Merry Christmas 2015 - Stuck?! Sketches

Merry Christmas

This is our first Green Christmas

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.

Sketch-y Friday

I LOVE Christmas
because of my little

Look at that face!!  That smile melts my heart!
I had this title in mind and this little frame 
waiting for the right picture and sketch.

Here are some close-ups:
 October Afternoon type letters and wooden veneer mom -altered
thickers letters my - altered
 3 years ago - at a ScrapMuch? retreat
I won this FUN little frame.
I painted my littles' lips
with acrylic paint
(shhhh!!  I did that)
and had him "kiss" the frame
- he's a real sport and has learned to NOT ask LoL
 this cluster of tags and journal-ing
look at that face, that smile
love this kid
I should do this more often
This is part of my prize pack 
from Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine
