Feliz Ano Nuevo!


So I finally got done with my new year project! It's been a busy Holiday and I just now finished the mini! LOL! Aye, I'm such a procrastinator! For my project I decided to go with one of a Mexican New Years tradition...12 grapes 12 wishes.  What you are supposed to do eat 12 grapes and for each grape you make a wish.  It was a VERY fun project to work on and a very simple one that anyone can do; it doesn't have to be a grape shape but convert it into a traditional book.  I had a bigger plan but I'll be reserving that one for next year! here is the mini. Oh, and excuse the empty journaling spots...kinda want to keep those wishes to myself. jeejeejee...I hope everyone had an amazing Ano Nuevo/New Years!

What did I use?

DCWV: Mi Casa paper stack (My leftoever from Linda's mini)
Tim Holtz D-ring (from a RAK)
Chipboard numbers (BigLots a long time ago)
Embroidery floss (my mom's stash)
Home-made flowers and ribbon (from my own stash)
Florish and stamped journal spots (from the Expo last year)
Stampendous:PEARLuster Jade embossing powder (Michaels)
Recycled chipboard for my grape shaped mini (My husband saved that chipboard from being thrown in the dumpter!)

Well, if you guys have any questions please ask away! Me no mind at all! LOL!
