Merry Christmas 2015 - Stuck?! Sketches

One day, we did have 15cm of that white fluffy stuff
~ and that ONE day we
lucked out and had our family snow photos done
Merry Christmas 2015
Photo credits to Danielle May.
She put up with my boys and I -
we were fighting the sickies and so grumpy!
(*she whispers and I was planning my page and ordering supplies LoL)
We are a "serious" group and this year I really wanted
to capture us having fun in the fresh snow !
From snow angels to snowball fights
- we had a BLAST!!

Here are some close ups:
 I love the addition of the cotton tag
 a little texture paste and Stickles to add some "snow" affect
 This corner addition turned out elegant

Here is Laura's SKETCH:

Wishing you and your family a wonderful day,
turkey belly fun and time with your loved ones.

50 - ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday

Hi there!!

I am sharing my
latest double page

Sketch-y Friday
 I had a friend of mine make some pages and she did such an amazing job
on them, it took me until now to attempt to add any pages
to complete my hubby's party.
I threw a "surprise" 50th cowboy hoedown 
Joaquin and I, dressed up as Woody and Jesse

Left side

Right side

 thickers title, texture paste, twine (like a lasso) 
50 start flag /pin
 Can you believe my hubby was the 5-0 in 2011
2 +3 = 5 and the watch resembles the 0
March 12th is his day, cut file and Tim Holtz distressing 
Lots of texture and layers!

Here is Laura's sketch:

Hi there
I had printed this picture

Found it when Laura revealed her sketch
(lucky ME!!)

Here are some close-ups:

 Burlap and machine stitching,
water mark staining and some cork flair.
