An Itty Bitty Monday with some BIG NEWS & Design Memory Craft GIVEAWAY!

Did you SEE my exciting news? Click HERE. :)




I am SUPER EXCITED to be joining the Scrap Review team!! :)


I decided to celebrate a bit {plus it is my son's b-day today!}


Stamps: Gigi Party, May KOM Think Happy Thoughts

I have been playing with some fabulous NEW product, Mix & Match Color Gelatos AND Mixed Media Sampler set from Faber Castell.
I will be using them ALL week long so be sure to check back!




Don't you LOVE how those eyes sparkle a bit more? Well...it may be hard for you to see...in the picture but they do in real life. :) I used a Faber-Castell Blue Metallic pen to color the END. So cool! :)


I also used a GELATO and paint brush to add some yummy color to the edge. I love how it softens it up. Such a cool product! SO CREAMY! :)

DO YOU WANT TO PLAY WITH SOME TOO?



Just post a comment BELOW and you will enter. I will be giving away a Mix & Match Media Sampler AND a Color Gelatos & Clear Stamp kit!
