My Paper Crafting Snowflake Challenge

Time for the first challenge of 2013 here at My Paper Crafting and  my first post for the new year.  For our first project  we were going to make snowflakes for Sandy Hook Elementary School.  However the request for snowflakes for the children when they return to school  has been so overwhelming and they have requested  that no more snowflakes be sent.  Isn't that awesome!  How wonderful to have to tell people stop we are overwhelmed when people are doing something nice for people.  

I made my three snowflakes from Winter Lace cut at 5 inches.  I also cut the shadow so they would stand out more.  Then I added a Tim Holtz rosette to the center  made with blue and white paper to make them pop.    On top I cut out the words Peace from Gypsy Wanderings and love and faith from Home Accents our of glitter paper.  I added Stickles to the words and gems to bling them out.  

If you look carefully at the snowflake on the top left you will notice the design of the snowflake has peace signs in it.  

I am going to hang my snowflakes in my craft room to remind me to pray for the Sandy Hook families.
