Happy New Year from FMU!!!

Opps scheduled this post at 5.30 AM rather than PM.  *sigh*  oh well you get a head start if you've stopped by to say hello!  Hope you take the time to join us!

Happy New Year! Oh where do the years go? I really believe that as a child the years drag by so seems that it takes ages to get to Easter or your birthday or Christmas. As adults though, when the cost of those events comes out of your pocket...LOL they come around all too quickly. However, it is time to C E L E B R A T E a brand new year.

Here at the Friday Mashup, each one of the Design Team wishes you all a very happy, peaceful and prosperous new year. Personally I wish you days filled with sunshine, love and laughter.

Nothing better than sparkles (bling) to set you in the mood to Celebrate so get out all the sparkly stuff in your stash and create a celebration project! I'm so excited to see what you all create.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project that "Sparkles".
  2. Or Make a project "Celebrating the New Year".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project "Celebrating the New Year that Sparkles" .

 I went with subtle sparkle.  Shimmery White card, Champagne Mist shimmer paint on the raised areas and sprayed on the black background and matting on the sentiment.  Oh and of course a few rhinestones!

The fabulously talented Friday Mashup Design Team have also created some amazing projects for your inspiration.

Happy New Year.

  3. Great challenge Kasey! I really like your embossing with the rhinestones added in--very elegant looking.

    When I was growing up my dad always used to say how quickly time passed, and I never understood until I had kids of my own.
