There is Snowman Like You-SOUS

We had a real challenge this week at SOUS having to work with a round sketch.. I'm so stuck on using cardstock for the background to my layouts, that I decided to keep it square but add the circle to the center instead.. plus, this way I was able to embellish it the way I wanted to..LOL  love making these little snowmen using the oval cuts on the George and Basic Shapes Cartridge.. 

Here is the sketch we used this week:

and here are some close ups of the layout:
The title.. it is actually grey cardstock on the back, looks kind of mud colored..LOL
I added some white liquid pearl and some frosted lace stickles on it.. 

My habanero (hot hubby)..LOL..
We were visiting the north pole, took the kids to meet Santa Clause, 
and it was extrememly cold out that day, hance the furry hat..
We sat down to eat dinner and he just kept the hat on..LOL
