This is my daughter Mandy and her husband Steve and they are celebrating New Years!  I love these photos and it goes perfectly with More Than Words Challenge.

January 2017 Main Challenge

Happy 2017 everyone!
May the new year give you loads of reasons to celebrate 
and have wonderful days that are filled with laughter, love and creativity!
We have a whole new set of challenges ready for you this year
and we cannot wait to share them with you starting with this one for January:
Our Main Challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.
The challenge is open to layouts, canvases and art journal pages only.
Make sure to read our instructions below carefully!
Word Inspiration - CELEBRATE
Creative Challenge - BLING
What does the word CELEBRATE inspire you to create?
You can choose to add the word somewhere on your project or simply
be inspired to create from it.  Please explain in your blog post
how the word inspired you, if not already obvious.

More Than Words is not only celebrating this month the start of a brand new year.
We are also celebrating our first anniversary in the blogosphere!
We have lots of reasons to party, and nothing screams 'Let's Party!' better
than BLING!  Whether it be sequins, gems, rhinestones, pearls, chunks of glitter glass... we want you to 'bling' it up on your project!

You have to incorporate both requirements of the challenge, the word inspiration AND the creative challenge, on your project to be eligible to win.  Just look at our designers' creations and descriptions as example.  Also, remember that you must include our board image and a link to our blog in your entry post.


Here are the close-ups -

I used modeling paste and a stencil and on several I added a crystal to give it some bling!

I used Stickles to add sparkle to the flowers!

I put some ruffled ribbon so give this photo a softer look!  I rather like it!

On these two I wanted to show the layers.

Thank you for looking and enjoy your day!

Hugs – Ginger
