Snow Days layout.... H2H Challenge - Snow Much Fun!

 
 
I made this layout this past weekend, using a retired paper pack called Aspen.
 
I saw this morning that the Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week is themed "snow much fun", so it fits perfectly into that challenge.
 
I just recently took photos of my son and his friend toboganning over Christmas break, and just need to get them printed to added to my layout.
 
I'm thinking I may print them out in black and white because they will work better with the layout colours.
 


The inspiration for the layout design came from a Scrapbook Generation layout that I saw on Pinterest.
 
The title is created using the matching retired Aspen MyStickease, and some new Silver Glitter paper, which will be available in the CTMH Spring/Summer 2013 Idea Book that will go live on Feb. 1st.

Here's some close-ups:






Happy creating!  :)

Oh why do I always fall for the retired paper packs? This is a gorgeous layout, I really like the layout of the pics. Why can't I ever find that snowflake on my carts??? It completely eludes me. Sigh.
