Fun in the Snow

It's Tara's turn at being the Host over at Sunday Stamps this week and she has a great color combination for us to work with...

I'm always a little nervous when I have to use Real Red - but I'm pleased with what I came up with this week - I even used more red than just a teeny tiny bit!  Once again, I've created an MDS layout that is all ready to be filled with pictures as the occasion occurs.  I'm planning to put some pictures in here of Elliot in the snow. 

I've added some stitching along my polka dot layer - and I learned a technique for "cutting" the edges of the MDS ribbon.

So - give our colour combo a try this week.  If you're looking for more inspiration, you can check out the projects the rest of the Design Team has come up with....

Holly Endress - Hollybeary Creations
Tara (Murphy) Bourgoin - Can't Stamp the Rain
Monica Hornof - Stamps'n Jewels
Steph - Hofkissed

***Don't forget we are offering up 2/$25 Stampin'Up! Gift Certificates this month.  Each time you enter a challenge you are entered to win***
So settle down in your craft room this week - and post your link over at Sunday Stamps so we can see what you've created.

Thanks for stopping by

Oh, I LOVE what you have done with the colours - and the 'cut' ribbon technique is fantastic. Must remember to try that :) Your pages are so fun and happy, Joan! I love them.

The more I see from you MDS loving ladies the more I am inspired to give it a go! Perhaps I should go take advantage of the upgrade... Hmmm you have given me something to think about :) Beautiful layout!

Great layout and I love all the red you've used! Real Red is a pretty bright colour, but it works so well here!
