Scrap Around The World - with the Flying Unicorns

Scrap Around the World - with the Flying Unicorns

The Unicorns are hosting the popular challenge site, Scrap Around the World this month.   The idea is to draw inspiration from something on the board below.    It's quite a broad challenge so anything goes.  

OK so this doesn't have the color palette , no lace, no bikes or even flowers!  You say to yourself, "Jennifer...what are you thinking?"

What I saw first was the sunflare in the photo before I saw the bike.   I used the script, music elenet and the rope/twine.    Tis the season for Santa, he is a worldly figure and so this is what  I deceided to use for my Scrap Around the World

 Can't think of anyone who gets around the world like Santa..all in one night?  Incredible.  Cheers to the big man!  

I used the cool new "Wicker Christmas Wreaths" from 2Crafty as well as the words " Twas the Night Before  Christmas".  I stained them and glittered them up with some Prima glitter.  

Come and play with the Unicorns at Scrap Around the World and visit the Unicorns home as well!
And check out the amazing Chippies from 2Crafty available at the Flying Unicorn - or on the 2Crafty Facebook page.

Prima 12 Days of Christmas - Finnabair Day

The rules are simple...Prima will post 12 days of Christmas cards on their blog.  You can pick your favorite card and lift it, then post your version to the blog.    Make sure you label it with the day you selected to lift.  For example call your project, "Sue - Day 3 ".

The theme of Day 3 is the use of Finnabair's products.  Any one of products...just pick and create.  

That's exactly what I did.  Finnabair's Metal Mechanicals inspired me to create a poinsettia flower.  Dot the die cut leaves with Finnabair 's Glass Glitter and I have a festive card.
