Here is my project and I really love how it looks and turned out!!! I gave it as a gift to a friend of mine, She was excited to get it. I made her a set of three matching Candles to display on her new dinner table she just bought. Here is a pic of one. I forgot to take a pic of all three before gave it to her. (BOO ME!!!)

I used Velum and printed this pattern from the AUDREY cart onto it. Then I cut it out to fit the candles, added ribon, bling, and TA! DA! Instant Home Decor. I love this idea. You can match any of the patterns to your home.


Here it is with out the candle lit.
Love the look the added bling gave it!!

Candle is on. Isn't she pretty!!! =)

Close up. The candle lit gives it such a pretty illumination.

Hope you enjoyed this HOP!!! Go check out the amazing PAM.

Imagine That Blog Hop

Welcome crafty friends!!

    Happy Saturday!!! Welcome to our first ever Imagine That Blog Hop hosted by the one and only Sandra 365 day of Cricut. She has put together a great group of girls that are using their Imagine and creating the most bueatiful projects!!! I was excited when she asked me to join. If you are stopping by from the wonderful and TALENTED Elsa then you are at the right spot.

If you would like to start at the beginning then CLICK HERE

    On to the goodies, I dusted off my Imagine (opps did I say that out loud) I mean I turned on my Imagine and started to create. For this hop I used a few different mediums that I normally don't use. Today I made my card using transperancy film. I printed out a pattern from the Audrey cartridge (I LOVE THIS CART) and created a unique card. (well at least I think it is) This card looks so so so much better in person. The pictures do not do it justice. Here's today's project. Enjoy!!!!


Can you tell I used transperancy film?
I back the film with pink cardstock

A close up. You can tell that the ink is a bit spotty. I had to turn the transperancy
backwards so the ink wouldn't smear. I added bling to the outside.

A ribbon in hot satin pink and some paper flowers bring it all together.



I hope you enjoy todays card. I have another project for you tomorrow. Don't forget to come back. It's going to be awesome!!! I saved the BEST for LAST!!! YAY YAY YAY......

Now, on to the awesomest (yes, I know, a new word)  Pam at Simply Pam. Her creations are so inspiring!!! You won't be disappointed I tell ya =)

Don't forget, in order to win the grand prize you have to leave a comment on everyone's blog. Have an amazing time hopping!!! See you tomorrow!!!! =)
