Who Knew I Could Like Glitter

if you can't see the mermaid charm click on the photo to enlarge it
 Glitter!  That's the Paper Pretties challenge this week.  Talk about a challenge.  Well for me it's a challenge.  Most of my scrapping buddies know I cringe when the glitter comes out.  I love the way it looks but I hate the way it gets into everything.  Heck, I'm still finding those hellacious micro beads on my desk and I used them a month ago. 

Use glitter, I did, and lots of it.  I cut out the plant like things and coated their edges with glitter.  It looks a lot more glittery in real life. 
You can use a lot or a little, just use some glitter and play with us.  Take a few minutes to check out the samples by the other DT members and get all the deets about the challenge and the prize.  Then go get inky and go back to the blog to link up your creation.

Would you like some more chances to win Paper Pretties stamps?  That’s a dumb question, isn’t it.  This month Paper Pretties is sponsoring Midnight Madness and this week they are sponsoring the Crazy for Challenges challenge  to use dies.   That’ three challenges this week that you can enter so go get inky.
