Here's a layout I created as a Design Team sample project for the new GLITTER CHALLENGE going on now on the Cuddly Cute Designs Facebook fan page. I used the Cuddly Critter Fish for this layout and I just LOVE how sparkly and colorful my fish turned out!

Although I have tons of glitter papers, I decided to REALLY get my *S*P*A*R*K*L*E* on and made my own using colored cardstock, adhesive paper (since I don't own a Xyron), and some of the beautiful glitter colors I have. Aren't they fun looking? I hardly ever think to use glitter anymore, especially with so many beautiful glitter papers on the market, but it was really fun, challenging and different! After adhering the glitter to my cut pieces, I covered them with the protective papers off the adhesive sheet and used a rub-on tool to burnish and really set the glitter. This worked perfectly so that the glitter stays exactly where it should. Here are my glittery fish:
To add a little definition to my glittered fish, I used Copic pens to very lightly outline the pieces. This was much easier than trying to ink or chalk my usual way and I was very happy with the end result.
My title was made using some really bubbly and sparkly looking alphabet stickers by Thickers. These were just the thing for this layout!
Although I was having fun playing with glitter, I did draw the line as far as my photo mats go and used my store-bought glitter papers LOL!
