I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday! My family Christmas celebration is actually today. We waited so my nephew and his family were able to join us! I can't wait to see them!
Make sure to join in the fun with Drunken Stampers Challenge #156--Person: Marilyn Monroe or Anything Glamorous or Glam! Most of the design team focused on Marilyn, but I went with glamorous. Make sure to check the other design team members' blogs!
Both stamps are from Crackerbox Palace Rubber Stamps. Their site is being updated, so check back later. I paper pieced the glamorous woman and the mirror. The pearls are from Zva Creative and the purple papers are from Club Scrap. My friend Vicky B. came up with the idea of using thin copper wire to make bobby pins! Such a great idea...there are some in her hair, but they are hard to see due the pink curlers.
Make sure to create something using Challenge #156-Person: Marilyn Monroe or Anything Glamorous or Glam! You could become our next Life of the Party!
You have until Jan 3rd at 11:59pm PST to post your link. I'd love to see what you can do with this challenge!

Welcome to the Sweet & Sparkly Blog Hop brought to you by the All that Stickles design team!
The holidays are just around the corner, and the ATS design team has put together some fabulous, sparkly projects to help get in the holiday spirit!
If you're looking to start at the beginning of the hop, please visit All that Stickles. If you've come from Laura's blog, you're in the right place.
Every year I make some homemade gift for all my family members. This year it is going to be Cappuccino mix. I am trying to perfect a Gingerbread Cookie Cappuccino to go along with these cute cans I picked up on clearance at Joann's a year or two ago. They were so inexpensive I just had to get them! The Gingerbread Cookie Cappuccino recipe is almost there so if you're interested in the recipe when I am finished, please leave me your e-mail below.
This is the finished tin on which I used Christmas Red, Yellow, Champagne, True Blue, Frosted Lace, and Fired Brick Red Distress Stickles.
These photos are of the original tin with no Stickles. Cute, but not very sparkly!
