Sparkling Challenge!

Welcome To another Challenge!

Hey there today is another Challenge over at Scrappy Emt.  Today's challenge is Sparkling (Anything Goes)
She just asks anything made with some BLING, RHINESTONS, BEADS, GLIMMER

So you all know that I am currently living at the Ronald McDonald House in Cincinnati Ohio. The reason is because my two year old little Ethan had upper respiratory failure and  is one year post transplant (liver).
So I have been making families here at the house banners. I decorate and make animal banners and place the children's names in the middle of the character's that I create... I am trying to make my stay here a positive one. There are  so many tears and sad faces here and we are all family here fighting the same battle. That battle is fighting for our children's life. I decorate the doors here so when volunteers come to the house and take tours they see all the cute and fun banners. I get tons of thank yous and all I ask is to pay me in smiles...

So here is my banner that I have just recently finished for a family who's daughter is waiting for a lung transplant!

Her name is Leah! Keep her and her family in your prayer's and be thankful that you don't have to go through what some of these families have gone through!

To make this banner I used the Art Nouvou and Art Philosophy Cartridge. Use stickles,Tim Holtz distressing ink and liquid pearls... Thank you for stopping by.. Hope you have a fun and Crafting Day!
