Here is a fun winter layout I created for the Echo Park Paper Company WINTER WISHES Project Challenge over at Two Peas in a Bucket.


Lately, I’ve been getting lots and lots of inspiration and ideas from Ashley Calder’s designs.  She  loves to include  fair ribbons on her layouts and some poetry or prose for her journaling.  You should defintely check out her blog THINGS THAT SHINE and I know you’ll be inspired too! 


I thought our funny little snowman deserved a prize!  I create this fair ribbon by gathering a tissue trim from Claudine Hellmuth’s Holly Jolly Holiday kit, topped with a Vintage Style button from Jenni Bowlin Studio, and layered over paper ribbon I cut from the Echo Park WINTERWISHES line with  added white dashes.


Yes, I’ve been known to write a bit of poetry in my day!

UPDATE:  I was announced one of three winners for this challenge!!  Thanks 2Peas….yippeee!!!!

    Lovely layout for your sweet man of snow. You have inspired me to scrap the pics of my DGD and her cute little man of snow. I, too, admire Ashley’s Things That Shine. Thanks for the inspiration! Bonnie
