Ready for Snow

This layout featuring a very grumpy Nick last January all dressed to go out and play with the aftermath of the Blizzard of  '16 was created for the CSI Case File #222  http://csichallenge.blogspot.com/2017/01/case-file-no-222-deadline-january-31.html

I used all of the colors: light grey, black, pale powder blue, white and cardinal red.

My Evidence:
Something fuzzy (the jute)

My Testimony:
Something about Winter

I started by applying Tumbled Glass distressed ink through a stencil on white cardstock. I tore a sheet of pattern paper (Good Tidings from Kaisercraft's Silver Bells collection) in two and placed the smaller piece on top of the larger and stamped a corner image on top.
The photo was matted with black cardstock, glued to a piece of packaging and wrapped in a length of fuzzy jute.
I covered the Maya Road chipboard snowflakes with gesso and then with glitter and allowed them to dry before gluing them to the page.
The journaling strips were printed on plain cardstock, lightly inked and taped next to the photo.


  1. This is a beautiful clean and simple layout with great impact. Love the photo, can see hes really just not loving having to wear all the gear. Thanks for joining us at CSI challenges

  2. Simple, and yet such a pretty design. I love the starkness of the black and white photo. The soft blue stencil pattern is really nice as a backdrop. I love the pop of colour that
    the red string brings. Cute photo. He does not look impressed at having to be bundled up for the cold. ☺. TFS.

  3. Peggy just a gorgeous layout. You have linked it into case file 223 and it needs to be re linked to 222. I would hate for you to miss out on the chance of getting a prize. Thanks for playing along with us at CSI

  4. Awwww, what a cute photo! I am so with him on this one...!

  5. Such an adorable photo. Love the simplicity of your page that puts the spotlight on your picture! And your poem is priceless--made me laugh! So happy to have you playing with us at CSI!
