Creative Belli Challenge 108- SNOW!

Hi there, and happy Wednesday. I don't know if this sounds bad, but I am so happy to be back on our schedule. I always said I would never be one of "those moms" who can't wait for their kids to go back to school. Well...I should have learned...but never say never! Not that I don't' want the kids home, just that our normal routine is so thrown off. I didn't even know what day it was last week...lol. Well, thankfully we are back to our normal crazy lives. School, dance, gymnastics, girl scouts, etc. Today is a new challenge for you over at the Creative Belli Challenge. This time around we want to see SNOW! Not the real cold wet stuff (I have enough of that outside), but some sort of snow embellishments on your project. Now...remember, we don't want to see that brand new snowflake paper you got for Christmas, or new snowflake brads. We want to see the stuff you got LAST year, or even before that. So crack open that ribbon drawer, dig to the bottom and pull out some old snow ribbon or any other snow related embellishment you have in your stash. Here is what I came up with. I started with some snowflake PP...okay I will admit this is not that old, but it was all I had. Next I layered that onto some light blue CS, and onto a white CS base. I cut the circles using punches, and my Creative Memories cutting system. I stamped the penguin (which is a Sweet 'n Sassy image) onto the white circle, and colored him with watercolor crayons. I also paper pieced his scarf. I stamped the snowflakes (from Maya Road) onto the blue CS, and embossed with white embossing powder (that I have had for literally years). I added some stickles to the snowflakes for sparkle. Last I added the snowflake eyelets...which I bought over the summer because I had to have them, and now they sit in a jar on top of my storage unit and collect dust. So I thought this was the perfect time to crack them out.
Alright...your turn! First, head on over to the Creative Belli Challenge blog, and check out what the other Belli Girls have come up with. Then, create your own SNOW themed project, and link it up so we can see what you came up with.
