I am sitting here in front of the fire just overwhelmed with all of the wonderful things that you all have written on my post this past weekend. I was so honored to be apart of KinderStampO's Birthday Celebration. I had so much fun creating my project and several of you asked for directions on how to create it, so I am working on getting that together and will post later this week... keep watching... after this weekend I feel that giving away a little blog candy is in order!!!

I have several things to share today. First, I want to show a layout that I created using October Afternoon's Christmas line "Very Merry".
I used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on my background papers. I cut out my tags to use as backing for my letters. Below is a close up of my favorite embellishment on this layout:
Using Sticky Back Canvas, I stamped my image with Black Ink. I went over the stamped swirls with Black Enamel Accent from Ranger. I used Stickles for my heart and Distress Inks to ink the canvas up. I then used my Tiny Attacher and attached the canvas to craft paper. Using Pop-Dots, I was able to create a pocket effect so my tag can slide behind it.

I am thrilled to announce that I have been given the Stylish Blogger Award! My dear friend and partner in crime, Pam has bestowed this honor on me! You can find her at Scrapbook Flair . In accepting this award I agree to share 8 facts about myself and then pass it on to 8 blogs that I think are stylish!
