Just Us Girls #221 - Photo Inspiration

 photo JUGS221picA.jpg 



This week Lisa has provided this fun inspiration picture for us to work from.  Hard to believe 2013 is almost over!  It's been quite the year and I'm actually looking forward to a fresh starts in 2014.

I decided to go the tag route this time and focused on the gold and sparkle.  Some shimmer paper from the dollar store (oh how I love our local dollar store!) and Reverse Confetti's tag die (loooove this die!) along with PTI's number border die and I was good to go.

The rest of the  JUGS team, along with our fabulous December GD Jan Del Bone (thanks for your awesome cards this month, Jan!), have some wonderful samples to get your inspiration going, so head on over to the Just Us Girls blog and check out what they've created.  Then put your creative genes to work and add your card/project to the challenge post on the JUGS blog for the chance to be chosen as the Chic of the Week.  Plus if you are chosen as Chic of the Week, you could be invited to be a Guest Designer.

Have a great weekend!

What a gorgeous way to say Happy New Year! (Michaels didn't have any of this twine this year. I sorely missed it as mine is almost gone!)
