Winter Chill-Impression Obsession's first Challenge for 2015

Happy New Year!

I'm starting off the New Year by sharing a pretty clean and simple Scrapbook Page that I created for the Impression Obsession Winter Chill Challenge.

I started with a base Paper from the Paper Loft Great Outdoors Collection (Dusty Roads). I used the darker side as a base and the other side of the double sided paper to cut the snowflakes from the following Impression Obsession Dies:

I Drybrushed some white paint to act as a bit of a frame for my picture of Sweet Sydney!!!
She is just the cutest little Fur Baby EVER!!!!  {Especially with that nose full of snow!}

To add a little more texture, I stamped some Snowflakes onto the page using these two stamps
(note: I stamped off before stamping on the page, to get a lighter image)

I was inspired by the Prima December Sketch, however I kept it a little cleaner

The Damask Snowflake acts as a base for this gorgeous sentiment!

I don't have a link for the Sentiment as it's a sneak peek of what's coming in the January CHA release. I just LOVE that sentiment!

I couldn't resist but add that touch of drybrusing under the sentiment as well. It gives an "in motion" feeling to that section of the page.

Finally I completed the page by adding a few Prima Flowers to fill, along with some Prima Crystals.

I'm quite pleased with how the page turned out. It's been awhile since I scrapped!
