SNOW -Irresistible

Oh its Fridayyyyy and that means another reveal at SOUS..woo hoo.. I absolutely LOVED this weeks sketch challenge.. I pretty much knew exactly what I was going to make and here it is.. I created and paper pieced the snowmen.. I think they are about the cutest lil things...
The photo is of my daughter Amber and I love how it looks like she is sneaking a peek though the layout.. I printed the photo myself on my printer, which isn't exactly high quality..

Here are some close ups and all of the details on the making of this layout..

 Here is a close up of the big snowman, He is just about the cutest.. I had a lot of fun designing him and putting him together.. I used some facial stamps by "Peachy Keen Stamps" for the eyes..
 The two smaller snowmen..

 Here is the left side with the stars and hearts.

 and then the right side with the snowflakes.

Finally the title.. I used the foundation cut from the "Opposites Attract!" cart and then added the title font.

Cricut cart: George and Basic Shapes
base foundation, hollow circle, large heart and ovals (snowmen)

    I love your work and have copied many of your layouts. Our kids are in the same age group and you have given me some great ideas. I love the fact that you tell us where each item comes from and was wondering if you can give us approximate sizes that you use on your cricut items.

  13. I would absolutely love to share the cut sizes, but since I used my Design studio software, I usually stretch and widen everything by hand, and not by size...so sorry about that...

  14. Triple Wow! Your work is so inspirational. I never would have thought to put all that together. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with the rest of us. I am learning so much from you!

  15. Oh I do so love your layout it is so beautiful the snowmen are absolutly stunning. Thank you so much for sharing your talent.

Thanks for all your wonderful comments, sorry it took so long to get back with ya, I did get a new computer now if I could buy some time...LOL!! Wonderful as always!!! Take Care, Dawn
