Montreal in the Snow

This is the layout I have made for the Scrapology February Scraplift Challenge. The original layout we scraplifted was created by Laura Buckingham and taught at the Cardinal Colours Seaside Retreat back in September (There is another retreat planned for this September and just a few places left if you are interested.) 

Here is Laura's original layout:

... and the sketch created for the challenge. 

This is the layout I made in Laura's class. I used a photo of my daughter Catherine when we were high up over Montreal surrounded by snow. I thought the colours were perfect for these papers.

I decided to sick with the theme and made one for my other daughter, Emily at the same spot, changing the papers to go with Emily's top. These papers are left overs of Scenic Route papers. I used a lot of different border punches for the paper strips, then added a strip of glittery snowflake ribbon and some Bazzill 'just the edge decorative strips. I threaded some finer ribbon through the strip near the bottom of the layout.  The title is American Crafts Thickers in a velvet finish, and the journalling is written straight onto the photo with a Sharpie Pen. Some stickles and gems and the layout is done!


  1. 2 really great layouts from the sketch..I love the strips of patterned paper and writing on the photo..thanks for sharing..I am inspired to have a go myself! Karen x

  2. Really enjoyed this class at the retreat. Your version here is lovely and shows how different papers change a LO completely.

  3. they are great layouts :) loved this class at the retreat and I have done it again for the challenge :)

  4. Lovely L.O's, love that the colours go with our famous G.A.P jumpers. Can't believe we went all the way to Canada and I forgot a coat. xx
