Diva Again!

Today, my friend Becky gave me another "You Make My Day Award," she came over to my blog to tell me and found the other one. Thanks Becky--you sure made MY day!



And today I was a DIVA again. This week I was asked to participate in the Diva Scrapbook Challenges on Splitcoaststampers with the Gina K Design team.
My challenge is to create a layout that uses an image stamp as an embellishment. Simple enough. Check out all the challenges the other Gina K gals created here. Come play along. Gina is going to randomly select two participants on Monday morning to receive a free stamp set (check out the thread for details!) How cool is that!? Play along--you have a great chance of winning!!!

Here is my layout---it is another page for the book I am creating of my family Christmas card photos. I matched it to the colors of the other page I did a few posts back because they will be side by side in the book.



Materials used: Stamps-Got Snow?, Punchy Words (Gina K Designs); cardstock-soft sky, white, red; ink-red, black; Copic markers; liquid applique; heat tool; Cuttlebug, snowflake embossing folder and Nestabilities; snowflake punch (Martha Stewart); creative candy (a muse); circle punch (SU!); photo corner punch (SU!); ribbon (SU!).

As promised, I told you that I would not only share my good news with you, but also my bad news. I submitted three projects to the PaperCrafts Magazine call and none of them were picked up. Boohoo! Tomorrow is another day.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to add a comment to the blog candy post below---you have until Monday morning.
