Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge ~ Picture Perfect!! =)

I'm stopping in to share the New Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge for this week!! I LOVE this Picture Perfect Inspiration Photo and there are SO MANY ways you can be inspired by it!! My oldest son Beckett and my Niece Aubrey are having their First Communion today so I KNEW I wanted to create some Gifts for them and I thought it would be FUN to use this photo for my jumping off place!! I decided to make some Gift Bags and a couple Gift Card Holders!! I used the Paper Smooches Spiritual Sampler Stamp Set, Mini Monograms Stamp Set, Chains Dies, Deco Bags Die, Crosses Dies, Scalloped Circle Dies, Stitched Frames Dies, Fringe Die, Flag Tags Dies and the Hearts Dies!! I used the Chains Large Die to create the FUN Folded Over Treat Bag Toppers!! I Die Cut it Twice so I could have the Frame be a Bright Color!! I then used my Score Board and scored them in order to create the Treat Bag Topper!! I then took the Crosses Dies and layered them to create the most AMAZING 3-D Crosses!! I added one of the Mini Hearts Die Cuts and then a Colored Sequin to that and I LOVE how it kinda resembles Jesus on the Cross!! Then to create the FUN Felt Balls I used the Scalloped Circle Dies in the Smallest Size and Cut 5 Pieces for the Blue and 6 Pieces for the Pink one!! I folded them in half and then in half again and glued them ontop of one of the Scalloped Circles for the base!! Once they are all glued and secure you can fluff them up!! For the last one on the Pink one I folded it the same, but I rolled it and put it in the center of the bunch and I LOVE the look!! I used the Mini Monogram Stamp Set to add their Names to the back of the Treat Bag Toppers and I really think this is a SPECIAL Little touch that means ALOT to the Recipient!! Such a FUN Collection don't you think!!??  =)
I just KNOW they are going to LOVE these and I LOVE being able to use my AWESOME Paper Smooches Stash for my Gifts!! I hope you'll stop by to see what the rest of the AMAZING DT has created for this weeks challenge!!

I hope you'll play along!! You have until April 18th at 11:59 PST to link up your Projects for a chance to win a Gift Certificate for the Paper Smooches Store!! I CAN'T WAIT to see what you create!!
THANKS for stopping by and I hope you have a Fabulous Weekend!!
