Okay - now that I've recovered from the Mesa Show - here's a quick peek at Make & Take Margaret, Bling It On Brenda & Ask Ann getting ready to rock the show!   Also - a few snaps of the booth.  We had so much fun showing off Sparkle N Sprinkle's amazing Embossing Powders, Glitters, Stamps and all the other fun products!!!  Judy Bennett, who was one of Sparkle N Sprinkle's previous blog hop winners drove up from the Tucson area to meet us - it's always fun to put a face to a name.  
I'll be off to Manchester, New Hampshire in two weeks to do it all again!

Make & Take Margaret - Ask Ann - Bling It On Brenda

If you're in the Manchester, NH area, stop by and say hi!  I'd love to meet you.  I'll be the one covered in glitter LOL.

This is excitement at it's best!   Charlie just loves life....   This was a pretty simple layout and the bling was all added using Tear-ific Tape for the stripes on the side and Super Adhesive Sheets punched into circles and letters from an alphabet template.   I used Orange Surprise & Navy glitters from Sparkle N Sprinkle and also Yellow Gold glitter tinsel.  Added a few buttons and Voila!!!  Can you tell he's a Syracuse fan....   Mom & Dad are both alumni.

On The High Seas

Had some old photos from San Diego a few years ago when we went to see the Tall Ships.  Thought they'd fit nicely with the new stamp sets from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  Most images are from Set 458 - Treasure Hunt and some from Set 459 - A Pirate's Life.    I embossed random images on the woodgrained cardstock using Pebbled Copper embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  The images were "fussy cut" and added using dimensionals.  A little bling finished it off - Mudd Puddles Breeze Sea Glass with a sprinkle of Sparkling Snow glitter.  Had an old piece of netting that was perfect for the part!

Here's a close-up of the pirate and the Mudd Puddles.

Charlie in the Bahamas Part II

Got to play with a product called Mudd Puddles this weekend, so decided to try a scrapbook page with Charlie's Bahama pictures.  They're fun beach glass type embellishments that come in jars mixed with an adhesive.  You just spread it on like frosting.  I decided to add a little more "bling" to it and added a little Sparkle N Sprinkle Waterscape glitter to the it appears like the sun is shining off the glass on the beach.  Before adding the Mudd Puddles, I used a sea sponge and sponged on a little Versamark randomly to my beach and embossed it with Sparkle N Sprinkle's Hit the Beach embossing powder.  To add a little "shimmer" to the water part of the page, I brushed on Sparkle N Sprinkle Brushable Glue and used both Waterscape and Waterfall glitters.  The Bahamas "tag" was made using a Super Adhesive Sheet layered onto cardstock - run thru my Grand Caliber using the Spellbinder's Fancy Tags III die - peeled off the top protective layer and added Champagne glitter.

 Here's a close-up of the Mudd Puddles Breeze Beach Glass & the "water" with Waterscape & Waterfall glitters added.

Here you can see the die cut with the Champagne glitter and the Hit the Beach embossing powder on the beach with the Flip Flops Beach Glass added to the Beach.
