Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop - Bring on the Bling!

GV Blog Header
Hello and welcome to our Mediterranean Achievers Blog Hop for December. This blog hop is to celebrate those who have earned the Mediterranean Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation this year and to showcase our creations with you and share our love of Stampin' Up!.
This month our theme is "Bring on the Bling". We are sure that you will find some incredible inspiration from the projects that you are about to see. 
Years ago I learned how to make a clock like this from a fellow demo, Sandy MacIver. Recently when I was cleaning my stamp room, I unearthed some leftover clock kits and decided to put them to good use. The first one below is all about the Bling!  Pretty and sparkly with Gold and Silver Emboss Powder and the Iced Rhinestones that are back in the Occasions Catalog!  Also the Snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes Stamp set and Snow Flurry Punch are making a comeback in the new catalog too. Unfortunately, the "SNOW" framelit from the Seasonal Frame Thinlits collection is RETIRING really soon so get it now while it's still available and on SALE during the Year End Clearance. NEW items were just added to this sale as well. Plus I've used shiny silver metallic paper and glitter too!  I'm thinking the "BLING" is covered here. 
I made this as a Secret Santa gift for one of the gals at work and it was a big hit! I hope you like it too. If so, please leave me a comment!

And of course I couldn't stop there as I had more kits left so I put together a project/gift for my Whirlwind Stampers Holiday party and my team got to make this one at the party. I love it when I get to teach them something they haven't made before so I scored big that night. Woohoo!

Did you notice my mistake?  Ya, the music score is upside down!  So funny that I didn't notice this until now and I've already gifted it at my Cookie Exchange party last weekend. Maybe she won't notice or she got a good laugh on me - it's still cute and could be a conversation starter, right?  Okay, now I'm trying to make myself feel better!
