Winter Fun

Good Morning my scrappy friends!  Another bitterly cold day here in NJ.  The weather is bringing us some freezing rain to go on top of the 6" of snow we received the other day.  I don't like the heat and humidity of the summer, but some warmer temps right now would be lovely!

Since school was canceled on Friday due to a snow storm, and I don't drive on snow/ice covered roads, I've been busy scrapping, playing with the kids, and watching movies with the husband.  Here is a double layout I finished yesterday...lots of distressing and messiness! 

Each page is meant for different challenges on blogs.  Using the first page of my double, I entered the Scrappy Friends challenge of 2014!  4 blog challenges for one LO!  So much fun ~  I flipped the sketch for my photos from Brenda's challenge; used the burgundy, light green, and blues for Kelly's color challenge; used the words "winter" and "fun" from Kristi's word challenge; and used the bottom row of bingo for Rochelle's challenge - mist, 3 photos, buttons. 

Here is the original sketch from Granddiva- Brenda:
The color challenge from Kelly:

The word art challenge from Kristi B:

And Tic Tac Toe challenge from Rochelle:

Now for the second page of my double layout, I'm entering ~
> Sketches4All Brandi's challenge - Once Upon A Theme - Cheers
> Two Scrapbook Friends - distressing
> Simple Sketches #19 - sketch challenge

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you try out some of these fantastic challenges!
