JustRite Friday Challenge #035 - Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

 Break out the Glimmer Mist!  That's what I did...and it was fun!  JustRite's Friday Challenge this week was to make a Christmas tag.  I decided I wanted to try using some Glimmer Mist, and the colors that I had were a bit non-traditional.  But don't let that stop you!  A little glitter, some snowflakes and a beautiful sentiment will pull it all together.

Now, mine didn't come together exactly like I planned, but I certainly wasn't going to trash all of that sparkle - ha!  I noticed - too late - that my center snowflake and flower are on the same plane. Ah, well.  It could be worse, I guess.  I used the awesome stamp set "Christmas Nested Sentiments" and my new clear acrylic JustRite block.  LOVED it!!!  Spellbinders 2010 Snowflake Pendant, some CTMH paper, ink and pearls, a few Prima flowers, ribbon and call it a tag!

So what colors are you going to try for your Christmas projects?  I still love the vintage, muted ivy and cranberry, but you should step outside of your comfort zone sometimes.  You might like might not.....but you never know unless you try!

Till later,

I have no Glimmer Mist but if I did, I'd copy this tag as best I could. It is gorgeous!!

As for colors I like the traditional red and green. I'm just an old-fashioned old broad, you know. LOL.
