Frosted Layout

With all these snow days we've had lately, I decided to pull out my Frosted Paper and scrapbook some of our pictures from last year!  My son had just turned 3 when these pictures were taken, and it was really the first time he'd been able to enjoy the snow.  His older sister was teaching him how to make snowballs, catch snow on his tongue and make a snow angel.  The sentiment from this stamp set, "Simple Pleasures are Priceless Treasures," is a perfect title for these memories!
I used the basic pattern from the Frosted Workshop on the Go Kit, but changed a couple details to make it my own.  I swapped out the blue wreath paper for the slate snowflake paper, and changed around a couple of the embellishments.  I am known for taking WAY too many pictures, so narrowing down to just 6 was impossible for me!  I decided to resize a couple so that I could fit two on several of the photo mats.  This allowed me to incorporate my top 10 pictures into this one layout.  Here is the original CTMH artwork.
The title shape was cut using the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge.  I then stamped the sentiment right onto the shape (a piece of cake since the blocks and My Acrylix stamps are see-through, allowing for perfect placement).  I used the clear adhesive-backed sparkles to make my snowflakes a little fancier!  The blue snowflake border was also cut using the Artiste Cartridge.
I changed the placement of the snowflake and flourish on the right-hand page because I just felt that bottom corner needed something!  Popping the snowflakes up on the 3-D foam tape gives them dimension and allowed me to tuck the corner of the flourish under the snowflake.   
The Frosted Paper Pack and Workshop on the Go Kit will both be retiring at the end of this week!  Visit my website and order by Friday, January 31st, to get yours!
