Let It Snow...Man!

Being so far South, snow is definitely a rare occasion.  But I was so excited to see that our Add-On sketch at Sketch Support this month from Allison, was the cutest little Snow Man!!  Even though we don't have snow (or much cold weather for that matter), we still have Santa's Wonderland at The Bass Pro Shop.  When we took the kids to have their pictures made with Santa, Frosty was waiting to greet us while we waited in line.  My daughter decided she needed to have her picture made with him, before going to see Santa!!  I loved that her outfit matched Frosty's and I added a vintage filter to the photo.  Here is a look at what I did with the Add-On Sketch #13:




I used my Big Shot to add some embossing to my Snow Man to add a little texture and sprayed it with some Shimmer Glitz, to give it the sparkly look of snow.  My background paper for this one is a light blue & white polka dot from Jillibean Soup and I mixed in some scraps from the 25 Days of Christmas line from Simple Stories.  I really wanted to create a Winter feel on this page for Frosty!!  :)  I added some white trim from The Paper Studio and some pom pom trim for a snowy ground.  I also cut some snowflakes on the Expression and added some Shimmer Glitz to make them sparkle.  Don't forget to head over to Sketch Support and check out what Michelle did with the Add-On and check back the rest of this week for a lot more inspiration from the Ladies.
