Mardi Gras Blog Hop

Welcome to the “Mardi Gras" Blog Hop!  


It's Carnival Time in the Big Easy a/k/a New Orleans and we are celebrating with our own Parade! A parade of paper crafts! We're so happy you could join us today!  

If you came from An' Jenic then you are in the right place. If not please start at Miranda's Blog http://www.nanasscrapspot.com/ , we don't want you to miss any of the fun!

In addition to seeing a lot of awesome creations, there is some blog candy available too.  Miranda will be giving away a Michael’s gift card.  To be eligible for the blog candy, you are required to visit each stop in the hop and leave a comment!  The winner will be announced on Friday on Miranda's blog http://www.nanasscrapspot.com/.


My project is this layout:




Technically, this was New Year's Eve at our house.  However, the beads and party food are a way of celebrating Mardi Gras.  I tried to make the Stickles look like beads in between the small photos and along the blue mirror paper stripe border.

I used Paper Studio papers, red Sprinkle Thickers, Candy Cane, Diamond and Lime Green Stickles.




Next on the hop is Amanda.
