Sparkly New Year - Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Blog Challenge

This week at Suzy Bee's Blooming Challenge Blog our wonderful sponsor is Bugaboo Digital Stamps!!!! Of course it's Anything Goes but this week with an optional twist - Sparkle!!  Easy Peasy - right???

Vicky Fortier, aka Crafting Vicky, has made some wonderful little calendar pages which I adore and thought Bugaboo Dottie Celebrates would make a wonderful January Calendar Girl!!!

  • calendar was cut using Cricut Elegant Edges Cartridge using page 43 and cutting at 7.25 inches
  • Bugaboo Dottie Celebrates was colored using Whisper Strokes and Spectrum Nor Markers with gel pen accents and hi-lights
  • sentiment, "A New Year with old friends", had been a previous freebie from Create with TLC with rounded corners and chalked around the edges
  • NOW, the fun begins - confetti stickers were used along with Stickles to that sparkle not only in Dotties' dress but her drink, hair, and dots on the calendar
  • check out the size of that rock on her finger - gem stones were added for the ring, in her hair, and for the belt
I thank you for stopping by and visiting today. Don't forget to showcase your project on Susy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge Blog this week to enter in the Challenge!!!
