Today is a gift !

Finally cutting into my Snow Day collection prize by Crate Paper , 
that I won for one of their recent blog contests !
 I had an impromptu photo shoot with DD on Sunday - new pics , new inspo ! 
Then  I wondered what new papers that I haven't used & would fit these pics . 
I was bent on making mainly Christmas projects with the Snow Day line
( & I haven't started yet ! ) 
that I didn't think of doing a layout first. 
Nevertheless , inspired by scrappy friends , such as Ms Piradee in this case- 
 who's excellent at putting a twist to her patterned papers use in layouts - 
I attempted a non-themed layout with a Christmas line 
and am quite happy with the result ! 

Still loving the naked chippie look , this time I tried out a little stamping with new Prima floral stamps - used a floral center on the Magistical Memories' Mod Flower here. 

On this smaller Mod Flower , I tried out a busier floral design ( Prima stamp )
 with a fabric brad center to finish it . 
Lots of Such Sweet Tierney buttons here together 
with the different types of Snow Day embellies I received. 

Layout design inspired by Michelle Fowler's sketch here.

Hi Pearl!! Totally loving this LO!!! Wonderful colours and such sweet pics of your daughter! I too am loving the look of naked chipboard. I noticed that Piradee does wonderful things with it! I bought some of this Crate line specifically to use for nature photos. I think I'll keep some for cards too. It is a very versatile line! Have a great day! :)
