PPA 58: Pearls, Pearls, Pearls (and a few rhinestones too)!

Happy Friday Everyone,
When I saw that the challenge at Pals Paper Arts was to use pearls, I knew I would have no problem meeting this challenge. I am making a box set of cards for my sister's birthday and this is one of them. Of course, I couldn't just use pearls - I had to add some rhinestones too! The seed pearls on the Eiffel Tower are hard to see, but if you click on the picture, you can see them. I love Chic Boutique stamp set, there is something fun and feminine about it. Thanks for looking and stop by anytime!


Stamps: Chic Boutique
Ink: Pink Pirouette, Basic Gray
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Basic Gray, Whisper White
Accessories: Basic Pearls, Pink rhinestones, Elegant Bouquet EF, Corner Rounder punch

Back To School

Hi Everyone,
Today I head back for my first day of the school year. The students are not in until Tuesday next week, but we teachers have meetings and PD all day today. Each year I get myself a new notebook to record planning and ideas etc... This year was no different; I love my pilgrimage to Staples, I love wandering up and down the aisles, and I love looking at all the new designs of notebooks - I take my time choosing which one will hold my thoughts for the year. This time out I chose a plain black spiral book and altered the cover. Who can resist the delicious Elegant Soiree DSP from SU! I love the way my notebook turned out and I can't wait to put pen to paper!
