Black and White

***UPDATE***
How handy that this weeks challenge at Lasting Memories Layout Challenge blog is snow related layouts....I entered this layout and hope everyone likes it!

It's time for another Friday Challenge on the Quick Quotes blog.  This month the challenge is to use a black and white photo.  I love to use black and white photos on a layout - it doesn't matter what color the photo is, you can pair it with any layout!!
In these photos my kids had on green and red hats as they played in the only snow they've seen on Christmas Day, but that certainly didn't go with the beautiful blues and browns of this layout....so black and white was a perfect choice.  I have to admit - I did this layout without having a specific photo in mind.  My very good friend Nadine had done one similar to this at a retreat we were at recently and I just had to lift it.  Once I finally found the photo I wanted to use, I added the snow flakes and title.

Products used in my design:
Quick Quotes Stowaway Collection
Paperloft paper
Close To My Heart cardstock
Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge
Pearls, rhinestones and tulle from the stash.

You know, I always hesitate to do 'naked' LO's in fear of never finding that perfect pic! DUH!! Why did I not EVER think of just printing the pic in black and white!! Great idea!
