As requested, we are to share a little bit about ourselves...

Howdy! I'm Ally. Here are 10 fun facts that you might not know about me....

1. I have only been scrapbooking about 4.5 years but it feels like a lifetime!
2. I have traveled from Toronto to Vancouver by train... TWICE! I love riding the rails!
3. I have been to a lot of the Canadian provinces; PEI, Quebec, New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC. I just need to see Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, the Northwest Territories, the Yukon and Nunavut.
4. My dream job would be to travel and teach scrapbooking!
5. I would love to design and sell my own stamps some day.
6. I am a Copic addict. I have about 130 of them so far and my collection will continue to grow until I have them all!
7. I have a serious addiction to stamps! I especially love Christmas stamps.
8. I have put my feet in both oceans; the Pacific and the Atlantic.
9. I have had no creative mojo up until about 2 days ago. I hadn't touched paper in almost a week! I know... shocking!
10. I have taken over 65,000 pictures with my Canon Rebel XT. I've had it since December 2005. I would love a new camera!

Now on to the reason we're all here tonight! Zoe created this STUNNING page...

...and we have all been asked to scraplift it. Isn't it BEAUTIFUL?

Here's my lift.... the real page looks so much better than any picture I could get!

Frosty Kisses

supplies: cardstock, Bazzill; glitter paper, MAMBI; metal flower, white brad, Chatterbox; mini stickers, Dazzles by Hot Off the Press; brads, Imaginisce, Queen & Co., Making Memories; pearls, Basic Grey; pine bough stamp, Gina K. Designs; felt snowflakes, green gems, glitter alphabets, Making Memories; die cut snowflakes, Spellbinder's; ink, Ranger, Copic; large snowflakes shape for paste, Tattered Angels; 3D molding paste, American Tradition Designs; other, Glimmer Mist, thread, paper bag.

Here are some close ups of my layout...

I created the 3D areas of my layout using 3D molding paste and a Tattered Angels snowflake mask. I also used my Copic air brush and added some subtle colour and speckling to the raised areas.

The page is a lot more sparkly in person. I sprayed a generous amount of Glimmer Mist over the entire page to add another layer of sparkle.

Thanks for playing along, and now you can hop on back to the L-COM blog. Don't forget to leave a comment there telling us you have completed the blog hop and your name will be put into a draw for some fun goodies by Let's Capture Our Memories! Good luck!
