A Blinged Up Shoe

The TOFF#80 challenge this week is "Bling It On." How fun is that? They even let me be a guest designer which is even more fun!!! This is my creation:

I used one of the flowers in the Whimsical Lupin image sheets (the sheet is such a deal because it comes with several different kinds of flowers and leaves, but it is priced like one image). I added some Zva Crystals from CYDI? and lots of Stickles (I added some to every dot on this SU! dp). Then I filled the shoe with Snickers Snacks - that counts as bling too, right? It does in my book because I can't eat them (on a diet you know - and Benzi just because I use them on my card or talk about them doesn't mean I am cheating on my diet- LOL) and they are beautiful!

I used the shoe template available from Ellen Hudson to make the shoe. When I went back to the store to get the link, I found a witches shoe that I think I am going to get this weekend - you need to check it out here. I love to make 3-D projects!!!

I totally love Octopode images - some are whimiscal and sweet, some are from my old favorite childhood stories, some are from some of my favorite horror and fantasty stories, and some are steampunk or just totally.... interesting. Her collection is super extensive with snowmen, elves, puppies, pretty flowers, werewolves, zombies, Audrey Hepburn, Johnny Depp, Ziggy Stardust, Alice in Wonderland, cupcake flowers, snails, houses, trees - pretty much everything. For my next purchase I am trying to decide between Audrey Hepburn and the Lybrinth King...

Hugz to all - remember you can never have enough shoes or friends!!!


  1. If you start dreaming about eating those snickers bars you know your headed for a diet How many WW points is a snickers bar? Houi-I am dieting too! I need to fit into my summer cruise wear-those steriods I took when I was sick did me in. And didn't I read you have already lost 8lbs??? That is awesome.

    Love your shoe-now are these easy to make? This would be a wonderful favor for Crystal's Bridal shower! I can see this all done in white with white flowers and bling-ummmm yummy! This is fabulous.

    Bear Hugs,
