HIMCR Glitz & Glam Blog Hop and Challenge!

Hi Friends! Welcome to this weeks Hiding in my Craft Room Challenge & Blog Hop!

This week is a Glitz & Glam themed blog hop!  Again we had some fun digital stamp files to play with.  DT members received all different ones, and we went to town!  These are my favorite digital files yet!  You get a chance to win some too!  See below to find out how.

First here is my project.  When I saw this cutie, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her!  I had these great "blank" polka dot bags ( can they be blank and polka dot?  Probably not, but work with me, k?) and I knew she would be fabulous adorning one.  I colored her with colored pencils, then "fussy cut" her.  Which means I used tiny tipped scissors and painstakingly cut around each of her edges, so she was without a background or border.  Then I layered some red and white card stock so the pretty girl would stand out.  Lastly, a Happy Birthday medallion, a bow and some glitz.  I so wish I had that adorable dress she is wearing!

Now, if you want to win these digi stamp files by The Scrapbook Stamp Society, there are TWO ways or double your chances to win!  You can win 3 of the 5 images (you pick) featured by the design team.
