Baby It's Cold Outside

I made this layout with 3 Birds on Parade (although I used a couple of other carts too) for the Exploring Cricut challenge to make a winter scene.  I plan to put some pics of the kids playing in the snow and sledding on it.   I love 3 Birds on Parade-the birds are so funny!  Great titles too.   The background paper is from The Paper Studio.  I am also going to link this to the SOUS challenge to use a diecut snowflake on a project.

I used Everyday Paperdolls for the skis and Winter Frolic for the sled (it's actually in one of the borders), plus some stickle at the edge of the snow.  The snowflakes are from the CM Cheerful Seasons cart.

3 Birds on Parade-Snow Day cut at 3 inches, Baby It's Cold Outside cut at 2 1/2 inches, birds cut at 5 inches
Everyday Paperdolls-skis cut at 3 inches on real dial size
Winter Frolic-sled cut at 1 1/2 inches
CM Cheerful Seasons-snowflakes, one at 3 inches and one at 3 1/2 inches
Paper-The Paper Studio, plus assorted cardstock from my stash
stickle in Frosted Lace and brown chalk ink in Jumbo Java for edges
