Scrapbook layout - 'Shelling Out' - Lasting Memories

 Hi all and welcome to my crafty blog.

today I am posting my entry for the  Lasting Memories 'Shelling Out' competition  LMCB #112 running until  the end of the week.

My layout for this challenge is a photo taken of my husband taken on a trip to the local ski slopes. Sitting in the sun, enjoying some wonderful Apfel Strudel with Hot Chocolate and 'shelling out' again for lunch. LOL.  Wrapped up well on the ouside and making sure the inside is warm too.  The rum in the chocolate will take care of that.

This is a digital scrap-page made using photoshop and one piece from a digital kit.

The wintery background is a photo taken by my husband on one of our wintery walks and treated in Photoshop with some of the speciall layering techniques and given a colour to match the digital backing paper.  The snowflakes are simple cookie-cutter shapes, also given some special features from photoshop and  inserted in different sizes onto the layout. I then created my text and popped it up on some warm yellow  beveled ovals. The title was added to finish.

My husband is a bit neglected in the scrapbooking creations  I make and I thought it was time to make amends. He liks it  :-)

Thanks for stopping by to read my blog and leave a comment.  I love hearing from you and your time and comments are appreciated.
