well then! i thought i'd have a chance to get back online last night, but ended up spending some fabulous quality time with the hubbin, which was SO nice! life gets so frantic, ya know? a bit of US time was definitely in order. :)
SO, i didn't get a chance to post about the new ELEMENTS CHALLENGE at Design Dollies! oh, this was a fun one, indeed! and i'm pretty sure we'll see lots of players, because i don't know a single crafter who's not into BLING...
we want to see at least THREE different types of bling on your creations. for mine, i incorporated four...
(CLICK TO ENLARGE - you won't wanna miss the FLOWER!)
1) yes, that flower. see that AMAZINGLY GORGEOUS crocheted flower? that was a very sweet gift from the very lovely Terry (she sent me a whole bunch of these babies, and i have been ITCHING to find a way to use them!) - it's light brown with GOLD THREAD woven into it. bling #1.
2) the little hatpin - from Making Memories. i picked up a pack of those on clearance at Michael's. they were marked at 39 cents and rang up at a PENNY! bling #2.
3) swirl of rhinestones (cheapie dollar store kind) on the sentiment. bling #3.
4) the Stickles on my gal's dress. it was already glossy, which was an awesome effect, but i felt that it needed just a hint of POP - hence, bling #4.
so that's how it's done! link up your projects on THIS POST - projects must be created NEW for this challenge, and you must link back to the Dollies in your post! you have until next MONDAY, March 29th at midnight EST to enter for a chance to win a HOT surprise goodie pack from our first awesome sponsor, Scrap-A-Doodle-Doo!
i also have a little sneakie for you. you're SO gonna wanna come back tomorrow for a visit. just sayin'!
