Singing in the...snow?

When I went on my scrap weekend a couple weeks back, I made a fatal packing error: I didn't bring any patterned paper. True, I brought some GCD Studios paper to use for a few specified pages, and a couple Studio Calico kits, but that was it.

So when I pulled out my ice skating photos to scrap, I had only the two kits to delve into. The problem? They were appropriately named Into the Woods and Singing in the Rain. The first didn't work, so I pulled out the latter to see what I could make work for snow pictures.

Here's what I did (click on the image to see it closer):


This is one of my 100 moments pages, number 8, as you can see. I'm not sure what year these photos are from, or even when the actual event happened, but it really doesn't matter.

I misted the kraft paper with Studio Calico white mist, just to add a little brrr...

I'm amazed that the back of the striped Webster's Pages paper looks so much like snow! And I loved the die cut fortune that seemed to fit so well with the story. The number 8 is from the same chipboard as the title; I removed the fabric and painted it.


I painted the Pink Paislee metal banner with a Jenni Bowlin paint dauber, Chili Powder, I believe. I scraped a little off the edges to show some silver, then added the letter stickers.
