Frosty The Snowman....

Hello my dearest crafting friends,
Wow, I have just been feeling like I've been missing in action lately.  I really haven't been, but I've definitely been a busy little bee.... 

Today I have something to share with you, that I have also shared over on The Digi Bells Blog.
My fellow teamie Janiel and I have decided that we would each use the same digital image from our darling Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection, and we would share a post both showing what we've created with it.  We decided on using "Frosty The Snowman"....  Ohhhh how I love this digi. 

I hope you enjoy seeing what I did with it. 




So the story begins like this.....  LOL

Last weekend I was in North Carolina, and while I was there, I just so happened to visit a craft store.  Wouldn't you know, I saw these cute unfinished trays and thought, OHHHH MY, I have some ideas for those....  I decided that it would be the perfect tray to decorate with "Frosty The Snowman".  Anyone with this tray could either use it for display purposes, or they could actually use it to serve hot cocoa, tea, or coffee.  I made sure not to have things that bump up on the actual surface of the tray. 

However, I have torn papers, and an adorable colored and carefully cute out digital image, along with the text that I cut using a set of sizzix dies.  Once I had the layout set up, I decided on my paint color, and set out to paint the tray, once dried,  I carefully glued things down with some quick dry adhesive. 

I coated everything with a very thin coat of Modge Podge, to help protect everything and create a stronger hold for what I had glued down.  The next thing I did was apply the purple ribbon, and dangling pearls to the outsides of the tray.  Once that was finished, I added a couple of snowflakes, and then  sprayed craft shellac over the top, to put a finishing seal over everything. 

And there you have it....  All the details you could ask for.  ha ha....

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you'll take some time to stop over at Janiel's blog and she her "Frosty" card.  So beautifully embellished.  Absolutely a fabulous card to see, you won't want to miss it.

I have decided to enter this into these challenges.
