Melissa is sharing a fabulous Winter Layout for you, to get this challenge started.


Happy 2016 Peeps!!

It's another exciting year at Southern Ridge Trading Company. Karen is off to the big CHA show in Anaheim soon with lots of new & exciting product to show off to the world.

This month's theme is "Winter" and I was so lucky to have been able to do up a double page scrapbook layout from when my son asked his long term girlfriend to be his wife recently! Pretty pumped to be able to incorporate some winter Snowflakes 713 into the layout celebrating their joy!

Snowflakes were sprayed with Smooch then an extra layer of Marshmallow colour from Glimmer Mists. They just shimmer in the light as you can see from the close ups!

Such a pretty way to finish up the final touches of a very special memory for them. Thanks for letting me share my exciting family news with you all! :)

Be sure to upload your winter themed projects to our gallery so that we can see what you're up to as well! 
Cheers! Melissa
