Here is my little project:

The Fancy Pants Glitter Cuts Autumn Frame transparency found in the November Color Me Daisy Kit, Feeling Fall, is perfect for our blog hop! It is beautiful and full of glitter!! However, I decided to use it in a different way.


When putting together my layout, I decided it needed a punch of color. The glitter side of the transparency was pretty, but just didn't give my layout the color it was shouting for. I found that if I turned the transparency around, the backside was a nice bright orange/red color. It was perfect for my layout!

Here is my layout and you can see how the simple act of turning the transparency over gave my layout the punch it needed!
I also did a project with a transparency last month. I don't know if you have ever made cards with transparencies, but they are a blast to make. The dimension you can create by layering your elements on top of the page as well as behind the page is amazing.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope you take on this challenge!! . Check out the Color Me Daisy site and see who else is participating in the blog hop. Then hop on over to see their projects! I can't wait to see what you create!!!

I love the way you used the transparency in the layout. I just got my kit yesterday and love that transparency and I am not a fan of them. I am going to try to do a layout and post it on my blog later today. I love the cards too.
