Clear Scraps stuff for CHA and more GREEN

I have no Simple Joy pictures for this particular post but I have to show you a few of the projects I worked on for CHA (the Craft & Hobby Association's big show going on next week).  I'm really bummed that I can't go to the winter shows (I work at a school) but excited about the prospect of getting to the summer show again this July. are a few of my projects.
One of the new products that Clear Scraps is debuting is  a second type of acrylic - Cast Acrylic - which is harder and clearer than their extruded acrylic.  You can't punch and emboss it like the extruded but it's clarity is stunning. 2 favourite projects this time around have been a combination of the 2 types of acrylic.  Both of these wall hangings have Cast acrylic frames with pre-punched holes and then Large Expressions Words (another new debuted product) made of the extruded acrylic so I was able to punch holes in it (see FAMILY) to hang it from the frame.

 BELIEVE:  Gold metallic StazOn ink both on the word Believe and stamped swirls around the frame, red rickrack and red ribbon from my thrift store, Heidi Swapp flowers and Christmas ornament stickers from Basic Grey.
FAMILY:  Glitter and paint from Viva Decor and Claudine Hellmuth, flowers by Heidi Swapp, buttons and beads from my local thrift store, KI Soup letters and some misc. ribbon and chains.

I'll post some more very soon and stay tuned for more Simple Joys :)

I can't go without showing you this - my weekend project this weekend...painting Cale's room Jade Green.  It's definitely NOT (according to Cale) Saskatchewan Roughriders Green.  It's done, he loves it....good enough for me.
