Sweet Memories-sketch reveal S.O.U.S

Yikes.. Its so close to Christmas already.. I certainly hope I got everything taken care of before Monday..LOL   But before then, I get to share a layout with you that I created as my design team project for S.O.U.S.. For this Friday, our Sandi Clarkson designed a very cute sketch for us to play with and so, here is my take on the sketch:

I once again put my Imagine to work.. I used Imagines Mr.Frosty image cartridge for this layout.. lots of fun playing with the prints on that cartridge and I own it all to Margie.. She was so sweet and sent me that cartridge for absolutely nothing.. Wow!! how blessed am I to have a friend like that  :)

How's about a few close ups:

The title phrase I found on the Winter Frolic cartridge.. love that cartridge by the way :)

side pic.. no foam tape on this layout, I ran out and my local craft store did as well..

I printed the background paper and then added some white liquid pearl drops to the centers of all of the little snow flakes..

This photo was taken back in December of 1999 while my in-laws were here visiting us for Christmas.. We took an over night train up to Lapland to see Santa Clause... Here we are standing in front of the hotel we stayed at.. Had a lot of fun!!
