Behind the Page: Seeing Smoke

or maybe ice...what do you see then you look at the blue patterned paper below?  I saw the zigzags and immediately went to icicles hanging down on a frozen winter day!  That warrants cutting, right?  Can't have icicles without falling snow so that was next!

I love looking at hidden ideas and themes within scrappy goodies.  Folks in my field might refer to that as figure-ground...there may be figures or images in the background!  Looking with curious eyes makes scrapbooking interesting!

I recently created this layout for a class over at The Nook.  It features the beautiful Dec. kit featuring Crate Paper. 

I love those little houses so much and wanted to integrate them into a layout!  This idea was triggered once I found my firetruck Santa pictures!  I decided to enhance the houses by making some smoke!  The pompoms of the Crate trim easily transform into puffs coming out of the chimney.

To finish it off, I addes some strips and a brad!  Small touches that make it complete!

I am so ready for winter break...I am needing a perspective change and know that one is just around the corner...just like Santa!
