Create, Create!!!

Howdy Friends and Family!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend...I know I did!  I had a lot of fun this past week and TWO weekends creating for a special Paper Issues Online Crop.  Oh my gosh, did I get inspired!  They have the greatest group of ladies who are all very encouraging.  The challenges were great fun, and I got a lot created.

One of the challenges was to make a creation with sparkle.  Well I thought it was the perfect chance to combine two challenges.  I ordered some chipboard embellishments from a company called "Creative Embellishments".  I have to say, they have some of the most intricate chipboard pieces I have seen.  They have their March challenge going so I thought I would play along and "Sparkle" up some of the chipboard pieces I had purchased for their challenge.  this is the link to their challenge.

  Here is the layout I made for both of the challenges.

I love my honey!!!  Anyway, I was inspired by the butterflies on the Creative Embellishment's  challenge, and bought some Butterfly Flourishes from them.  I also purchased some intricate Butterflies, but decided not to use them on this particular layout.  I used some circle chipboard, (up in the upper left hand corner) that they sent me for placing an order.  What a great treat!

I painted the Butterfly Flourishes with gold crackle paint and then sprinkled them with gold glitter.  Isn't glitter fun?  I think they look just right with the Prima "Princess" line.

If you are looking for some fun chipboard pieces, I would recommend Creative Embellishments.

Have a happy week!!
