Flaunt it Friday 1st Blog Hop and 1st Challenge!!!

Remember to leave comments on every stop along the way, and leave a 2nd comment on the Flaunt It Fridays blog saying you've visited everyone and left them comment love for a 2nd chance to win the Grand Prize sponsored by Peachy Keen Stamps!

For my blog hop project I decided to make a little treat bag using the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge as well as Winter Frolic for the tree. I may use this type of bag for some Christmas goodies for various people. I hope you enjoy my little project and below you can see my first design team project too.




I am also submitting this to Momo's Tuesday Challenge, at www.madebymomo.com.





This was my first design team project for Flaunt it Fridays. Our task this time was to use this snowman from Winter Frolic. I decided to make a Winter Decoration. I designed this in my gypsy and I made the snowman quite big. I welded the circle cut out into the belly of the snowman so that it would create an open window to place my snowflake in. I love how that turned out. I coated that snowflake with glossy accents so it shines nicely. I also embossed snowflakes onto the belly of the snowman too. I added diamond stickles in little dots all over to resemble snow. I had to cut one piece of the scarf away so it didn't cover the snowflake. I added some bling to it's cheeks and scarf. I used the pink ribbon as a way to hang it. I really love how this turned out!

Now, I'm sending you to Stephanie who is your next stop on the hop. Remember, if you get lost along the way, CLICK HERE to start at the beginning.
