Mt.Hood SNOW!

Hi crafty friends! Just sharing a layout I  finished 2 nights ago using some  brand new Authentique winter collection papers that I got at my LSS, Scrapping Frenzy. They are a winter-holiday themed set but I was trying to use them for something non-christmassy, and I think it turned out pretty well. Also I did a 2 page layout which I haven't been doing a lot of lately and I am really happy with how it looks. The soft color palette really let the awesome pictures shine as the 'stars' of my pages! So here are a few peeks. Sorry about  the not-so great pics. I was trying to get some mid-morning in my crafts room window before the sun faded, and the clouds were going in and out. 

 I was given 3 12x12 sheets of paper and half of an elements sticker sheet. I used 2 of the papers as my backgrounds and the other sheet I fussy cut some elements from and combined them with the stickers. To add some more subtle colors I used 2 other pieces of patterned paper from MME's 29th Street Market collection. Here are a few close ups of each page: 
 And some close ups of my clusters, sorry a few of the pics are blurry!

 This one for some reason is upside down! ARGH! stupid iphone. this one sits atop one picture that I layered  under it with a brown paper back, cheesecloth, some tickets from Purple Pumpkin, a resin embellishment, flowers, and vintage buttons. I really like the subtle color combo!

 I really like this shot! It was a good detail one that turned out great with all the textures!

And that is all for today! I hope I inspired you to get scrapping this weekend! I really enjoyed scrapping these photos of my trip this past November to Portland, Oregon with my fiancee. It was one of the only times I've seen real snow on a mountain, since I've grown up in the South. I can't wait till we move there and I will get to have 'real season's all year round!!! I still have so many more from our trip but these were some of my favorite! Have a great day, until next time, PEACE Y'ALL~ VV
