a little glitter to start your week....


This post is a LONG time coming...
But really...
there is no expiration date when it comes to ALL things glitter!

So let's get on with the SHOW...
so to speak...

This lovely lady that I know..
ALWAYS thinks BIG!
Never small, never medicore..
ALWAYS over the top..
In fact..
I like to think of her as P.T. Barnum..
She is the Ringmaster..
and you never know what amazing thing she has in store for you...

She has the ability to gather the most creative individuals and then
produce the "Greatest Show" on Earth!

She is..
Miss Amy Graver of Elements Design!

I have been lucky enough to work side by side with her on many many projects...
BUT
I think by far her favorite project is...
The Graver Family New Years Card... 
I absolutely love that she puts just as much heart and soul into her personal projects as she does for her Elements clients..

So this Ringmaster wrangled up quite the list of performers for her show..
Jennie Fresa for some glittery beauty...
Anna Sawin for some camera magic..
and
myself for literally creating the "Big Top"...

When it comes to glitter my friends...
how can a girl say no...

It all began with a "secret" Pinterest board...

Then..
the "tent" was raised..
in the Chocolate Creative Design studio...

Miss Jennie Fresa worked her glittery magic...

The champagne began to flow..

Step Stool: Home Depot   Sequin Fabric: Joann
Bracelet: Express   Ring: Target

Tinsel and glitter filled the air!
Sequin Top: Target   Skirt: Childrens Place

The music began to play...

and
Voila!!

Miss Anna Sawin captured the magic...

While the Ringmaster herself...

designed THE most fabulous AND of course BIGGEST (8.5 x 11) New Years Card to date...
Let's not forget that it came complete with it's own confetti!

So thanks yet again to that AMAZING Ringmaster, Miss Amy Graver...
for allowing us all to be a part of your MOST creative, MOST fun and MOST glittery traveling circus!

Huge thanks to Allison Keck of Arrow Party Rental for the FABULOUS champagne coupes!
