Ok, now onto the layout I created using the Pink by Design {Rock On} stamp set.  If you haven't tried these photopolymer stamps yet....take it from me a 'red rubber' snob....they are amazing!

If you are anything like me when I see a sentiment stamp...I think card.  Sarah did such a great job on choosing sayings for her stamps...that I had a hard time choosing...there were so many options.

Here is a link to the Pink By Design Store: .  Sarah also just announced that Oh My Crafts! will be selling her stamps.  Yay!!  :)

Enough chattering and enabling from me, here is my layout....

Products used: Pink by Design Rock on Stamp set, Bazzill cardstock, Rock Princess Cricut cartridge, Glimmer Mist (pearl), black glittler paper (target), bling, Crystal effects, Tim Holtz tiny attacher.

See the yummy glimmer mist.  Gotta love some sparkle!!  These little embellishments were made by stamping 3 images from the Rock on set and coating them with crystal effects.  The circle punch is from Stampin' Up.
One of the many fantabulous sentiments in the Rock On stamp set.  Because the stamps are photopolymer I was able to curve them on my block before the sentiment a wavy look.  Then I added a music note at the end.  Attached it to the Layout with the tiny attcher and dimensionals (from SU! far the best dimensionals on the market!)
Here is a close up of the title.  I cut the crown and bow from the black glitter paper and blinged it up a little :)   The zebra paper in the background from (Hobby Lobby) was crinkled and inked up with SU! lavendar lace ink. 

If you have any questions please let me know.  I will be away from my computer for the next couple of days while I recover from surgery, but I promise to answer your e-mails as soon as I can.
