Here is my BLOG HOP project :)



I used the Christmas Poinsettia Lantern Set.  I printed the included text background, wrinkled and distress inked and shimmer sprayed with gold.  The lantern and poinsettia are pre-coloured ( set comes with outlines to colour as well).  I used distress ink coloured and wrinkled seam binding and my usual favourite pearl string ;).

OK MY SPECIAL WORD FOR YOU IS "FRED"

Now please go to ROBIN'S Blog to continue your journey!  Have fun!
