Perfectly Rustics goes all glittery

A little bit of sad news today - I have been on the Perfectly Rustics Design team for a year, they were my very first design team. Colin and Kym are finding it harder and harder to keep up with the demands of a challenge blog so they have decided to close it. So with that in mind we decided that the blog should go out on a high note so the final challenge is all about glitter in any form, whether it be loose, tape or glitter glue we want to see you sparkle, here is my project.

This month over at Diecut Divas we want to know how you spend your time in Summer. Are you beach side or picnicing or just  enjoying every moment of sunshine, that is what my summer is about. One of my kids favourite thing to do is blow bubbles so when I saw this Art by Miran image Bubbles Brea, I instantly thought of afternoons in the backyard with bubbles and sunshine.
