Hello snow (Chic Tags sketch challenge)

We still haven't much snow in my part of Norway, which means we have to seek it if we want to go skiing.
Last weekend hubby and youngest kid went up with a friend to his cabin in the mountains, and there surely was snow there!

Background paper: Dotted papers (on snowflakes) & Tags: Chic Tags. Crochet doilies: MME. Chipboard:
Simple Stories. Flocked snowflake brads: Freckled Fawn. Alphas: Websters pages (lilac), October Afternoon (brown). Dies: Lifestyle Crafts

Will you believe me when I say this is NOT a black/white photo? If you study it carefulle you will discover that the sticks are brown and the lamp post with some blue in it :-)

Close ups
Cut out snowflakes are made from a chic tags packaging

The banner pieces are made from a journaling card, cut in three.

I usually scrap with 3*4" photos, but it was perfect to use a huge one to ephasize the beauty of all the snow. I got the idea for this layout from this sketch at the Chic Tags' blog:

I definately will use oversized photos again!
Do you ever do it?

Wonderful page with that large photo. For a long time all pictures have been so small you can hardly see what's in them. I hope that is changing!! :-)
