Are you ready to build a SNOWMAN? Let it go!!

Today I have for you a SHAKER layout!  This is not what I had in mind when I started this project, but I was using this beautiful acetate overlay and everyone is doing shaker cards, so I thought why not???  I hope you enjoy!  And if you are a movie buff you may recognize this is featured in the Jodie Foster movie Little Man Tate which was filmed in my neighborhood.  This is the school where he was playing on the playground.  It was the Fairview German Language school up until just about 7 years ago and now it has been converted into upscale condos.  The picture was sprayed with Radiant Rain Ice to give it more of a frozen feel.

I used my Cricut and a CTMH cart for the title.

The "shake" are punches, Creative Memories and Fiskars punched out of shimmer paper and some left over sequins from the sequin ribbon along the edge.  Along with some clear seed beads,  I also threw in just a bit of Distress glitter.

  6. Your layout is stunning, and I adore how you added a "shaker" feeling to it, with the motion in the snowflakes. How appropriate! I did enjoy the movie "Little Man Tate" though I don't really remember the building. Now I'm going to have to re-watch it and look. How fun it must've been to have that movie filmed in your neighborhood. I also wanted to say "THANK YOU" for co-sponsoring this hop with a fantastic prize. That is very generous of you.
