Happy Chilly Thursday!

Brrr, it's cold outside! Being a California girl, this transition to Wyoming winter is an adventure! But despite the temperatures, the scenery is just goregous! I was so happy with the picture I shared with you the other day that I decided to use my winter shots for this week's Sketchy Thursday challenge.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my take:

The three photos are of three different trees, but I love how they look like a panoramic photo of the same tree. I'm usually one to finish a layout and leave it be, but later I just had to add the fuchsia rhinestones to my medium snowflakes (even though it was after I sent my picture to Diana).

Instead of using a rectangle of patterned paper, I chose to cluster my embellies - bling, snowflakes of all sizes, and handmade yo-yos - in a rectangular area.

I scrunched vintage seam binding and knotted satin ribbon, had to use Thickers for my title (they just call to me, you know?), and added journaling strips. I added "snow" (Mudd Puddles) to a few areas of the layout, then covered it in icicle Stickles for more sparkle.

Sponsoring Sketchy Thursdays this week is a fellow Etsy shop, goshery. Come play along for a chance to win an embellishment kit! And I had so much fun making those little yo-yos, that if you play along at Sketchy Thursdays this week and then come back here to let me know, I will randomly select a comment to this post to win a set of handmade yo-yos.

Now get scrapping! Tessa
