Crafty Secrets National Scrapbook Day DT Challenge & WINNER!

Today's the day for the Crafty Secrets design team Scrapbook Day Challenge.
If you've been following along all week, you've probably commented on the DT blogs for a chance for the $50 gift certificate. Today the rest of the team is offering the certificate, and Sandy has more goodies up her sleeve! WOOHOO, more fun!
Sandy & Vicki challenged the team to make a card or project using a picture. I decided to use this picture of me and Terry taken several years ago. I bought an 8x8 canvas at Micheal's and altered it for a wall hanging.I used Glimmer Screens and Glimmer Mist on the canvas, that was fun, then I ended up covering most of it up...oh well, it was still fun! I used some of my vintage buttons to go around the edges of the canvas.
I made the flower with papers from the CS Pastel Paper Pad and Tim Holtz's new Tattered Flowers Die by Sizzix. I did some distressing and Glimmer Misting on it. The center silk rosette is from the new Crafty Secrets Vintage Bling Sandy will be carrying soon. I almost used the whole package on this canvas, there are so many fun pieces in it. She has some gorgeous lacy sticker strips coming out too, I used the gold foil leaves on this canvas. Vintage lace is along the bottom.
The sentiment is on the Romance Homespun Cotton Scraps. I attached it to an old linen patch like flower with tatting around it, so pretty. I put that on a large chipboard heart that I covered with some old sheet music. I covered the heart with Antique Linen Distress Stickles, LOVE that stuff!
This butterfly was in my CS Vintage Bling bag, I sprayed it with some Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.
Here's the Vintage Bling in the packaging, Sandy will be selling it retail at all of the shows she'll be attending, so remember to watch out for it when you go!

I love your work Pam and am already a "follower"!!

I'm always inspired when I get your new posts!
Congrats Mindy! I'll be contacting you shortly with the details.
This is a bloom from a Hibiscus plant I bought. Everything looks so pretty now, I love to go outside and take it all in.
If you have been watching the news, we had tornadoes in AR. last night. I've heard of 1 fatality, she was our insured and there are several injuries and homes distroyed in the small community of Scotland. There was some damage here in Greers Ferry, we've just seen trees down around here close to Shiloh, I'm sure there's more. Please keep the families that were affected by this in your thoughts and prayers.

I hope you have a great weekend!
