Simply Sunday: It's A Celebration

Good Afternoon!! Happy New Years, hope you all had a safe and happy New Year's Eve. It was very quite here, we played games as a family and I managed to make it to midnight!!! Today is another Simply Sunday challenge over at Getting Cricky With K Andrew. Today's challenge is called "It's a Celebration" celebrate a new year, a new house, a new job.... Well I decided to take the "....." route and created a project celebrating my daughter. For Christmas my mom gave me a Paper Crafts Magazine book and while flipping through it I came across these photo cubes. I decided to make one of my daughter.

What I Used:
K Andrew Design Art Stamps: Winter Wishes "Best Gift"
Tags Bags Boxes and More: cube 9"
Plantin School Book: square cut outs 1.5" inserted into the cube on my gypsy
Stretch Your Imagination: frame 1.6"
Flower Shoppe: flowers cut at 2" each
Stickles: Crystals
White Ink
Cuttlebug Die:  not sure of the name of it (used for the sentiment)
Hot Glue Gun for the flowers
4 wallet size pictures of my daughter

Winter Wishes Buy HERE

I really enjoyed making these and they are so easy. I made one for each of the daycare kids. I won't show pictures of theirs as I don't have permission from the parents to put their kids picture on here but they were the same as my daughters just different colours.

Back to the stamps sets:
At least $1 from  each stamp set sold goes to a different charity. The bonus sets are back in stock  "ALL orders $25.00 or more, please remember to add a FREE mini stamp set to your cart--Merci or Sweet Wishes (If you spend $50.00 or more--please add both--just our gift to you" So what are you waiting for head on over to the store HERE and pick up a few sets for yourself  and/or for someone else. Also don't forget to hop on over to Kristal's blog HERE and see what the rest of the Design Team made and see how you can enter your own projects. Don't forget to leave them some love!!

Have A Great Day

God Bless
