The Boys (MME February Challenge)

Once or twice a year I get overwhelmed by the amount of scrap stuff I have (and I have nothing compared to most scrappers and card makers, I promise you) and clean out. I give away to school and activity centers and enjoy the Having Less.

But there are collections I hang onto and refuse to give away, no matter how tiny the scraps are,  because I love them too much and know I will find  use of them one day. The MME On The Bright Side collection is one of them. I just love the bright, happy colors, and the mix of patterns, and I really wished I had bought more when it was available.

My boys love snow, and spend lots of time outdoors when we have it, even if it isn't huge amounts - they take advantage of every single inch. They sledge, ski and just have fun. They know how to dress outdoors, but for some reason they favourite bonnets are, in my opinions, the ugliest ones there are to buy. But as long as they are happy with them...

I snapped a few photos of them in December when we had the first "real" snow. Even if the photos aren't too good, I love the happy colors in them, and the MME papers was just the perfect match.

Patterned papers, buttons, brad & cut outs: MME. Chipboard: Imaginarium Designs. Ink: Rangers

Chipboard and buttons add dimension to the layout

I got the idea for this layout when I saw the MME February Sketch Challenge. I replaced the three landscape oriented photos with two portrait oreiented ones, but sticked pretty close to the sketch exept for that.

Thank you for stopping by - you know I appreciate it!

Hehe Hilde, I can relate to your need to reduce your stash, it happens to me a couple of times each year too. But I also have certain papers I could never part with! Love this LO, the colours are perfect, happy and bright, a great foil for the white.

Kjempeflott side og jeg er full av forståelse for at du vill redusere stashen. Jag kan knappt finne det jeg leter etter i rotet mitt! Samtidig er det såååå mye som jeg er gla' i!
En liten del av det kommer jeg til å gi bort nu i helgen når det er blog hop!
