I'm glad you arrived, please do come in.. I hope you enjoy my Homemade crafty items. Feel free to leave a comment and if you have any questions I'll do my best to reply. I've been having better luck with my Mojo but still have a tendency to get lost in the game. I lose my mojo and I just wait for some inspiration to hit and then I'll scrap again. I'm sure others know what I'm talking about. We just plain run out of ideas for a moment! Sooner or later things are kicking back into gear! YAY! For those that stop by and leave comments, I greatly appreciate it. Even stop by just to say Hi.. I will try to get back to your blog too. I hope you have a great day, I hope you enjoy your visit!

Let It Snow ------- A Difficult Challenge kit for me.

Merry Christmas everyone!!    Santa is almost here!!                   Dec 24th, 2012

Today I'm going to share with you a layout as well the picture of the kit and the limited things I had to work with.    I finally finished after alot of thinking.
The Rules of this challenge was I could ONLY use the paper supplied and the very sparse embellishments.  I could not buy any prefabbed embellishments, or any other papers.   What we could use was any medium out there, Paints, smooch, embossing powder, inks, clays,  so if you wanted an embellishment you had to come up with something yourself. .  So if I wanted flowers I'd have to make too..   SO  after alot of thought I went to town!   Everything was made.  There are several different mediums used..  making silicon moulds.  I made the roses from utee, the birds in Plastic resin,  red flower  centres I made from oven baked clay too.  I used micro fine glitter on sookwang tape.  The "string of white beads"  are white opal  liquid pearls.  The gold fern were painted with Krylon's 18kt. Gold leaving pen..  Ooh this is such a gorgeous gold color.   I wish the camera would pick up all the glitter.. as the gold, Red and White are so sparkly.   The white micro fine glitter is actually called iridescent Diamonds... its full of white, silver and clear teeny tiny fine glitter.. its just so gorgeous I love it.   I will have a long list of supplies listed at the bottom of this layout.  Please drop me a message, its nice to know I have visitors.    I hope you enjoy my creativity with this layout...    Sherry

I have submitted this layout to a Bling challenge And A christmas color challenge too,  over at Funtoolas. And I'm hoping to add it to a Challenge at Flying Unicorn For the  December's  Alter Ego Challenge.
