H is for Halleigh

As my scanner almost always does, it really gives great detail to the forefront objects and blurs the objects that are just a centimeter behind it....needless to say, this picture is not this blurry in real life!
Here is a little project I made that was less than $3 overall to make! I bought the frame from Michael's for $1 and painted it pastel yellow. Then, I took a sheet of paper from the Sweet Pea paper stack and cut it to place over the frame. I cut out the center of the sheet to leave room for the opening and glued the paper down with Tombow.
For the decoration, I first cut a swirl out of a sheet of Pretty in Pink with my big shot. Next, I took a chipboard letter H and dabbed it in VersaMark. I sprinkled Heat and Stick powder all over that and heated it up with my heat gun. Finally, I sprinkled chunky pink glitter on that and re-heated it to set the glitter in the glue.
For my final step, I used Crystal Effects to glue the small circles onto the swirls - it seems to hold the 3-dimensional objects in place a little bit better than just glue dots.
Give this little project a try - it will come together in a snap!

Very cute! I love the little Sweet Pea pieces - I have a lot of the little circles left over. This would be a good way to use them!
