Snow Much Fun ~ Layout!

Hi Everyone, happy Monday!  Welcome to My Creative Time's Scrapping the Little Things!  Each Monday, some of us on the design team will be showing you different layouts using Project Life style or Smash Books layouts.
Even though I wasn't on today's schedule, I couldn't help but join in!  It feels so good to get pages completed!  I have decided to use Echo Parks Photo Freedom protectors!  I really love them!
I used My Creative Time "Cherish This Moment" stamp set for the journaling lines and the "stinkin' cute" stamp!

The wonderful thing about this style of scrapping is that you can whip through your pages so fast!  I found these old pictures from 1996!  I had already scraped them for both of my girl's albums, so when I opened the envelope I saw that I had already cropped some of them into ovals.  At first I was kind of bummed, but then I realized that I could still use them.  Ideally I wouldn't have the pictures that way, but I didn't want to throw them away either!

For the little plum snowflakes I used "It's a Magical Season" stamp set.  Then for "January" and the "year" I used "Whimsical Calender" and "Just Simply Live"!

I added a bit of stickles, thin hemp and sparkly buttons for glitz!  And lastly I'm lovin' that I can still use my Cricut with this style.  Did you know that you can mix and match the protectors?  What that means is, that you can still do traditional scrapping, since Echo Park offers different style of pockets, including a full 12x12!

Adorable PL pages, Liz! Okay, first I have to say how much I love your pics, and you haven't changed a bit since 1996! Perfect elements, and I'm diggin' your old school ovals!

Very nice, Liz! Looks like you had a lot of fun! I didn't think about just getting the 12x12 pockets and just making you layout look like it's all those little pockets. Well, I have a bunch to use up before getting new. I like that you did mostly pics. I've seen some with all "fillers" and I like seeing the pics best. Great job!

I really like the look of the cropped pictures as a collage letting pattern paper show more. The Snow Much Fun is so pretty. Great job on your pages.
