No! w/ Simple Stories

Today's fun layout was made for a challenge over at Memorable Seasons.
The challenge is to pair an unexpected color with others on your layout.

This cute Snow Fun line from Simple Stories does that for you. You just don't expect this green to be in a line of blues, grays and whites, but it sure does look good and catch the eye.

This layout is about my daughter who did not want to build a snowman but did tunnel under the snow to make her own snow cave. The bottom photo shows her crawling into her cave. I didn't get a photo of how big it was but she fit in just fine.

With that fun green I was able to make my main photo stand out really easily and then added a few of the cute word stickers from the line around it.

I'm not a big fan of ribbon but I did like this really big gray with white polka dots and used it for layers across my layout. Then I added my journaling over it. The journaling card in the kit had more around it but I wanted the white edges to help it stand out, so I cut that part off. 

Finish it off with some fun layered banners and cute stickers.
Thanks for stopping by!
