowballs and see that chocolate ribbon with the polka dots...well...when I felt it, it has the consistency on the back of it like the ribbon that you wrap packages with and then curl it all up with scissors. I just had to try it to see if it would work and guess what...it did!!! Can't wait to try that on a project I will make later on this month. That sticker element page is so fun! Putting pop up dots on those or just keeping them as is jazzes up your page immensely! Ok...enough talk about the kit, just go buy it! I promise you will NOT be sorry!
I found this sketch over at http://www.magistalmemories.blogspot.com/ and thought it would be a good starting point for my layout!
Here's my debut project!
See, I told you I loved those element stickers! You can spot them all over the place on this layout! When I got the kit this month, I knew exactly what pictures I wanted to use. This is the first time I have ever scrapped an 8 1/2X11 picture. It took me awhile to feel that I was doing the picture justice. My husband and I just love this picture of Jeremy. His blue eyes are so beautiful and it shows so much in this picture. I think I really captured his excitement of the almost 2 ft of snowfall we had last February. Notice the duct tape on the glove. It's not like he doesn't have other ones, but he really likes these!
