Im so very in love with the Jubilee paper and coordinating embellishments, i found this old pin board and i thought it could use a facelift..Jubilee to the rescue! Im still not 100% if i like it or not and the lighting does not help at all but hey, it works and it looks was better then before.
So i painted the trim super white and just added the coordinating chip board and some fabric. Glue dots were my best friend for this project.


I used some scraps on this grouping and i even used a piece of old paper protector and trimmed it up so i can have a little handy erasable board to jot down a quick reminder. I just love the little pie flair!


Here is my favorite part of the 3 clusters i made, the little piggy needed a cute green collar..dont ya think? 

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Nancy Klein's Blog

May 1st Hearts of the west Blog Hop

Our fearless leader Nancy Klein chose our first color challenge, Buttercup, Sorbet, New England Ivy, Gypsy and lagoon as well as the basic color pallet.  

This is a circular blog hop, so matter where you start if you keep going you will end back where you started and you can find a full list at the end of this post, just in case.

If you came from  Diane Fischer from Paper Crafters Sorority then you're in the right order. 

Here is my cute little project, it is a wonderful quick base and bling necklace. This fun necklace features a peacock feather center that is a sticker that coordinates with the base and bling line from Close to My heart (of course!) 



I use pliers and took off the 2" of extra chain from the top and attached to the side of the pendant with the chain and hung a key and owl, also from the base and bling line


A close up of the pendant and hanging embellishments. Did you notice the cute card it is hanging on? I cut it from the Artiste at 3". the chain hangs in a little bag inside the stamped package with coordinating washi tape.

Keeping with the color pallet, i made this cute card for a family member. Everything is also Close to my Heart and other then the sliver trim it is all scraps. yay!! use them scraps!



Also if you're wondering, yes i did use the wrong yellow (opps)..in all my projects even the card.... if not then carry on and forget i said anything  :-)


Thanks for stopping buy and please feel free to comment.  We just love reading them! 

Your next stop is Christine Marshall from Perfect Finishes..Always
