Design D.I.V.A.S. Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop


Today is the 3rd Wednesday of the month and that means another Design D.I.V.A.S. Oldies But Goodies 
BLOG HOP!  
 This is when we use neglected and forgotten items from our stashes.  The Design D.I.V.A.S. is a private Facebook group, which is a branch of the Original Design D.I.V.A.S. on the Splitcoaststampers website. The acronym for the D.I.V.A.S is, Divine, Inspirational, Virtuous, Artistic (or annointed) Sistahs. This is a very talented and supportive group, which I'm blessed to be a part of . 

 If you came here from the multi-talented Cindy's blog you are on the right track.  She is a tough act to follow and I am honored to be in her company! To start at the beginning of the hop pop on over to see what our amazing and sweet Carolyn has put together.


Recently I was sorting through dusty boxes and came across 3D Memory Keepers from Deja View.  I think I got these for scrapbook pages to hold trinkets, coins, and other keepsakes.  Since they are in two pieces and seal rather tightly they hold the FloraCraft Diamond Dust quite well, too.  So, inside I used these adorable little penquin foam stickers with just enough "snow" for them to dance in. 


Even the penquin paper is obg, since I haven't used it since last year's Christmas cardmaking. Along the top I added red trim shaped with Martha Stewart border punch.  Dangling from the scallops are little stick-on snow balls.  I use lots of these during the season!


Here is a close-up of the happy penguins.  They make me think of the adorable movie "Happy Feet".

It's been a fabulous blog hop so far, right?  There are actually more stops!  Hop on over to Dru's where you will surely be delighted by her gorgeous creations!  Thanks for stopping by today!

Can you tell me what brand of paper you used for the background... I just love it.

Barb said...

Shannon, I wish I could remember the paper I used but it I first bought it over two years ago. I have looked for more but haven't found it. Thanks for asking, though.
