Challenge YOUrself Blog Announcement and -December "Snowflake" Challenge #72

Hi everyone!  Happy December!  
I am so happy to be continuing on with the amazingly talented Design Team over at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!!  I look forward to sharing another year of happy scrappy FUN - and inspiring YOU and challenging YOU to get out IN FRONT of that camera, and share YOUr layouts with us!

This month's challenge is to use Snowflakes on your layout and BE SURE to include YOU in one of the photos too!

I used a black and white photo of my hubby and I while we were "down the shore" this past winter, for a get-away weekend to celebrate his birthday.  I decided to keep with the black and white theme, and found some fun chipboard and wooden elements that I painted white and embellished.  Here is my Design Team inspiration layout for you:
I am always making my hubby take selfies with me - he is such a good sport!  I love this SELFIE Paper by Reminisce and all the fun sayings on it!  I picked a few other black and white patterned papers and layered them under the photo.

Here are some close-ups for you:

I love this snowflake corner flourish - I added dimension to the snowflakes using Nuvo Simply White Crystal Drops.

 After painting this chipboard white - I hit it with brushed pewter Distress Stain. I filled in the hearts that were on the chipboard circle with Nuvo Ebony Black Crystal Drops to add dimension - I love how it pulled in the white paint when it dried and created the surprise marble effect!!
