Crepe paper fun


In my search for some inspiration online, I constantly stumbled upon these gorgeous cinched and glittered crepe paper rounds. I wanted to incorporate it into the latest MOJO challenge and this card was what was born! Now, I don't know if I used the right crepe paper (I just used a plain white streamer) but it worked in this case, lol! To make it, I first glittered one end of it and then made a running stitch down the opposite end. Pulled the thread through to cinch and then glued the ends together with a mini glue dot. Since my crepe paper was stark white, I sponged a bit of Antique Linen Distress Ink. So what do you think? Have a site with better directions? I'd love to see it!


Now for some really fun news....I am officially Copic Certified!!!! My good friend Valeria and I attended the certification class in San Antonio on Monday and boy was it fun!!! That Sally Lynn is a hoot and I hope I get to see her again some day. I came home downright exhausted, but it was a GREAT class with great company!

And get this....I also got to meet THE Sharon Harnist. I've been following her blog waay before I even discovered what Google Reader was, LOL! Yes, I would just visit her website every day to see if she updated.....I'm a noob, I know this!

Whew! What a whirlwind this month has been. I feel like I'm barely coming up for air half the time, but it's been fun! My dad is coming to visit for the holiday and arrives late this evening. I'm so excited! Have things been busy in your household? :) Since it's also my husband's birthday today (HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LOVE!!!), my dad has been joking that his visit makes the best birthday gift ever, LOL! He's such a joker!

Anyway, thanks for visiting and I hope you're staying "above water" before the last minute holiday crunch!
