February Top Five #4 - Ice & Snow

As part of my year of INSPIRATION, each month I am challenging myself to scrap my Top Five (photos or stories or events) from the previous month.

Since February ended with a bout of wintry weather here in Texas, I chose that as one of my top five. I'm not much for getting out in the cold weather, so I only had a few photos that I'd snapped from the doorway. I decided to create an 8x8 digital layout using Template #100 from Get It Scrapped, which caught my eye as I was browsing blog land last week. I used some digital papers from my stash and ended up with this layout.

I printed this 8x8 page at home and decided to add a little extra to it before putting it in our 2015 album. I chalked the edges and adhered some glittery snowflakes.

I like how the snowflakes add glitter and dimension to the layout while the chalked edges add a nice border to the page.

Do you add traditional elements to your digital layouts?

Well, I don't do digital, but I did have a go at using this template as a sketch for Get It Scrapped. I love what you've done with it..Template 100 is certainly worth celebrating I think

This made me laugh! You'd be housebound for months if you lived in the northeast!

I have many, many photos of ice and snow...living in Michigan it's typical. I really like the colors you used on your page, it really gave it a chilly feel.
