Winter in the Woods

Well with only 9 days to go til Christmas I was actually surprised I managed to scrapbook. This is most certainly the last I'll be able to this side of the big day as Wednesday will be my last day off before Christmas and I've already been booked in by mum to take her to get the last of the food then go over and drop the presents off at Kelly's. But anyway back to the point... this weeks challenge on UKS was set by the Dizzy Dots. We were asked to choose one of three sketches, to use either warm or cool colours & to use something new. I chose sketch number three which is this one
I also decided to use cool colours which meant I could crack open my brand new Quirky Kits and came up with this layout using photos taken in Wakerley Woods by Ian at the beginning of the year after some snow
I knew straight away I wanted to use the Teresa Collins white wood grain paper as my base as well as the snowflake ILS paper as they went perfectly with the theme. I'm doily mad at the moment so I was thrilled when I saw all the ones which came in the kit. I covered a shipping tag with pale green chevron Washi Tape to help it blend in more with the layout. Everything used is from the kit except for two strips of scraps (my scraps bag is not get any smaller!), Washi Tape, label & pearls.
