Paper Playtime~~Queen Blog Hop!

Hello all!!! Welcome to our very first hop!!! 



If you came from Melissa, you are on the right track!! If not, make sure you go to Paper Playtime to start!!! You don't want to miss all the fun and all the CANDY!!!

Today, I have for you something that is soo fun to play with!!! I finally bought some Shrinky Dinks and created a couple of charm bracelets that would be perfect for stocking stuffers!!! 

Now, keep in mind that this is the VERY first time I play with these!!! Also, it's the VERY first time I create charm bracelets!!! But, I know my mamma will be so happy!!



This first bracelet I created using Market Street BFFs Stamps! Now, do not look closely at the coloring!!! I need  A LOT of practice!!!

I also bought Shrinky Dinks for pictures and created a charm bracelet for my mom of her four kids!!! 



When using Shrinky Dinks for pictures you have to play with the transparency... since I could NOT figure that out, I just went lighter on the pictures. Still need practice on this too!

I love how they came out... remember everything we do is a learning experience and I will definitely be creating more of these!!!

Now onto your next blog!!!


Oh wait!!! What is a hop with out CANDY!!! 
Leave a comment on my blog and I will send the first bracelet to a lucky person!!!

You do not have to follow in order to win, but I would love it if you did!
