it is time for another crazy 4 challenge and we are lifting it up or creating a shaker. let it be known I am shaker challenged...lol! I think they are the cutest and I luv that you can shake them and make a little noise, but I really struggle with pulling them together....any pointers you have I would luv to know! I have used a bit of paint for the base, then embossing paste, added the sweet glittery hearts, and sentiment. The flower was in my scrap flower bin as was the glittery leaf....those leaves are from the stamp market.....luv em! I can't wait to see what you create this week!

What a fun challenge this week, pop it up...I always like a little depth to elements on my cards; especially flowers. I have used the sweet little flower set called fab flowers and dies. I have used fun foam to pop them up, I luv using fun foam! Cut it with the die so it is the exact size of the shape, perfect for a complete pop up of the shape, then adhere to the back of the images for depth. I have played along with several challenges listed below. I can't wait to see what you create this week!
