SS Challenge week 11

Here we go again. The challenge for last week was to make a winter page. For some reason I really enjoyed working on a winter page, even though I am so ready for Spring. I had three different pages in my mind that I wanted to complete. My first choice didn't work because the paper I planned to use didn't go with the pictures.

I decided to use some of my favorite pictures from this winter. Pink for winter is a little unusual, but I think it worked. Here is my page:

I would've never mixed greys and browns on the same page, but for some reason it didn't look wrong here. Before deciding to use them both. I realized my pictures had both of those shades in them. So I gave it a try.

Title came from the same sheet of stickers I shared last week. I used them on four layouts in a row. This set is a must have!

Rhinestones and winter. I just love that. This page doesn't have any expensive embellishments. Punched circles from pattern paper.

I'm so glad that I'm the first one to see everyone's page. I love getting emails with new pages each week. Anka made a page with a family Christmas photo.We had the same color choices this week. I like how soft her layout looks with torn vellum on. Rub-on words add something special to the page and snowflakes complete the mood of winter themed page. Here is Anka's layout:
And now, let me introduce to you Katya. This is the first time she participated in our weekly challenge (and hopefully not the last). Her page speaks winter from pictures to colors to title. I really like how white lacy borders has that frosty snowflake feel. Title over pictures was a nice way to connect them all together. Here's what Katya made:

I never know what to expect when I check Lora's email. I like that we all try to experience different styles to figure out what is really "me". She made a lovely page with craft background which adds calm and soft feel to it. Very creative letter O, which I believe was hand cut. And if you know me I love pages with a lot of journaling (I don't always like to be the one to write it) so, she did a nice job on that. Here is Lora's page:

Last week I let Anka pick our next challenge. For SS week 12 she chose - a layout with a picture of you when you were 15-16 years old. It's so fun to be on this side for a change. I know it will not be the easiest for me, but challenge has been announced and my mind starts working.

Good luck everyone and hope to see your work soon!

  15. Duska, I sent Anya my page just today, so she will probably post it when she checks her email. It's so sweet how you inquired about it :) By the way, your page looks great, and it's a first one so it's not even great, it's wonderful. Love the blue, the picture looks like winter itself! The border just works so well! Anka - the colors are summery, but you made it work well for the photo and picture. Love it!!! You always seem to have a lot of little details, which I like. Anya - pink for winter page? Why not!!! I think it works great, especially with the subjects in the pictures :) Love the letter in the word snow :) Very much to my liking ;)
