{The (Paper) Trail Makers Snow Challenge!}


One moring at the beginning of January, I took some pics looking out my back door. {doot, doot, doot, lookin' out my back door -earworm alert. haha!}

I saw this "snow fun" challenge at The (Paper) Trail Makers blog and thought...perfect! I know just what photos I will use. :)

I started with a piece of cream colored coredinations cs and misted it with "moonlight" glimmer mist. I placed some ek punched snowflakes down on the cs to create a masked effect. Then I stitched the entire piece onto a gold piece of bazzill. The pps I used are Websters & MME. Title letters are AC thickers. Die cut is from 7 Gypsies - I hand stitched around it w/glittery DMC (called Precious Metal Effects). The little sparkly tree is an old chip piece from Melissa Frances - I added a bit of ric rak. Chip corner pieces are Basic Gray - painted & glossy accented. Bling is Queen & Co., clear button is LaMode and the sheer cream trim is from my good friend, Kayla who sends me the best freakin' stuff ever!!! {thanks again, Kay! xo}



Thanks to The (Paper) Trail Makers girls for this fun challenge and thank you for coming by my blog!

Happy week-end!! :)
hugs, patti
