12/09 Scrapbooking Goodies' DT Challenge: create a layout using a Fairytale Creations chalking template

This month's DT challenge was to use a Fairytale Creations chalking template on a layout using any medium or technique of your choice. Although I like chalk to add details to paper-piecings and diecuts, I much prefer to use these templates to create paper-pieced embellies!

I chose the "Snow Day" template to use for skiing pictures from a trip to Gunstock NH back in 2003.

Using Core'dinations cs, I paperpieced the skis, snowman, mittens, and scarf, inked the edges with a black Stazon and added detail with a Zig Millenium marker. I created the snowflakes using an EK Success light blue colored pencil to trace the shape, then applyied "waterfall" stickles to make them sparkle and shine! The title letters were cut from core'dinations cs in design studio using Winter Woodland cartridge. I used "Frosty Dots" from the Reminisce Holiday Leftovers Collection papers for my photo mats. Adding scans of ski-tags and Gunstock map helped me to complete the layout without buying more supplies... bonus!

Next month's SG Design Team Challenge: "Create a theme layout of your choice".
