happy... 37

Hi there! Happy the weekend is here! I'm very excited to be joining along with the creative and super talented DT at Scrap Africa! Yahooooo! The team always provides amazing samples of inspiration and I enjoy joining along with their challenges whenever time permits! For the current challenge, the ladies at Scrap Africa are asking us to create a layout based on the pretty inspiration photo shown below while keeping in mind the the theme ~ "White with a pinch of" - 90% white project with 10% colours!
In all honesty, white space scares my crafty self! ;0 LOL I was trembling over the thought of creating a layout with only using 10% colour but once I faced my fears and started looking at my supplies for inspiration, my layout came together rather smoothly and I'm delighted with the outcome :)

For my sample, I scrapped a layout featuring a photo of Connor that was taken while on a ski trip years ago. 
I started with a pretty piece of 13 arts patterned paper, gave it a white wash coat of acrylic paint then added texture and design using the Petal Circles Stencil.
All the snowflakes were die cut using Simon Says Stamp Fun Flakes Snowflakes dies and pretty 13 arts patterned paper. 
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with Memuaris.blogspot.com
Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to visit the Scrap Africa blog for some fab inspiration and for complete details on how you can join along too!
Be Sweet ;)
