storage for my paper projects...come take a look!

2 snowy pages in one!

That's right, folks, I actually made a 2-page spread! My very first. Aw.
Here it is all together:


Sweet snow boy. Love these pictures. Left page:


Snow days bring out joy in everyone :)  Used my rockin' vintage typewriter for the journaling.
Right page:


The design is really, really simple, but I did add a lot of little layer-y details around the photos. The mix of alphas was not initially on purpose...those glitter thickers are some of my favorites...so I have two packs...but no "e" remains in either one, so I went ransom-style instead :)

Close-up:


The gold doily thingie is a rub-on from Hambly. Their stuff is really high-quality, but I had a heck of a time getting these dudes to rub on! Also here: Tim Holtz tissue tape, some stamping with pearl acrylic paint, and flocked lace and papers from We R Memory Keepers' Merry January line (cute title!).

I actually made this layout a couple months ago...but now it's Merry January, right? You can catch it in person at Scrappy Chic. When I get it home again, I'm planning on adding some stitching with gold thread. Didn't have any when I made it, but I do now.

Well, have a happy evening. Andrew goes back to school tomorrow, so we're gonna mourn celebrate with some Mexican take-out. Yum.

Love it!
Things I am jealous of:
1) your vintage typewriter
2) your awesome ransom-style title
3) that fabulous paper!

We celebrated Sunday Stinkies with some Mexican tonight, too! Oh, and I should add:
4) the fact that you still have vacation days left!

Soooo good. That title is perfect and I like that you did not intend to do ransom style - isn't so cool how the workarounds can totally make a page?! Plus, a typewriter?!!! Oh, and I love that PP too...I bought me some of it as well :>)

Ang, it's hard to believe this incredible double layout is your first! I love the colours, the tape, the typewriter journaling, the rub-on doily, thickers, photos... everything!
