Snow Fun | Scrap Our Stash GDT

I am guesting over at Scrap our Stash this month.  Today I am sharing my contribution for their second challenge.

The challenge is two part, first a sketch and secondly a product / stash busting sort of portion where you choose one item from each section of the list.

I enjoyed working with the sketch, it was a good one with lots of possibilities!    I picked up this Simple Stories collection called  "Snow Fun" last winter knowing it was perfect for my boys.  Mostly because my youngest had a green winter coat!  That is how us scrappers work, right?

I stuck really close to the sketch, but opting to use small square cut-aparts from one of the patterned papers instead of  the suggested four small photos.  I did appreciate that the sketch did suggest smaller photos as my pictures did not turn out well from this event and printing them on a smaller scale helped to disguise their lousy quality. 

I layered in several of the Simple Stories stickers where possible adding pop dots behind some of them.

I also used some ephemera from Echo Park and enamel dots from YNS.

I moved my title (which was created from a combination of alphas and a sticker) up slightly so that I could add journaling to my page.

I ran the edges o all of my papers through white paint, and then traced / doodled around them with a black Sharpie.

For the stash portion of the challenge, I used a DEAR LIZZY date stamp, ECHO PARK EPHEMERA, and an Evalicious FLAIR.

Supply List: Simple Stories patterned papers and stickers; white and black Mr. Huey's mist; DecoArt white paint; black fine tip Sharpie;  Evalicious flair; Echo Park ephemera; Your Next Stamp enamel dots; Dear Lizzy date stamp; Memento black ink.

Thanks so much for visiting today, I hope you join in the challenges at Scrap our Stash
you have until the 28th to play along.
