March Sketch +3 from Scrap Our Stash -Let it Snow!

I don't know about you, but I am SERIOUSLY LOVIN' this "NEW" Sketch PLUS 3 Challenge from Scrap Our Stash!  The added "3" items really help me to search through and use up some of my "STASH!"  I am finding things I didn't remember I had!!
HERE is the March Sketch +3

This month's sketch has lots of layers and a great opportunity to "go big"
or "go simple" - it is all up to YOU!  

Here is my take on March's Sketch +3

These are our 2 Silly Portuguese Water Dogs, Maggie and Valentino.  They LOVE the snow - I guess they just love water in any form!!  These photos were from our February 2016  "Blizzard!"
They really had "Snow Much Fun!"  I love this "Snow Patrol" collection from Simple Stories. I think it worked perfectly with the photos.
For my PLUS 3 I chose:
G- Graph Paper
H - Hearts
I - Ink and Ivory (base page)

I hope you will play along with us at SCRAP OUR STASH this month - give it a try and get a little "scrappy" with it!

Here are some close ups:
For the circle behind the photos, I took a grouping of chipboard circles that I painted with white pearl paint, and dabbed with Teal High Heal Glimmer Mist.  The "Let it Snow" title is a sticker from the Snow Patrol collection, that I matted onto a piece of green cardstock, and then inked around it with a little sponge applicator and Forest Moss Distress Stain.

Here is a close up of some of the layers and other stickers that I matted on cardstock.  I also distressed the edges of some of the papers as well.  The "BRRRR" tag with the different fibers as a pull, is where I will add some jounaling. It slips into a pocket I made under the paper and photos.

I thought the "Dashing through the snow" sticker worked perfectly by this photo of Tino and Maggie having fun!  I couldn't resist adding my favorite little snowman Olaf either!

Here you can see a close up of where I splattered the Teal High Heal Glimmer Mist on the Ivory base page, along with one of the wooden snowflakes that I painted and some bling!
