Lets build a Snowman with Bo Bunny Altitude

Bo Bunny has some awesome winter collections this year and I just love the colours in the Altitude collection.
I was recently up on the Bo Bunny blog with this layout using the softer side to the collection, but I couldn't resist creating a page using the stronger purples and blues that feature in the papers.

This was the layout that I created, I used  Creative Scrappers sketch 283 to jumpstart my mojo and it was plain sailing after that.

I added some of the Sugar Pearlescents to the corners, they look like tiny snowflakes. I also added some to the noteworthy title diecut for the same effect.

The sketch called for lots of layers and the beautiful tones of the Altitude collection made it easy to mix and match. I added stitching to the edges and used my finger to lift the papers giving them a more 3d look, I often do this as it adds height to your layout without using foam pads etc.

CSI Case File Scrap 365-10 - Solved

I have been a bad blogger and it's been a few weeks since I shared one of my Case Files from CSI
This week I am quite pleased with how my layout turned out even though I was a bit puzzled how I would work the colours

This is the Case File

And here is how I solved it
Cursive font
Document a winter favourite
On the tag behind the title I wrote " A new tradition was born last year, where we all visit Cadbury Garden Centre to see the wonderful Christmas display they always have and as a little treat we come away with a new ornament for our trees.
A couple of close ups
My youngest daughter and my Granddaughter just couldn't resist modelling a couple of the theatrical masks they had for sale!

I added some gold sequins for a bit of pzazz but they didn't photograph too well, adding  a little white paint to my thickers gave them a bit more of a "dramatic" look I thought. I used odds and ends from a few different designers and got to use up yet a little more of my stash "yay" I love it when that happens.
Hope you will find time to play along this week over at CSI
