"Winter Warmies"



Hello Again!

First off, I would like to thank all of you who took the time to check out my first post.  It was quite delightful to read comments from all of you ladies who share in the enjoyment of scrapbooking and being crafty.  I never knew quite how far reaching this community was until now.  I really appreciate all of the encouragement, and enjoyed reading each and every comment left for me - I still can't believe I manage to squeak out a Top 5 with so many other wonderful projects posted - for this, I would like to say thank you once again.


Secondly, (for the real reason you are here, most likely) I thank you for stopping in either for the first time, or returning once again to see my second post, and my second challenge entrance into the FCCB's "Winter Warmies" challenge.  This challenge needed to include some type of winter clothing/accessory on the project.
My original idea was to create a layout of two people(namely, my husband & I) building a snowman.  I took it one step further by incorporating one of my all-time favorite winter specials, "Frosty, The Snowman."  I figure, how better could I put the two together than this?


Now, for the photos!

Finished:


Background Details:




Cricut Cuts:
People - Everyday Paper Dolls (Pop Dots behind heads & items in hands)
Bare Tree - Jubilee
Small background trees & big backgound tree - Doodle Charms
"Snow Day. . . Let's Play!" - Jubilee (White Gel Pen hand filled)

Freehand:
Frosty & his hat- Made him in Photoshop, hand cut, color added with various chalk tones(Pop dots behind head, hands, broom)
Snow balls in kid's hands
Frosty's pipe - hand cut/detailed with pen White Hills
Blue Mountains with Snow(shadows added with blue chalk, and highlights done with sparkly white chalk)
Photo Frame for 4"x6" snow edge(pop dots)




As for inspiration, I found this after I did my layout, but it is basically what I had in my head...

Also entering "Glittermania" (All of the chalks I used have sparkle/glitter in them, though they don't apparently photograph all too well)
