Pup Pictures

It's brag time for daughter Amy is a professional photographer.  I love the photos she takes at weddings, her food photos for restaurants, her baby photography but I think what I love most is her pet photography.

Having recently lost my boy Baxter, I know how much I cherish my photos.  The above photos are of her little Boxer friend, Olivia.  I think she is ready for Santa.  Amy lives in the Chicago area (just sayin!)and she's taking bookings for Christmas pet photography.  I have friends living in the area and I wanted to make sure they knew Amy would love to come to your home (ask about travel) to get beautiful photos of your fur baby.  For a special offer be sure to mention that Glitter Grammy sent you....or just say....your mom sent me.  

If you want more information?

Want to see more of her art?   You can see more here.

Ok, I'm done bragging.....and now it's on to baking for a cookie exchange.  

Hugs from me to you,

A Sparkly Noel

Well this is it.....It's December already and this will be my last Christmas creation for 2015.  I'm going to tell you I am cheating a bit.  Last year I designed a card for a Gift Workshop at Paradise Scrapbook Boutique.  I loved the fact that I could use left over glitter paper to  cut the letters.  So, this year I saved any piece big enough to use for one of the letters.  I also used scrap to make the solid portion of the ornament.  Well, what's left?  Yup, the silver glitter portion is also a scrap.  And at night while watching TV, I put the pieces together.....good idea?  I thought so.

As luck would have it.  The Sparkles December Challenge just happens to be Die Cuts.  Which is my very favorite.  I love dies and I use them as often as I can.  I'm not an artist, so using dies makes my life easier and often times much faster.  So, now that my card is about sharing how you create with dies.

Santa isn't the only one to gift.  Sparkles has two sponsors this month:


So, How about heading over to  Sparkles Christmas Challenge and enter your project using dies.  Who knows, you just might be a lucky winner!  

Until next time, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Season's Greetings and Happy New Year!  I hope wherever you are you are safe, healthy and surrounded by those who love you.  

Hugs from my world to yours,
