Winter Fun - FCCB DT Project Challenge "Winter Warmies"

This week over at Fantabulous Cricut there is a "Winter Warmies" challenge.  Now, since I live in Miami, that is a challenge in of itself since we don't really have winter, but luckily, I just got back from a great family vacation staying at a cabin in North Carolina and I have some awesome winter photos with snow!!! Since we were completely bundled up in all the pictures, all of them worked for this challenge, I just needed to pick a theme for my layout.  I decided to focus on one of the most fun parts of our trip - sledding!  Throughout our trip I was just thinking about all the cute layouts I could make with the super adorable "Winter Frolic" cartridge and it helped me create the layout below.  Oh, I cannot wait to make more layouts using this cartridge! There is A LOT of dimension on this layout!  Just look for yourself...

The whole bottom part of the layout is recreated "snow" using cotton, which I added some glitter to make it sparkle.  The title and super cute boy embellishment (which I made to match my son!) are popped, of course!!  I arranged the pictures slanted to recreate the "downhill" feel of the sledding.

This title has a lot of dimension and sparkle to it, but this picture still doesn't do it justice.  First I flocked the "Winter" part and then I used some doodlebug glitter for the "fun".  I didn't feel the "winter" word was sparkly enough, so I added another layer using MS fine glitter and another brand fine glitter that I sprinkled on the rest.  

Other adorable embellishments with a journaling tag...

The cuffs are flocked and I used MS drippy goo punch as a border on the right page.

Another close up of my boy on the sled...

I hope you join us this week at Fantabulous Cricut for our "Winter Warmies" challenge, too!

I will also be adding this layout into the Frosted Design challenge this week of using 3 or more photos on a layout.
