First Layout for The Paper Variety

Im sooo excited! This is my first layout for The Paper Variety! Here is the first challenge of the new year!

Pretty easy this time of year huh?! Here is my example.

 I took a picture of my puppies (Lucy and Snoopy) during our first (and so far, ONLY!) snow this year. I was so happy they posed so nicely for me! Our lovely sponsor this month is:

How awesome is that? Love Love Love Basic Grey!
Here is a close up of the title. Want to know how I created the "snow" on the Making Memories letters? Easy!
 I mixed white glue (I used Martha's Glitter Glue) and white paint! Once it's good and mixed, use a paint brush and blob (technical term!) it where snow would normally "collect". Then before it dries shake some glitter on the glue/paint. It gives a great shimmery, dimensional effect.
Can't wait to see what you create with this challenge! Happy Scrapping!

  2. Amy I love your layout!! I think the way you added the "snow" to your letters was a brilliant idea. ;)
