For my layout I flipped the sketch around a bit and used one photo rather than two.
I love the dark woodgrain for the background and it really sets off the snowflakes and stamped words when you heat emboss in white. I chose to paint the big Maya Road snowflakes with white paint and then sand them.
For the title I used the snow day wood veneer and although the photo just doesn't show much, I used crackle accents first and sprinkled a bit of snow flakes onto it. It really looks a bit icy in person.
This little deer banner is borrowed from my December kit "Home for the Holidays". That kit is sold out but the awesome add on kit with all the die cuts and goodies is still available HERE.
