The Paper Players Challenge #126 - It's Time to Say Farewell

Well, this post is a little sad, as it is time to farewell the lovely ladies at The Paper Players (Ann, Anne Marie, Jaydee, LeAnne & Nance), who have welcomed Amy, Dawn, Jen & myself as Guest Designers for the past six months.  This entire group of ladies are so sweet & are such a talented group of crafters, it has been a pleasure working with them each week.

Anyway, this is the final Paper Players challenge for 2012 & Ann is hosting, with a wonderful, seasonal theme:-


& here is my project:-


I have used an MFT snowflake die to cut two snowflakes from my main shimmery white panel, which has then been popped up on dimensionals & layered over some gorgeous teal glitter paper.  I've cut another snowflake from SU's glimmer paper & popped that up on a dimensional.  Rhinestones & tiny crystals have been added to the centres of each snowflake:-


Hope you can join us with this extended challenge (closes December 28).  The rest of the Team have some beautiful snowflake creations for you:-

Ann Schach - The Stampin' Schach
Anne Marie Hile - Stampin' Anne
Jaydee - Jaydee's Stamping
LeAnne Pugliese - Wee Inklings
Nance Leedy - Canopy Crafts
Amy White - White House Stamping
Dawn Easton - Treasure Oiler Designz
Jen Arkfeld - Stamped Silly

A big congratulations to the new Guest Designers too -
Amy O'Neill, Brian King, Jen Nelson, Justin Krieger & Sandy Mathis.

Hope everyone has a safe & wonderful Christmas season.

Thank you to everyone who has visited this year & especially to those who have taken the time to comment.  Your support is very much appreciated. See you in 2013!

♥ Helen  :)

This is stunning Helen...I'm sure it's even more so IRL where the glitter would show better. I'm sure TPP will miss your wonderful creations!
