Winter Wonderland 12x12 Page Layout

Happy Wednesday friends! I had some time to play yesterday ... Don't you love those days?  When you can sneak in a bit of time, in the middle of the chaos, to just do what you love to do?  I made myself take a break.  I just wanted to create something.  Something smaller than an album, but not as small as a card, and this is what I came up with!

Something about pattern paper calms me (and straight lines, LOL).  So creating this layout was very relaxing.  As I was cutting the 1/2" strips, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but it came together and I love the result.

Full disclosure ... I'm not really good at perfectly lined up corners, so most of the strips were a bit wonky.  But as I always say, there should be no stress with paper and glue. So, I came up with a solution to cut thin 1/4" strips of white paper to cover my mismatched corners, added a bit of sparkle with gems, and all was good!  

Below is a picture before I added the white strips and pretty rows of gems :). Yikes!

I got a little over zealous with the gems and added them to my flowers too.  Hey, it's all good!  A girl needs a little bling in her life!

This little girl.  Oh how she has my heart.  Standing in the middle of a rare Georgia snowfall, with her Anna boots and "Frozen" dress, singing "Let It Go"!  So when my page corners didn't match up perfectly, I decided to let it go!!!  Doing so led me to a result that I like even more.  

So, let it go my friends! Slap the paper down, enjoy the process, and have FUN with it!
