Joy Layout (Based on the sketch)
This is our lovely sketch this month:
And, here's my take on it:
I cut the tree from the Core'dinations cardstock with my Cameo, and sanded it for the distressed look. I used a mask and the gold Croco paint form the mediums kit to get the "snow" effect.

It's my turn to do the Swirlydoos "Anatomy of a Layout" feature, where a designer creates a layout using only the main kit, and this is it. I took this picture of my littlest man two years ago. For step by step details, check out the Anatomy thread of the Swirlydoos forums.
