Theme Day Thursday - Shoes

Happy Thursday to all my Craft Friends!!
For the next month here are My Cricut Craft Room
we are turning PINK to show our support for
Breast Cancer.  To honor those who are currently
fighting the disease, survivors and to remember
those who have lost the battle.  From now until
October 15th, Erica has asked us to use  
PINK on every project!!  She said that we could
hide it on the back or cover it up, but I am going to
display it proudly, since my mom is a breast
cancer survivor.  She is one of the lucky ones, she
has been cancer free  for more than 7 years. 
Early detection is the key, so please make sure you
get your yearly mammograms!!
So the theme for today was one
of my favorite things  
I decided to use the oh so cute witches
 shoe from Happy Hauntings cut at 3.5".        
I started with a black card base.
The pattern papers is from DCWV all cardstock is
Coordinatons.  I used 2 different Cuttlebug
embossing folders. Sorry but, the one on the 2nd
dark purple layer, I do not know the name of,
but the one on the top light lavendar layer is
Divine Swirls.  I sanded the dark purple layer and
rough up the edges with an edge distresser,  I also
inked both layers lightly with Tim Holtz Distress Ink
in Black Soot.  I added some rhinestone swirls
from Recollections.  I also added some black pearls
from the dollar bin at Joann's as the buttons on the
shoe.  I finished it off with some black and white
twine and some pink glitter tulle. 
The tag and sentiment are from
My Creative Time.
Please go check out the rest of the ladies
on the design team that share my passion for shoes
don't forget to get your mammogram!!!
