Baby, It’s Cold Outside – Let’s Capture These Sketches/The Paper Variety

The Paper Variety’s challenge this week is to create a paper based project inspired by a Christmas song title or lyrics. So I kept that in mind as I created this layout of my youngest son last winter in his first bunting. He hated that thing, but he was sooo cute in it! LOL I remember he kept looking at us accusingly, like he was thinking, “How COULD you”? The song, Baby It’s Cold Outside, kept popping in my head, so I’m hoping it counts though it’s not really a Christmas song. It’s a winter song that’s often played around Christmas?

This is my dt project for this week’s sketch by Charlotte at Let’s Capture These Sketches:

Materials:

Fancy Pants Hot Chocolate pp

Always Together – Sketchy Thursdays 9.15 sketch and ScrapFIT

Sketchy Thursdays has partnered up with ScrapFIT this week for their challenge! Simply combine sketch 9.15 from Sketchy Thursdays with the theme “Friendship” for twice the chance to win. Full details are on their blogs.

For my take on the sketch, I went with the fab Max and Mollie line by Nikki Sivils. I added some stitching to accentuate the sunrays that are part of the paper’s design, fussy cut a few details to layer (the sun and 2 of the flowers) and cut out the cutie Max and Mollie characters from the cut apart page. Then, all it needed was an MME (My Mind’s Eye) Stella and Rose journal spot, the packaging from some Prima bling and a little Cosmo Cricket sticker for the journaling area. 😀 The rhinestones are by Queen and Co. The journaling reads, “Just 13 mths apart, you two do everything together & are the best of friends. We were so worried you 2 would have trouble adjusting to being separated that we started Matthew in PreK early.” Here’s the layout I created based on the theme from ScrapFIT and sketch 9.15 from Sketchy Thursdays:

Adhesives:

Helmar Adhesive Runner
Helmar Acid Free Glue
Helmar Gemstone Glue

Tools:

EK Success border punch
