Always Crafting: Whimsical Wednesday Winter Challenge

Thanks to Always Crafting for a great challenge.

Stephanie is having a Whimsical Wednesday challenge of "Make a scrapbook page/pages of any size that is winter themed (include the winter holidays too)"

This challenge was perfect for me to start my 'Honeymoon' album (which was 5 years ago, but never mind) We choose New Zealand to see, feel and experience snow for the first time.  It was exciting going back down memory lane.

Regarding the journalling notes - I gave that job to my husband, so when he wrote 'hot wife' I thought that was really sweet so I just had to put that down! 

I've used the When it's Cold Outside cricut cartridge for the snow flakes.  For the second page, I used Stickles Star Dust on the snow flakes to make them look more icy. The big snow flake on the first page is a rub on with embellishments of ski's and a ski jacket. 

My journal tags are cut from my Creative Memories Tag Maker Punch with some 'snow' looking ribbon.  I have inked around the edging of my journal tags and the first and third pages with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink. 

Thanks to Always Crafting for a fun challenge.
