This is my page. I wanted to scrap these 3 photos of this dance that my girls were in - seems like ages ago that there has never really been the right DSP for. The dresses are a colour that is Bermuda Bay and Pacific Point blended together. Snowflake Splendor in this years Holiday catalogue mini is perfect well except for the snowflakes but they ended up working for me.

I turned the sketch on it's side to make fitting my photos in way easier and moved my title over to the other 'blank' space and popped the journaling in the smaller area because I didn't have a lot to say. I then pulled out my favourite Very Versailles and toned down the snowflakes with leaves and script in Pacific Point and Misty Moonlight ink.

The layering behind the photos is DSP from the 6x6 Feels Like Frost packet - you can barely see where it overlaps. I love this DSP with its real life frost images on one side and silver foil / white patterns on the backs.

Oh my gosh the blue adhesive backed gems in the Snowflake Splendor Suite are just beautiful and add a little bling to this page just the way I like it.

I pulled out Christmas Layers Dies to get some textures with the flourish type pieces in there but will admit I avoided the snowflakes though even though I love them.
