Merry & Bright Christmas Page

Another 8X8 Scrapbook page for my Bestie's Friendship gift album. 

This this is my take based on the sketch over at Die Cuttin' Diva's for their Challenge this week.
I used my Cricut to cut the two rounded corner background layers.  the doily mat is from my WRMK Mini 8 Punch set called Doily.  the reindeer is from an old cardmaker kit in my stash, he is popped up on foam tape.  The back green polka-dot paper is just from my stash, the solid red is recollections card stock and all of the rest of the paper cuteness is from Pebbles - Welcome Christmas stack.  The 2003 I welded together and cut with my Cricut.  For the photo I used my WRMK corner rounder just on 2 corners to give it an interesting look.  The Ornament die-cuts are from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Die - Holiday Tags.  I popped the smaller white one up on foam tape and stamped it in red chalk ink with Merry & Bright from HOTP Christmas Collection Stamp Set.  The ribbon is saved from a gift to be re-used. 
Green & white bakers twine bow is from my Sew easy stash of twines. 

I added bling... red rhinestones to my ribbon and to two corners of my photo and a bigger one to the Reindeer Nose of course.  Then I sprinkled some cool shaped sequins in red and green all over, I just got this from an online Peachy cheap deal at a great buy.

I am entering into these fun challenges:

HIMCR #261 - Freestyle with a Twist!

Six more pages to go by tomorrow... wish me luck!  Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I am up to.  Hope to see you again very soon!

Life's a Beach Luau Page

I have been working on an 8x8 Friendship album for my Bestie to give her for her upcoming Surprise party.  I have 6 more pages to go and only 2 more days to work on it so wish me luck my crafty friends, I am such a procrastinator!
 Such fun memories made at this Luau we threw in the Summer of 2000, I hope the one this weekend will be even better!!!   Ha ha ha I forgot I stole my Brothers until I looked at these pictures.  

I used some pretty purple corrugated paper to add some texture which I used my curved Fiskars ruler and a craft knife to create the curved border.  the rest of the papers I used are from a Neon stack by Craft Smith. The little Luau Girl tag is from an old Paper stack from my stash, I added some small purple gems to set her off.  She is also popped up on foam tape.   I also added some larger purple Gems to the Flower centers.  The 2000 I created in SCAL.
