Sketches in the snow...

As the big thaw begins I took on mission #032 sketch challenge on http://www.twistedsketches.com/
I used stamps to make a polka dot boarder and then a boarder down the right hand side alternating black and bronze ink. I use stamps on most of my layouts and these are Making Memories acrylic stamps which I use on just about every layout.
I used clock cardstock which I got in a bumper pack from Costco. It led me to the title - Snow time like the Present. I used thickers and then outlined the title in silver gel pen. I was pleased with the overall effect and that I managed to avoid usual snow layout colours like white and pale blue. I only wish the picture did it justice, I even added white glitter to the edge of the clock cut out, but it doesn't show up!
I enjoyed this challenge and it didn't take me long to get inspired!


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE the thickers! they are just so awesome! and totally make your page, I like the use of your mini calendar too dating the page, what a great idea! I like your polka BORDER too..yes Mrs English teacher Ide take note a border on a page is spelt like this as opposed to Boarder!! you absolute classic x
