By The Cute and Girly Challenge #2!

Happy November!
Another month has passed and it's time for a new challenge at By The Cute and Girly!
This months theme is Winter Wonderland which gives you the opportunity to get out all the sparkly stuff, snowflakes, ribbons and more.

I found another challenge that these projects worked for too.
Use Your Stash wanted something old and I've had this Snowman for two years just waiting to be dressed up!
Scrap, Stamp and Doodle wanted "Anything But a Card"
Challenge Up Your Life wanted you to "Pimp It Up" which in their defintion was make something prettier than it was originally.

This started life as a plain chipboard album in the shape of a snowman.
I used the supr new Basic Grey papers called Eskimo Kisses and then I found lots of embellishments from my over flowing Christmas/Winter colelction.

This is the other side of the album.
Some of the products are Mary Engelbriet 3D stickers, Prima flowers, printed brads and more.

Next comes a wooden snowman that I've had for a couple of years now.
He was really simple to do. I painted his head and hands and added more Basic Grey paper to his body. I added Basic Grey buttons with twine and finally I used faux stitching all around him for a little homemade style.

You can enter any type of craft you like at By The Cute and Girly! so please go and raid you stash, get creating and go share it with all of us, who know's you may win a great prize!
