Let it Snow- SOUS die cut reveal

Yikes, Tomorrow is New Years Eve already?.. Wow, how fast time flies when your having fun..
I had a lot of fun putting together this layout for our die cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches aka SOUS.. We were challenged to use "SNOWFLAKES" on our project (any project), but once again I chose to make a scrapbook layout and used a photo of my daughter that she had a friend take one day while they were outside in the cold.. I absolutely love this photo of her in her furry coat..LOL

here is my layout:

this layout is out for publication

I once again used a lot of different techniques on my layout, one being heat embossing.. Which I have several close ups of:

I used clear embossing ink , swirly stamp and some
 Winter Wonderland embossing powder.. it glimmers!!
I also thought it kind of resembled the wind blowing..

Here is a close up of the journaling I added.. plus all the pink Rhinestones I added..

My big snow flakes.. Which I cut from the Winter Woodland cart.. Love these!! cut them in white cardstock, then inked the edges with Blue Denim Distressing ink, pop dotted them for an 3d effect and then added a small punched snowflake to the middle of the smaller ones, plus pink Rhinestones..

The title I cut from the Winter Frolic cart, added a few MS punched snowflakes and then rhinestones.. you can also see my branches here, cut those from the Winter Woodland cart..

and finally my daughter Amber.. 
plus, my big MS edge punch work with some small snowflakes and rhinestones..
