"Winter Wonderland" Layout - CMS Challenge #27

I woke up to a (very thin) blanket of snow today.
That's always a nice surprise!  It almost seems fitting since my layout today is about winter
This is the layout I've done for challenge #27 over at Color Me Scrappy. The photos in this layout are from our trip to Busch Garden's Christmas Town in 2011.
These are the colors that were issued to us along with the challenge to use a "white background". I was excited about this challenge becuase I knew I had the perfect paper collection for it; Echo Park's Winter Wishes collection.
My absolute favorite bit about this layout is the little vellum pocket. It was so easy to make and it adds such great texture to the page! It's also a nice place to hide journaling.

PRODUCTS USED: Winter Wishes 12X12 Collection Kits, Freckled Fawn Speech Bubble Wood Chips, Freckled Fawn Arrow Wood Chips, My Minds Eye Enamel Dots, Sasparilla 12X12 Alpha Stickers, Martha Stewart Scallop Dot Punch
