Stuck On Us Sketches

I was image surfing on Google, look at project life tags and found this great new site. Stuckonusketches they do sketches and project life challenges. Their current Project life Challenge is add embossing any type. The challenge runs from January 27- February 9  The actually challenge can be found here Stuck on Us Sketches
Here is my embossing challenge:

The snow brads were just pain gray, so I painted them white and then embossed them with a white glittery mix. I did not complete emboss them. I want them to have that fuzzy look so I only melted the embossing powder enough to stick.
I also in embossed the plain white tag and ink only the dry embossed elements. I really like how both turn out.

Project 52 ----1st layout..kinda

               Project 52- I have decided to make a project 52 book this year. I want this book to be  about my life and things I do weekly. I  have set a few goals for this book. Frist,  I want to use only items out of my stash to complete this book, with the exception of alphabets. (I am not sure I have enough to do a whole year.)
              My second goal is to keep up with this project weekly. With that being said, I don't think I will be able to get the photos printed this week. It is currently below zero here in Ohio and is going to remain that way for a few days .I currently only have Monday mornings an Tuesday off from work and I do not want to take my son out in this cold weather for pictures.  So, I guess I have to modify my goal to having a page designed done every week. Which I have done. I will post picture of my project 52 as soon as I have the photo's printed.   I can however post a few pic of the tags I have made for two page spread.
