To get my scrappy brain in gear after our 2-week Christmas break, I turned to a PageMap sketch, from November 2012.
I was also inspired by Tracey Gregory's layout from this month's ScrapThat! kit club that has cut out circles in the design. You can click HERE to visit Tracey's blog and see her wonderful layout.
Here is what I came up with...
There are a couple of ski hills right here in our city, and we sometimes go to the smallest one for some serious sledding action. I took this photo of BabyOfTheFamily during on of our trips to the hill. Sad to say, most of my sledding pics did not turn out great that day.
The kit includes this awesome sticker sheet, along with patterned papers, Bazzill card stock, ribbons, bling, glitter paper, vellum snowflakes....
Here is a closer look at the cut-out circle windows...
I designed a winter scene with the stickers to create a title element...
I thought I'd share how I designed those circle windows..
My 'old school' Coluzzle....to cut out the circles.
Scrapbook Adhesives 3L 'Crafty Foam Tape' works really well to lift the entire piece.
Square pieces of Winter Wishes patterned paper.
The white paper with circles is placed on top.

Prima Crystals are also in the kit...which I added to each circle window scene.
