Michelle's 1 year Blog Anniversary Snowman Hop! (Giveaway Alert...)

Hello! I am happy to be joining Michelle from Scrapbooking SOS to help celebrate her 1 year Blog Anniversary! If you are just coming here from Pattie Beach, then you are on the right track! If click HERE to head back to Michelle's blog and start from the beginning! 

Here is my project I made for the hop:
Isn't that the happiest snowman you ever saw?!?!?! I just love him! I cut him using my Cricut and Snow Friends cartridge, and added a cute face using my Peachy Keen In Stitches Face Assortment.
I inked the edges of each layer with Tim Holtz distress ink in either Antique Linen or Vintage Photo, and put Diamond glaze on his boots for a bit of shine. Also used my Copic markers to color in the face just a bit.
Except the kraft, all the paper is from October Afternoon, as well as the lace and pom pom trim along the bottom. 
I ran some kraft paper through my Cuttlebug using the snowflake folder, but leaving the very bottom out of the folder for my sentiment. The sentiment is a rub on from October Afternoon that I got in one of their Santa Sacks this year. 
I also cut off one of the pom poms and put it on the top of his hat! 
Finished off by pop-dotting the snowman from the background for some fun dimension! 

Now - if you made it this far through my LONG post, I have a little giveaway for you! I know it is a snowman hop (and I love snowmen) - but I have to say I am starting to get excited about spring! So how about a bright and fun spring paper pad? These papers are so cute, and I have loved using them...and I have an extra to share with someone who leaves a comment for me! So - leave a comment, about anything you like, and I will draw a winner on Monday! Make sure to come back and check and see if you won!
