It was a brutal winter this year in Minnesota. Record cold days and record snow falls. The kids missed 5 days of school, the most ever. And just as we got a break and the mountains (literally) of snow were melting, with just just 3 weeks to go until spring, this happened:
The good news is now it is May and all the snow is gone! So it is time to finish scrapping this winter. I used a lot of fun products and techniques on this layout. The snowflakes above the title were embossed with Deco Foil Metallix Gel in silver with Memory Box's Winter Snowflakes stencil.
I added a multiple of colors of Deco Foil Transfer Sheet to Creative Embellishment's chipboard snowflakes with Thermoweb's Sticky Dot Adhesive (no heat needed!) for some fun color, sparkle and hints of the spring to come.
The title letters are Thickers attached with Sticky Dot Adhesive sheet (I love this stuff!). The decorative red border is a stamp from Gina K's Season's Greetings set and embossed with red embossing powder. The cute winged penguin is a stamp by The Cat's Pajamas.
This layout is based on a sketch from the Thermoweb blog celebrating National Scrapbook Day. The penguin and colorful chipboard snowflakes were inspired by the mood photo at Creative Embellishments.
