Heart 2 Heart - Picture Perfect

Welcome to another challenge at Heart 2 Heart. This week, the challenge is titled "Picture Perfect". However you want to interpret this theme is your choice. I chose to create a layout as that is the first thing that came to mind when I saw this challenge. 

I live in Ontario, Canada and during the Christmas holidays, it was incredibly cold! Not just a teeny little bit cold - I mean SUPER DUPER chilled to your bones COLD. I have lived here most of my life and I don't remember a winter this early that has been this cold... Our temperatures dropped overnight as low as -40C. That is where it meets the Fahrenheit scale for those of you on the Imperial system as -40C is also -40 F. It didn't rise much during the day either. My poor little doggie didn't even want to go outside - it was a daily fight with her, coping with frozen feet, even with little booties on her paws. 

I thought I would take some photos and settled on one for my layout. It doesn't show a lot of snow but everything was completely frozen. We also got a ton of snow, especially early on. Our ski hills are promising the best ski season in many years (if you can tolerate the sub-zero temperatures).

I used the reverse (lighter) side of Sapphire cardstock for the blue on my layout. The Cricut cuts are from Flower Market and I sliced a square from the Artbooking cartridge to make it thinner. The stamp is not a CTMH stamp but one from Simon Says Stamp that worked perfectly for this layout. I sewed around the edge using a straight stitch -and yes, the wavy lines are intentional. 

The photo below shows the shimmer on the title that isn't visible in the complete layout photo.
