010117 January Archi-scraps Challenge

Starting out the year with another exciting inspiration at Archi-scraps!

One of the many beautiful domes in the Alhambra, Spain. 
Such delicate work , like fine lacework.
JANUARY challenge -use lace.
This also works for the Whimsical Musings Challenge #241 - lace!

The obvious choice would be product.
The trick for me? Deciding on a photo or story.
Fortunately I came upon the most gloriously frosty window.

I had just pulled my January counterfeit kit for CKC (reveal post tomorrow) and purely for my 
own pleasure had included a couple of rogue papers, one of which totally rocked for my background. 
I used the great assortment of alphas for my title & I couldn't be more pleased.
The frosty Dear Lizzie Thickers were perfect!

The 2008 Fancy Pants Designs "Arctic Chill/Polar" paper by jackie eckles is 
beautifully graphic & the unexpected color makes a great contrast to the black & white image.

 I used silver thread to stitch the pale green Heidi Swapp ghost 
letters down using a simple stitch reminiscent of snowflakes. 

A touch of silver snowflake ribbon top & bottom finish off the page.
My brilliant meteorogist & Bible scholar husband had the perfect verse.

 I'll be watching to see your post in the Linky!

Happy New Year!
