TSG129 Holiday Decor

Hey there everyone!!! Sorry about the lack of posting on my blog this last week.  My parents just got back from holiday so I've been spending time with them, working and well, just plain old hanging out.  My craft desk got neglected, hence so did my blog...

This week at There She Goes it's all about creating a holiday project!!! I had so many ideas and to be honest... so many alterables to choose from!!! Yikes!!! I am one of those people who always buy things to alter and then they just sit there...  But with this challenge, I was able to sift through them and I ended up using a K & Company photo 4x4x4 photo cube that I purchased at Michael's on clearance.  *** Sorry about the photo quality!!! It's late in the evening and I just can't get a good photo for the life of me***

For my project, I used almost all of the images from the TSG set called "Snowy Days" which is my favorite holiday set because of its' whimsical nature.  The DP I've used was MME, Echo Park, Crate Paper and Bella Boulevard.  (As you can see, there was no DP loyalty!!!). 

This side of the cube uses the snowboarding puppy that I've watercolored with my Tombow Markers.  The blue DP has been torn to create a snowbank and then using my Xyron I was able to add Dazzling Diamonds to create a glitter like effect (although it isn't showing in the picture).  I've fussy cut the snowboarding puppy and then popped him up on Dimensionals to make it look like he's making a jump. 

This side was also coloured with my Tombow Markers and then I added some Baker's Twine so that I could highlight the sentiment.  A clear rhinestone was then added to the snowflake.

Isn't he just so cute??? Love this little guy!!! I've watercolored the image with my Tombow Markers - easy peasy.  I then curved the sentiment on my acrylic block and stamped it in Basic Black.  I've never done this before but I'm sure I'll do it again!!!

I think this might be one of my favorite sides of the cute with all of its bling!!! LOL.  You know me and my bling!!!

I had so much fun creating my photo cube and can't to display it once all of my Christmas decorations get put out.  I'm itching to put them out now but the household has told me that it's way too early!! Grinches I tell ya!!! LOL.  (It's after Thanksgiving here in Canada so I'm in full get ready for Christmas mode).  I've always been a non-traditional girl when it comes to Christmas so this will be a perfect addition to my holiday decor.  I have a funky white Christmas tree and all of my decorations are hot pink, turquoise blue and lime green.  Love it!!!

We'd love for you to participate this week so head on over to the TSG blog to check out what the Trendsetters have made!!!
