High Hopes Challenge #51

Sorry I'm late folks! I got home Saturday afternoon after the most awesome wedding Friday night and then spent the day trick or treating! That was rough when all I really wanted to do was sleep! LOL! Anyway, here is High Hopes Challenge #51 "Snowflakes" hosted by Amy Leggate. I just love making sparkly snowflakes!

I stamped this sweet snowlady on watercolor paper with Versa Fine black ink and painted it with a combination of Twinkling H2O's, Shimmerz, and Blingz. The design paper is from the Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey and the solid cardstock and ribbon is PTI. The blue mat behind the image is glitter paper from Doodlebugs and both were cut with Nestabilitie dies. I added a snowflake charm to the bow and snowflakes from both Marvy and Martha Stewart punches coated in Diamond Glaze and Martha Stewart Mica Flake glitter. I added a Prima flat backed gem to the center of each snowflake and some dots of Liquid Applique to the flower center on her hat. It's really very shimmery irl!

Come on over to the blog and join in the challenge and take a look at all the wonderful projects from the Diva's!

Now if you want to scroll down a bit I will share a few pics from the weekend...

This is the gorgeous bride and groom. The bride wore stunning bright red satin heels with her dress and the wedding party was in black and the ladies all had on leopard print shoes-they were so elegant and so much fun! I can't wait to see the video!

Of course there are no pictures of my husband and I together...but here's what I got...

This is me with some Marines who'd crashed the wedding...that was fun! There was a dozen of them at least. How cute are they? Wish it was a better picture of me, but that doesn't happen often anyway, lol!

This is my hubby on the right with the limo driver...no he was not invited to the wedding. Turns out he and my hubs knew each other-small world!

This is Sean my 3 year old. He was a medieval knight and this is the only time he would wear his helmet.


This is Joey my 6 year old with his makeup done by dad. He loved being Dracula-he's a natural for the stage...I can see him now, lol!



I hope everyone had a fun Halloween and a great weekend!
