Nutcracker Sweet :)

Hi everyone :)

Graphic 45 has a challenge this month and I wanted to play along with that and also I wanted to play along with a couple of challenges for Scrap Fit :)

Graphic 45's challenge was to make something using their "Nutcracker Sweet" line -- this is one of my fave collections of theirs!! And one of Scrap Fit's challenges this month is to make a 'scenery' on your project -- so my first project is for both of their challenges :) I made a canvas using Nutcracker Sweet and I added Brookie's first ballet slippers :)



I used Helmar's 450 Quick Dry to adhere my goodies on here :) I got the Nutcracker Sweet papers from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :)




I created a "book" for the front of my canvas and I used Helmar's liquid Scrap Dots to have it stand out :)






I also made a second project for the Graphic 45 challenge -- I made a star using wine corks (and for those that know me -- I actually don't drink at all, lol.... my friend's Mother-In-Law gave these to me to use with my crafts!) -- then I misted the wine corks and added Nutcracker Sweet papers to it!! :)







And I also made a layout for Scrap Fit's challenge of "being thankful" :) I used Simple Stories for my layout that I got from BlueMoonScrapbooking.com :)










Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
