Bundle Up!

I  came across some more old pictures and decided to do a layout of my son way, way back from 1991.  He was only 4 years old.  He was so cute, all bundled up playing outside in the snow.  He was so into dinosaurs back then.  Instead of building a snowman, he built snow dinosaurs.  He was so cute and I remember that day!  He had so much fun!  This layout did not photograph very well.  I will give it another try tomorrow in the day light.

I decided to give color blocking a try with this layout.  I see more and more of it in the galleries.  The paper I used was a winter stack I bought at Michaels last year by SEI.  I inked the edges of the squares with some chestnut roan ink.  I broke down and pulled out my sewing machine and stitched around the squares.  I definitely need to adjust the tension on my machine.  Haven't used it in years!  I used my Cricut, Cricut Design Studio and the George cartridge to cut out the frame around the large picture.

The title and mittens I have had forever.  Remember Rebecca Sower embellishments?  These embellishments are made of felt and were sold by EK Success.

I love the trim I used around the layout.  I bought several of these spools a few years ago at Joanns.  The "sweater" like rick rack is soft and reminds me of a pair of mittens.

The snowman I had in my stash.  Not sure who made it.  I did ink it a little to blend in with the colors on my layout.
