Steeler Bling!

Happy Monday to you!  Sandra here to share my designer's choice project for today.

Thinking of Hines and Kym preparing for the Dancing with the Stars finale I was inspired to do a Steelers layout.  Thanks to my fantastic sister I had the wonderful opportunity to attend my very first Pittsburgh Steelers game last fall!  As a lifelong Steelers fan this was a dream come true for me!!!

My sister and I started our day "tailgating" at a Champagne brunch at the Rivers Casino - can you say mimosa?  I did! :o)  We then tried our luck at the slots for a little while before we walked from the casino to Heinz Field.  Along the way to the stadium we were snapping pictures (we are scrapbookers you know) and during one of the handoffs we fumbled the camera and it hit the sidewalk. Well, that was the end of that camera so all of the photos from inside the stadium were taken with our cell phones.  Even though my beloved Steelers lost by three the experience was fabulous!

You know that I love, love, love all of the great bling products that Creative Charms has to offer so it goes without saying that I had to bling up my layout using Creative Charms Vintage Jewels in Steeler logo colors and some Gradient Gem Stickers.

I created a pocket in the lower left side of the page for my ticket and blinged it with three Vintage Jewels.
I used the Amber Gradient Gem Stickers (the medium and small) to create the bling football and added three more Vintage Jewels for the logo.

I may change out the Amber Vintage Jewels in the logos for a Vintage Jewels - CLEAR colored with a yellow Copic Marker.  I always keep clear gems on hand just in case I need to color them with Copics to get the exact shade that I want for my project.
