(Pre)-Mitten Weather!

I had some fun working with Cosmo Cricket's collection called "Mitten Weather" last night.  What a beautiful line of papers this collection has!  It was fun to mix all of the different papers.  The great thing about the line is that there are two distinctly, yet coordinating color schemes.  The card below was also made using Mitten Weather.
On my first layout, to make the adorable little embellishments that are on & surround the snowflake, I watched a tutorial from Die Cuts With A View (DCWV) and they came together so well!  It was really easy and I like the dimension that it adds to the page.  Here is a link if you'd like to try it yourself...  I had a few papers left over and wanted to scrap this picture I took of the snowman my kids built last year (below).  I have never scrapped an 8X10 print so this was a bit of a challenge to play with.  In the end, I was pleased with the result.

I am hoping to get a few pages for my December album completed tomorrow!  If I do, I will post them later.  Thanks for checking in!
