More Christmas trees and Thought Bubbles!

Hello, my friends. As I write this I'm waiting on a batch of old fashioned peanut butter cookies to be done baking in the oven. You know the kind - the ones with the cross hatched fork marks on the top. Yum! I've been craving them for a couple days now and finally made them tonight (my lucky husband). :)

I'm excited to share more design team projects! These are the remaining projects (except for one special one that I'm saving for a later date. You'll LOVE it!)

This beautiful standing Christmas tree is by new design team member, Erika Taylor. It has an old fashioned feel to it, doesn't it?

I love the vintage looking image and if you notice in the close up photo, she used a crackle medium. Here's how she created the look.

I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glam to paint the tree. Stamped swirls on it with Versafine, then added Crackle Medium to really age it. Went over bits and pieces with a sanding block, then started embellishing.

So pretty, Erika.

And our new Thought Bubble was a HUGE hit with our Design Team girls! They really created some fun designs too!

Regina made her shape into a CLOCK! How cool is that?! I love the "Once upon a time" saying and the swirly bling she used! You can visit her blog for all the products she used.

Super cute, Regina!

Say what? It looks like I'm not the only one obsessed with chalkboard paint! Jennifer created this *awesome* fridge chalkboard with super heavy duty magnets! I love it, Jennifer! We love leaving notes for each other in our house. What a fantastic gift for Christmas too. Tutorial coming soon...

Alright, my friends. I need to get to bed. My cookies are done (I was eating them while writing, don't mind me). :) My Max is the most amazing little baby but he's still up about every 3 hours and I'm feeling it tonight. See you soon.
