It can't be winter yet...can it?

Well it sure felt like it last week on Cape Cod. We had a day filled with the big fluffy white stuff. I just don't know if I am ready for it yet. Ready or not it arrived, and I couldn't resist taking pictures. The snow looked so pretty covering all the brightly colored fall foliage still clinging to our trees. Dusty, our cat, wasn't too sure about it. She loves going out side with my hubby, but it was a bit too chilly on this day.

November 2013 Scrapbook PJ Party Sketch
iClassygirl aka Tiare, hosts a fun Scrapbooking PJ party once a month and features the current Club Scrap monthly kit.  This month's sketch featured a double page spread. My wintery photos were the perfect fit for the sketch.
Here are some of the ways I chose to make the sketch my own.
Tear the edges of the Pattern Basics Pastel dots paper. Add chipboard snowflakes painted with Creative Concoctions Gesso and clear glitter glue. A silver sequin and gemstone add interest to the centers. Use strips of rhinestones from the Spring Chorus kit for further embellishment.
Ink the outside edges of your layouts with WOW Red and Blue Neon Inks.  Mat your photos using HPOPS. Fossils orange and Avant Garde green were used on the double page spread. Choose quote and sentiment stamps for a title and added interest on the spread. 
Thanks again to Tiare for hosting this fun online get-together. It is always nice to share crafting time with folks, even if they are spread out all across the country.

Hope you will check out the video of her event and give this double page layout sketch a go!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
