When it's snowing -it's time to Glimmer!

Well - I'm passing the time during this snowy night spraying my "Elixir of Life" on my latest mini-album made using my new bind-it-all ! - Glimmer Mist makes even snowy, windy nights a little bit better! Tonight's selection is Chocolate Covered Cherries and Dazzling Diamonds - but I think I need to add another color....hmm Frozen Lake sounds appropriate!!

Here is the front and 2nd page page --

The first is a clear transparent plastic sheet that I got from a clearance bin about a year ago - made by Magic Scraps - it has a few yellow spots on it.  I like how the one spot is over the "FREE" space!




I put a Grungeboard "mask" over it and sprayed one side with the Choc. Covered Cherries, and a little dazzeling diamonds - then flipped it over and sprayed it with some Frozen Lake.  You can see it better here:



Notice the "oops"? - I punched both sides  of the clear sheet with the bind-it-all, as the first punch was one too many holes - but it now will give me a place to tie fibers and ribbons! - I always say - "There are NO mistakes in Scrapbooking - only opportunities to embellish!"

Page 2  on the right -is a Tattered Angels Bingo board - sprayed with the 3 colors above - plus a little Pineapple that was sitting on my desk - 'cause I am getting a little chilly and wanted to think tropical! LOL!  I put a paper towel over it while it was wet and rolled the brayer over it -- now on to the back and other pages - hopefully I'll get to these tomorrow - I've got my fingers crossed for a snow day!

Night all!

1/2 Snow Day!!

WOW - my office closed at 12:30 today due to the snow storm we are in
 the middle of.  As soon as that decision was made - it turned to rain!
- but now 2 hrs later - it is "pouring" snow again! 
We could get 18 - 24 inches!  YIKES!!

Well -I guess this gives me a chance to "play" with the Bind-it-All that
I got for Christmas, and have been frightened of! LOL!

- I just watched some instructional videos on Youtube and
after I make myself a nice hot cup of tea - I am going to give it another try!

Wish me luck!  I hope to post some pics tonight!

Keep warm and safe everyone!
