You should be coming from. Jen If you didn’t be sure to start at the beginning {HERE} so you can see all of the amazing projects that were created. If you did come from the fabulous ………. then you are on the right track.

I am so excited to share with you my project that I have created for you. But first I just have to say I absolutely love these stamps that I used. I was able to use the Monster Mash stamps which you can get {HERE}. I also used the fabulous 3 Girl Jam Crinkle ribbon  from the 
winter bundle the color is  Mistletoe which you can get {HERE}….. Be sure to continue reading the story to this picture is hilarious!

Let’s get on with seeing my project should we??? WHoop WHOOP!!

I stamped the monsters on tissue paper, then mod podged them to a brown paper sack,
I then allowed it to dry and cut it out.  Then I used the mod podge and glittered the edges with silver glitter.  After that was dry I used the tearing method and tore all around the monsters giving them a rougher look.  After that I inked the edges. I love how this technique turned out.

The polka dot paper is cut 8×9.5″ and I rounded the corners using my big bite at a 1.5″
The button and flower cluster is made up of a variety of different buttons and flowers from my stash.

Check out the 3 Girl Jam Crinkle Ribbon!!! EEK isn’t it so perfect on this page?
I simply applied adhesive on the paper and took the crinkle ribbon and did a scrunching effect. I also took a large paper clip and tied some of the crinkle ribbon to the top of it to add a special touch.   I also used the Hello from all of us stamp on the pink sticker embellishment from October Afternoon.

I am sure you are all wondering what this picture is all about? LOL well my daughters and their friends thought of this idea and stacked themselves up in the door frame.  It was super funny watching them get to the top.  Yup the one on right- bottom is 15 (daughters friend) the next one is 11 (daughters friend) next my 11 year old daughter and on the top my 15 year old daughter. LOL I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time.  The pic on the left goes  15 year old daughter 11 year old daughter, 15 year old friend.

I hope that you liked my project today. If you did I love some bloggie love leave me a comment. But wait don’t go yet… Be sure to check out Your next stop. The very talented and very creative Stacey!!
