Totally Papercrafts Challenge #40 Bling It On!

Gosh... here we are the back end of October already.... are all your little ghouls and ghosties ready for Halloween? Here's Suzie on the webcam... not sure what she was doing on my comp... looking up Halloween outfits maybe ???

It's time for another challenge at Totally Papercrafts. This week our host is the lovely, Mel, and she has picked the theme

Bling It On   !!

We want to see plenty of sparkle and glitter on your projects.
Go mad with it.... I dare you!!    :-))
Check out the blog for more details and to see the gorgeous work of the DT.
Here's my project - a Christmas Wall Hanging.

My kitchen walls are very plain - just white paint... so I thought it would be nice to put something up with a bit of colour and, of course, plenty of bling. This is a cheap 12 x 12 canvas, the perfect size for a sheet of my DP.

Challenges -     ABC - 'G is for Glitter'

Stamps -  Mary and Joseph - LOTV, coloured with Copics.   Fa La La - Catslife Press.    Remember this moment -  Maya Road.                Design Paper - My Mind's Eye, Signature Christmas.
Slice machine ( Fa La La Design ) cut the snowflakes, which were covered in Diamond Dust, and the 'Noel',
which was edged in stickles glitter.
The blooms are from my stash, and I threaded a little silver bell and some beads onto a piece or wire and then wrapped the end around the rose.
Pearl and gem swirls are Prima  'Say it in pearls'.
