November Guest Design Work for Scraptacular







I had the honor of being the November Guest Designer at Scraptacular. Their November kit is fabulous and features Cosmo Cricket's new Nutmeg line, as well as items from Jillibean Soup, Maya Road, Making Memories, Dream Street and Cocoa Studio. Hurry over to Scraptacular and pick up one of these kits before they are all gone! The floral wreath that I made to surround my candle is modeled after a Christmas wreath created by the very talented Ronda Palazzari.
