With my final project I went STICKLE CRAZY! Oh yeah!  I decided to do a different color scheme and to do a layout. I used a picture I took during one of our rare snow days here in Hot Springs, Arkansas. This picture is from 2 years ago. This was in my neighbors' yard and she had all these beautiful decorations and some were covered in snow.
I used my Imagine to make the background paper and actually ALL THE Paper products... were from the cartridge SNOW ANGEL. I love this cart! I used the Christmas Red, Lime Green, Crystal of STICKLES now in two areas I tried Waterfall on the "&" symbol but ended up getting it on me.. and I tried Icicle but something in the glitter didn't sit right so  I switched to Crystal and then it shined right.. I put it on the snow that was on the letters. I tried to leave some of them a little bare so you could see what it really looked like.  
Thank you Christie Beatie! She had Zip Dry and guess what.. told me that HOBBY LOBBY sells it. So then  I went to HL AND... they honored the coupon from my phone! I got the last bottle yippeeee.  I also used my Glue Glider Pro. I used My Irock on one of the ornaments, then on another ornament a Twinkle Brad from CTMH , and on the last ornament a Gemstone Brad from Recollections. I also learned I could used my Irock and bling up the plain white snowflake brads that are on the two upper corners of the picture. 
Warning!!!! Took several shots because the lighting was giving me troubles.  
So here goes:

Using regular lighting on a chair kind of bland

Twinkle Brad from CTMH

Recollections - Gemstone Brad

Used Irock Bling

Stickles-Christmas Red, Lime Green, Crystal

Used Irock on top of the brad cool huh!

Used Auto Correct for brightness a little better

The picture.. seemed melancholy or peaceful..
