Because one isn't enough!

Okay, so call me crazy!  I have a blog already.  I know!  I decided to start another one for all of my scrappy pleasures (thus the title) that I make just for fun. 
So, here is my first one - a sketch from Sketches in Thyme:
I went with some snowy photos for this and a cool but refreshing blue/purple color combo.  I had this paper in a Basic Grey paper pack that I got from the CKC Convention this spring. 
Okay so these are just some fun pics of us out playing in the snow with our daughter and her friend.  I really love this purple and blue paper from Basic Grey - it looks like a pattern on one of my winter wool skirts - so it has a warm, cozy look.  I decided to use the spots on the side for snowflakes, but since they were so big, I just let half of them peek out from the photo mat.  On the sticker I added a little flocking and then backed it on the new pennant die cut coming in July from Stampin' Up.
Here's a little closeup.
