Cut it Up Challenge #71

Hello & Happy Dance Friday to ya!!!
I can sing it now ----- 
Schoooooollllsss Out for the Summmmer!!!
Yes!!!! We are a Happy family today!!! :)
It'll be nice to get into a routine of sleeping in and
staying up late.... Of course by August... you'll
see me saying how happy I'm gonna be that
we'll be back to some type of schedule... But for now....
I'm totally COOL with School being out & having
my Sweet son Hunter Home!!! :)

Anyway... It's CHALLENGE DAY over at
The Cut it Up Challenge Blog
This is a really great Challenge for you guys too!!!
I know a lot of you LOVE to mess with Glimmer Mist &
Color Shine, & Perfect Pearls Mist, Etc.... Well

This is sooooo the Challenge for YOU!!! I mean Getting
all inky playing with your sprays!!! Who could resist a 
FUN Challenge like that??? :)

So.... The Challenge Theme is ---
You MUST Use a Mist and of course
You MUST use a DIE CUT on your Project!!
So here is what I created....

You can't see the shimmer in the photo.... I tried a billion shots
to try and show it... but not happening... But it does Shimmer
with the Glitter Mists I used... :)

I had a hard time with this at first --- But then I thought...
why not make a Shaker card and create my own background....
So then it just kind of came together with no problem...
Using Glimmer Mist isn't something I would normally do
So, it was really nice to step out of my comfort zone to create this!

Now that you've seen what I've created... 
Get those Mists out and make
something FUN & Share it with us! Don't forget to stop by the
other Design Team Members blogs.... They all made some
Awesome Inspiration to get you creating!!!
