I decided to scrap some photos of my trip to Italy last year.  These are two of my favorites from Rome...my first siting of the famous Trevi Fountain and my first vino and pizza in ROME!...seriously, it doesn't get any better this!  Doesn't the Marquis Silver Rhinestone Design - Self Adhesive bling that I colored with a light blue sharpie look just like a fountain on the crystal clear 12 x 12 Decorative Sheet Style E - acrylic?

I was able to bling up my handmade paper flowers (using vintage sheet music and gorgeous papers from Graphic45) and my Want2ScrapTM Chipboard Embellishments - Pack of 5 - Style D using 72 Count - Black Rhinestones - Self Adhesive and 72 Count - Baby Blue Rhinestones - Self Adhesive.

I love layering up delicious trims and punched paper edges, don't you?


And the star of our Want2ScrapTM Blog Hop show......NestablingTM!  Here I used one of the frames from NestablingTM  Fancy Tags Two Black Rhinestones to highlight my page title that I printed with my computer and then die cut with Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two die.  I love the custom look that NestablingTM gives my die cut shapes!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog on Want2Scrap's first ever blog hop.  Good luck and I'm crossing my fingers for you!

HELP ME! I'm LOST in Rome! Ahhhhhhhhh!

Oh, no, wait. It's just the sheer BRILLIANCE of your magical L/O and how it has transported me alla Roma! {I might need a little vino, after THIS!} Wow, girl! Could you have blinged out your ride, any BLINGIER? The ANSWER: NOPE! OUTSTANDING, lil' Dane. THIS, my friend, should become a national holiday in Italy. The day DANA blinged out Rome. Stunning.
