Scrapbook page - Echo Park papers

Hello again! wow that week went quickly!

I'm back with something a little different for me....I've tried to make a 12x12" layout.
It's something I've always  been scared of - so much space on the page! although I did love going to Judith Eldon's scrapbook classes. It's so much easier when you're told what to do, isn't it?   :)

I've used the January Scrap Map from Creative Craft World's challenge blog here.

 The paper is from the Echo Park - Winter Park Collection from here.  The little 'snowballs' on the string are from Tesco's sale last year. I added a hidden journalling tag behind the picture for extra little details. The photograph is my little rascal Caleb, just after he had thrown a snowball at me and his daddy preparing to pelt me with another one! 

These little mittens were cut out with the Cameo.  I cut the snowflakes from the blue card and then layered them on white card.  I sponged around the mittens and cuffs with TH weathered wood distress ink.

 The title is also cut with the Cameo from red card.  I used a glue pen and Glamour dust to add (hopefully!) an icy sparkle.

That's it for today :) thank you for stopping by and I'll be back with more soon!

What a lovely job you've done. I used to be scared of scrapbooking too but it's not so different fron cardmaking really. Just a bigger area, same techniques.

Sarah this is just wonderful! I love all your little details - the snowballs, the mittens etc. I've been thinking I might just get some 'list' pages done for each child, each month and get them to fill in the answers - and then I could end up with a year for each of them! Vicky x
