Snowball fight!

I'm still using the Jack Frost kit from Elle's Studio, so fabulous!  ANYWAY, I think these are the last of my snow pictures from last year, these crack me up--especially the one where my son has evidence of being nailed right on the chest!  I used my cricut to cut some snowflakes & the buttons, twine are from my stash, everything else is from the kit. 
 closeups of course!
 added a little bling:
these are some of my favorite pictures because this was one of the first times I took my new camera out for a photo shoot! :)  One other little note, the small picture on the top is popped up with pop dots--love that affect gives you something interesting to look at!

I wanted to share real quick is how I finish the back of my layouts when I have a bunch of stitching.  It looks like a mess.  I carefully pull the front piece of thread through the back.  (gently pull the back thread and it will cause the thread to "bubble"pull that all the way through until you have both of the pieces of thread to the back)
 Then I tie them in a square knot.  Right over left and left over right.  I have tried many different ways to adhere my string to the back this way seems to keep it tight on the front.  Hope this little tutorial helps, AND makes sense! :)

Thanks so much for the visit-hope you have a good one!

That photo is awesome! And the layout is so fun--I love the punched border on the bottom--kinda looks like snow drifts/hills :)

Love the page! And I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I am sad we don't have any snow here yet in upstate NY. I miss taking those pictures!

Love that page and all your fun touches. I finally took that kit out of the box. Need to use it. I love gray and blue together.
