Make it Monday Challenge -Papertrey Ink

Hi again.

I told you I would be back again soon.  Two posts in one day, that must be a record for me.

I thought while I had my PTI supplies out, I would play along with the weekly challenge.  This week you had to include glittered embellishments.

Now anyone that knows me well, knows that the word glitter sends me into a tail spin.  I don't like to use it, and avoid it generally at all costs.

You see I am one of those people that manages to get it everywhere. In my hair, on my clothes, over my face. And it just sticks to me.  No matter how many times I wash myself, I will still have glitter on me weeks later. 

Sorry I digress.  I decided to pull on my big girl panties, pull out the JAC paper and glitter and make some embellishments.

Here is the final result.

I really love the little elephant and giraffe, even if they are covered in glitter.  You may be wondering if I managed to get over my glitter phobia...well the answer is no.  The glitter has returned to the shelf, where I am sure it will sit lonely and unused for another long period of time.  Don't feel sorry for the glitter, it has definitely left a mark on me, in my hair, on my clothes and all over my face.

Until next time

Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

Hi everyone.

It has been a while since I posted I know.  But with a new year comes fresh attitudes and creativity.

I thought I would start off the year by participating in a blog hop challenge through Papertrey Ink.
PI products are my new addiction.  They make it so easy to create a beautiful card. I think you will see a lot of my cards using PI products in the future :) 

The challenge for this month is 'Pretty in Pink'.

Having two beautiful girls, this challenge was right up my alley, so I decided to make two cards.

Have you seen the beautiful ruffle cakes that are popping up all over the internet, that is where the inspiration for this card came from.  I attempted a ruffle cake for my daughters birthday last year, but not being a cake maker I won't shame myself by sharing those picture with you.

Here is the card instead.

Still having some scraps of pink paper on my desk I decided to put together another quick card.  You can't let any precious paper go to waste...right.

Well thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog today. I hope you enjoyed your visit.

I will be back soon with more creations.
