Scrap That Poetry!

It feels good to be scrappin' again after 3 days of not being able to sit at my desk. Why? Because this innocent little face decided to race me down the stairs on Wednesday morning. I won, at the expense of a broken foot in 2 places. I went to step over him and missed the following step, planting down hard 3 steps down.

Luckily, it wasn't as bad as they originally thought and I am in a walking shoe and using crutches for the next 4 weeks or so. While couch bound with my foot elevated the last 72 hours, I was able to surf my favorite blogs and plan out a few layouts.

After having fun with the Scrap That Poetry! blog hop, I used their current Challenge #8 poem - Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening by Robert Frost. I played with my new SEI Winter Song kit. I love the glittery patterned papers. All of the red accents (including alphas) are felt! So pretty.


The black frame is cut from the Winter Bliss collection at SVGcuts.com. I highly recommend their products if you are using Sure Cuts A Lot!

I used part of the negative that cut from the frame on the bottom of the following page. The border on the right is raised in felt, too. I'm not diggin' the rub ons, but I was committed when I started putting them on. Maybe not great to use on black? I don't use rub ons very often so if you have any tips and tricks, I would love to hear.

Here is how they look together.

See I knew Jax had to be involved somehow, I must have missed that little detail on the group.

LOVE the layout! The black is very striking!

Oh my goodness! I hope you recover perfectly and quickly. That is so not fun. I love your layout! That color combo is fantastic - it's fun to see red with a winter theme (besides Christmas). Thanks for playing at STP and get well soon!!!
