CTMH Technique Blog Hop - "All Lit Up"

Thanks for joining me and seven other CTMH Consultants who are showcasing the "All Lit Up" technique showcased on page 88 of the NEW Annual Inspirations!  We were challenged to use glitter paper for an eye-catching and exciting look.  

If you are coming from Wendy's Blog, you are on the right track.  The hop starts at Debi's Blog but it is a circle so feel free to keep on hoppin'!  You can find a list of participants on the bottom of this post.

I decided to use some Silver Glitter paper to bling up this 5" x 7" acrylic frame which serves as a make-shift sticky note holder.  I used the "Glitter Glam" stamp set which I thought was fitting for the task at hand.  I used a sheet of our fabulous Paper Fundamentals Whimsy Assortment as the background - I LOVE IT!  It is absolutely beautiful and all of the various patterns are too fun!  I decided to use Outdoor Denim cardstock to complement the Smoothie pattern on the background and used our Scallop Border Punch to add some decorative design.  I gave the "Glitter Girl" sentiment some color by using the Smoothie ink pad and Blending Pen.  
I thought it was fun how this came out and you cannot beat the cost of creating one and the practicality of having one at your fingertips!  Anyone love sticky notes more than me?!  I am addicted to those too!
 It was a little challenging to get a good picture of the frame without the glare.  :)  Oooh!  I used our Chalk Marker to write on the dark sticky note.  Too fun, right?!  :)
Here are four of the six Glitter Papers we have to offer.  Click here to view all of them.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to head over to Haley's Blog but not before leaving a comment!  :)  I would love to hear from you!

Happy hoppin' and HAPPY FRIDAY!
