What a bittersweet post this is for me, as after a year of being on this wonderful team, this is the 1st of my last 3 posts as DT member on the Blue Fern Studios blog.
Through the year, I have been blessed with wonderful scrappy friends, fabulous quality products from generous owner Leslie and inspiration galore. I am forever grateful of having been given this amazing opportunity and will forever hold a special place in my heart for Blue Fern Studios.
Let's start off this series of farewell posts with this Winter-y creation featuring the gorgeous Vintage Christmas collections 1 & 2.
To create this layout, I was inspired by this stunning mood board from Berry71bleu.

I am also playing along to one of my very first DT's dating back quite a few years,
Scrap It with a Song which is a wonderful challenge blog inspired by music!

Their rock song inspiration this month is Hammerfall's Send Me a Sign. I had never heard that song and found the melody to be quite soft and romantic, very beautiful, but with very sad lyrics. It reminded me of how I used to feel about Winter before I met Yves... it was a truly sad and depressing time for me. I kept wishing for a sign of true love. Now, each day spent with him is a testament that life can be wonderful and some things are truly worth waiting for.
Now let's take a closer look at my page...
The Blue Fern Studios' Vintage Christmas collections not only offer beautiful Christmas patterns,
but also include lots of papers that are perfect for Winter-themed layouts like this plaid print.
To go along with it, I chose several Winter chipboard pieces including the Snow Medley board, covered in Snow embossing powder with a touch of glitter dust, and these adorable mittens from the Cozy Christmas set on which I used It's a Girl and Blue Sky.
You see below the Dangled Flake piece which I cut in half as I wanted to save some of it for another project. I added several flowers from the new kits, Christmas Blooms and Soft Blossoms. I sprinkled lots of silver microbeads throughout my page.
I chose A Wonderful Life, covered in Snow, as the title to which I added the word Cozy which I 'stole' from the Cozy Christmas piece, as that is exactly the word that comes to mind when I look at this picture of Yves and I cozying up to each other for a selfie during a Winter stroll.
