Reindeer Crossing-Layout for SOUS reveal&DT -GC

If T.G.I.F stands for "Thank God its Friday!", does S.H.I.T stand for "So Happy Its Tuesday!"??..LOL
Seen that today and thought it was hilarious.. I'm happy everyday!!
BUT!! Fridays do have their advantages and this Friday is another reveal over SOUS..
and who wouldn't be happy about that?..LOL
I'm so excited cause I actually got to play with my cricut, which I haven't really had much time to do in a while..
and since I'm going to be busy helpign out my sister-in-law this week by creating some cute stuff for her Craft fair sale, I was able to use this new Midnight Frost line from Bo Bunny, which was very generously donated to me by Generations Crafting.. When I seen these papers, I fell instantely in love with them..
But before I talk your ears off, let me get to the layout:

The background paper is actually White cardstock that I actually stamped with embossing ink, used clear embossing powder and then heat set it with my heat gun, after that I inked it with Tim Holtz distress inks: Broken china and then Faded Jeans.. I love it!! 
and for some close ups:

The title from WinterFrolic Cartridge and the reindeer is from the Christmas cartridge

I cut the marquee using the storybook cartridge and the sleigh is off of the Christmas cartridge
and the journaling is computer generated..

close up of the sleigh and flowers

close up of the flowers, leaves and snowflakes which are little foam covered
Holdiay Dazzlers by Petaloo which I also bought from Generations Crafting and I also added some frosted lace Stickle to the ends of all the flowers.

and finally a close up of the actual reindeer..LOL
