A Winter's Tale

This is a second and rather late in the day post from me!

If you're looking for this month's Inspiration Elevator challenge.....please scroll down or click here.

Otherwise stick around as I have another layout to share.

The reason for my late appearance is that firstly, I've been meaning to share this page FOREVER, and secondly, I wanted to submit it for the upcoming edition of the Let's Get Sketchy Get Inspired magazine, and the closing date for that!

Last minute of course - no surprise for me!

Anyhow, let me get on with some details.

This layout happens to be the first page I created using my recent DT Kit from Two Scrapbook Friends.  This time around I had the pleasure of working with the yummy new Christmas collection from Simple Stories......Cozy Christmas.

I loved the combination of woodgrains, glittery prints and traditional red, green and gold colour schemes throughout.........visions of a log cabin Christmas come to mind.

I had one of my 'struck with inspiration whilst lying in bed moments' for this page which if nothing else, usually means the outcome is interesting!

A Winter's Tale.

I do love how this turned out - pretty close to what I envisioned in my head for a change!

There's obviously lots (and lots!) of torn layers including patterned paper, corrugated paper and zipper trim from Maya Road.

I happened to have a few zipper pulls in my stash, so I added one of those too along with a little faux stitching.

There's 'snow' on there, in the form of Martha Stewart Texture Paste and a Tim Holtz stencil.

Lots of layers were provided by a few patterned papers, enamel dots, and the ecclectic die cut pack you can find with this collection.

As you can see I also trimmed the photo into a 'tag' shape to add a little interest.

Finally, the simple title was cut using my Silhouette and layered with glitter cardstock.

That's about all.......probably one of my faves for this year I think.

If you are local and would like to create your own version of this page, Two Scrapbook Friends are holding a workshop at 6.00pm on Wednesday 3rd December where you can do just that!  You can contact the store for more details or to reserve your spot.

So, onto the second reason for my late post.

As mentioned, I am submitting this page to the Let's Get Sketchy Get Inspired Magazine in the hope that I may get lucky and achieve another publication.

This is an awesome online publication full of lots of inspiration from crafty gals far and wide.  I was totally over the moon when the last edition was released and yours truly found she had made the cover!!

Totally honoured and thrilled to bits!

Anyhow, the next edition will be brimming with seasonal goodies, so my page will be submitted to their 'Mood Board' challenge.

Here is said board:

Fingers crossed but I look forward to the next issue regardless.

OK, I think that's just about covered everything so it's time for PJ's and a little snack for this gal.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I'll see you next week,
