Jingle Jingle Jingle! And a new exciting venture for me...

Hi everyone!
Happy Tuesday!

Our sign is up, I love how it turned out!
Take a look at our website, it's the temporary site, our permanent site will have tons of unique features like a custom room builder etc. It should be live in a week or so
In the meantime here's our site:

Now, the BIG reveal of my Christmas mini album!
I used a Clear Scraps Mixables album for this and the lovely papers are Pink Paislee Mistletoe & Co.
This was SO much fun to do, I really am enjoying alcohol inks!
The glitter used is Pink Paislee Pixee Stix in Cream Soda & Chocolate
I also used the PP press ons & Expressions glitter alphabets in Berry

I will be teaching this class at The Scrapbook Workshoppe on Friday, December 4th @ 6:30 PM
The cost is $48 and I know this will fill up fast!
