Cold Family Fun Layout!

I'm so excited we got skates over the weekend! My 4 and 8 year old girls are really excited to get out on the ice to try them out. I think this year will be a learning year - I haven't actually skated for quite a few years! But, I think it will be fun :) We have cold, snowy weather here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada for so many months it really seems like we have to make the best of it. There are a lot of local ice rinks as well as outdoor community rinks, so I'm hoping it will be a fun family activity!

And, since we are already planning winter activities, what better time to scrap some winter pics with this awesome BoBunny Whiteout paper collection?!! I love the glittery shimmer of these papers! I added some papers from my stash that were purples and blues to coordinate and pull in colors from the photos. I used some Distress Inks to sponge around the edges of my paper lightly and added some faux stitching with my black Smash Book pen - Love!

I cut the Family Fun tickets apart and paired them with the COLD letters that came in a coordinating BoBunny paper ephemera pack for my title.

An AC punch that I have made these awesome notebook punches at the top of my paper tag that I tucked behind my photo.

I used the sketch below as a base for my layout - I love using sketches and I find it stretches my imagination for combing patterned papers!
