Watch the Snow - Scrap it with a Song

Christmas is coming and we are scrapping the songs over at Scrap it with a Song

The weeks 'Pop Gals' challenge was to use the song -
“Step into Christmas” by Elton John

I used this photograph from last Christmas.  You cannot see in the photograph but he is in one of those child carrriers that you put on your back - so he had a good vantage point.

I love this photo as you can see some snowflakes on his eyelashes.

Hope you all have a super Christmas and New Year

All the best

Langdale Pod

Langdale Pod

I created the following layout to take part in challenges with Colour Stories Inspiration, Creative Scrappers and Punky Scraps.
I used sketch #236 from Creative Scrappers
to kickstart my inspiration.
I also used this colour challenge from Colour Stories Inspiration

For Evidence I used: Patchwork Pattern (stamp pattern to right of photo)
                                  Frame (Felt brackets around husbands face)

For Testimony I used: Write an add for your home (in this case a camping pod rented for the weekend)

My journaling reads:
Cosy 1 room abode, perfect for the camper looking for more of a 'feel of home'.  Doors open onto your own patio area, which leads out onto a meadow (or a lake) depending on the weather. Furry neighbours are a welcome addition at dinner time!! 

Challenge #57 at Punky Scraps also looked fun, so I decided to take part in the too!

The challenge was to use all of the following:
1. make a layout using only stamps NO PP       2. cardboard
3. staples                                                          4. flowers  
5 different alphas                                              6. black and white photo

I used the following products to put the layout together:

Bazzill Basics Paper in Salt
Acrylic paint
American Crafts felt brackets & chipboard arrow
Colour shades taken from a Dulux strip
Tim Holtz distress inks in Worn Lipstick and Faded Jeans
American Crafts Thickers (various)
Hampton Art - Ditto Label Clear Stamps   
Smoochie Manoochie Clear Stamps (Flower) SMSDS1
Ink it up stamp pad - light blue
Journalling spot clear stamp - unsure of make
MME Paper - Lost and Found 2 - Blush(small photo is matted onto this)  

I hope you enjoyed looking at my layout.
