In The Meadow...

I had hoped to have this posted on Sunday, but ended up spending most of my day trying to locate my camera so I could take a picture.  The Sparkle N Sprinkle Design Team recently made scrapbook pages.  We were to use lots of sparkle and dimension.  I had something different in mind, but the family pictures we took over the holiday need not arrive in time.  Luckily my nephew’s wife was willing to let me use this adorable picture of her children during their latest winter storm.

The base is created using some decorative paper and blue and white layers.  After adding some blue rectangles, punched with snowflake corner and border punches, I used the Masking on Velvet GlitterTechnique to create the white strip down the center.   I used Cloud Nine, Jasper Blue, and Reflection Velvet Glitter and then added a delicate embossed border with a Beatrix Potter Embossing Folder by Crafter's Companion and the Dry Embossing on Velvet Glitter technique .  I layered the photo on two distressed layers and added it to the center of the page.

Fellow designer, April Williams, gave me this cute fencing I added along the bottom of the page.  Using a combination of Spellbinders’ Standard Circle dies, SNS Dimensional Glue, and Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft, I created the snowman.  Using more dimensional glue I created the eye, nose, mouth, and buttons, covering them with Black Suede and Tiger Orange Velvet Glitter.

This page wouldn’t have been complete without some snowflakes.  I die cut more cardstock covered with "Tear-ific"Tape and added more Cloud Nine, Jasper Blue, and Reflection Velvet Glitter, along with a little Navy Opaque Glitter.  The different layers were popped up with dimensionals.  Head over to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog for full details on this page. 

Have a wonderful week!!

Wow! You have achieved a beautiful layout, Marie! It's gorgeous - so much dimension and lovely colors and textures. Again, WOW. Don't you just hate when you can't find something? And you know you put it somewhere obvious or safe (at the moment, anyway). So where did you ultimately find the camera? Your great-niece (or nephew?) is adorable, Marie.
