Altered Pages "Glitter and Gleam" Challenge Project

The December Challenge at
Glitter and Gleam

It hasn't really been announced yet ... in fact,
we haven't even got the winners from November's Rusted Challenge yet.

But I had a little spare time while I was waiting for other 
projects to dry, so I got an early start!

I started out with a double fold picture frame album box from 7 Gypsies, and covered it with the 
gorgeous Core'dination Glitter Silk Paper from Altered Pages.  To adhere it, I used the terrific Double Stick 1/2" Tape also from Altered Pages. I love it because it has a heavy duty adhesive on 
it - and there is no waiting around time for drying! Then I finished blinging out the front with various
findings and stash goodies, like rhinestones, crystal floral sprays, shimmery snowflakes and ribbon.
The poinsietta in the middle of the German Foil Scrap framed niche is cut from a Sizzix die, and adhered with a Wobble spring, so it bounces and makes me smile.

When the double fold doors on the box are opened, there is an accordian-folded album, filled with
lots of Glitter and Gleam! Whenever I think of anything that gleams, the first thing that comes to
mind is Paris ... though I have to admit that MOST things make me think of Paris! 

Unfortunately, the glitter and gleam and bling and shimmer don't really show well in these photos - 
even though in real life they fairly well glisten with a plethora of rhinestones, jewels, shimmer mists, glitter, glimmer mist and lacquers.
I'm not sure when the challenge will be posted on the blog Altered Pages Challenges, but check it out regularly - and if you haven't seen the Rusted challenge projects yet, go take a look! The prize package for the Altered Pages Challenges winner is always a terrific supply trove!

Glad you could spend a few minutes with me today.

... now, go make something beautiful!
