Critter Challenge Blog - Challenge #27

So this week, is a challenge near and dear to my heart. I love to scrapbook for my boys.. and I'm not afraid to use some bling on their pages. They actually love it! So.. if you've read between the lines... you may have guessed our challenge.. this week, we have been challenged to create a man or boy card or scrapbook page. AND!! the twist is it must contain the use of glitter. Tricky, tricky!!!!! Think outside of the box!!!! Your glitter can be Stickles or anything that shimmers.

This is a simple, yet fun layout. These are my boys and nephew, who managed to get outside on the only day we had snow this past winter. When I saw this paper (on clearance) at my LSS.. the extra wording popped right into my head and I knew I had to have this paper.. especially since it was on sale!

Below the "in the winter we can build a snowman" that was printed on the paper when purchased, I added "except this year the only snow we got was too wet! Winter 2010"
(The pictures were taken in January).

So for my "glitter".. I have Stickled the snowman's heart and hat in Burgandy, his nose in Orange Peel, his hat in Black Diamond, and outlined him and the snow in Frosted Lace.
Paper is 3 bugs in a Rug - Let is Snow and the mat is Coredinations - Poinsettia
