It's a party in here!

I love confetti!  It is so fun and festive.  And messy.  And a pain to clean up.  And you always miss some and are finding it weeks later in the strangest places...I hate confetti.

Depsite that.  I decided to give the confetti challenge a go.

I LOVE all of the desingers for Paper Trey Ink and check out their blog regularly.  (If you haven't checked any of them out, you really should...very inspiring!)

I noticed that Heather has a great tuturial for shaker cards on her blog: Pine is Here and decided to make one.  Mine did not come out nearly as cute as hers, but it is not too bad.

Here is her video, but PLEASE head over to her site.  Really.  You will not be sorry.  I LOVE her projects!

And here is my very loose intrepretation.  (Seriously, I feel the need to buy every one of the products in her video...oh, that my budget would let me...)

Have you tried shaker cards lately?  Did you find them hard or easy?

My scrappy friend Queen Pam joined me in the challenge and I LOVE her card!  I never would have thought of this!

Way to Rock the Challenge, Pam!

I never thought of shaker cards! So much better than gluing! Love your card and Pam's idea is inspired :)

I think your shaker card is great and I really love the glitter fish stones from Pam. Two good ideas in one post.

I just made my first shaker card a couple of months ago as a make 'n' take at a crop, and they made it very easy! I love what you've done, and the fish bowl is fantastic!!!
