Inspired by {ICE}

A new year and a new design team term…2013, it just flies by so fast!!

This month the Crop Chocolate design team theme was ICE.  When you think of ice a lot of things come to mind like; ice cubes, icicles, snowflakes, and so on.  I originally thought I would do something inspired by icicles but I hit a little speed bump when it came to translating my idea to paper…  so finally I was inspired by a frozen pond for my altered mouse trap magnetic board.
Finished
 Here is what I came up with...
This was a really fun project and if you would like to see how I made this, pop over to The Crop for step by step instructions.

AND...if you leave a comment over there and come back to my blog, become a follower if you aren't already and leave a comment here... I will surprise a randomly picked winner with some blog candy.  All comments must be posted by midnight Sunday January 6th.  Winner will be selected Monday January 7th.  GOOD LUCK and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

  16. Another great project!! You never cease to amaze with your talent & creativity! I hope I can talk myself into giving it a try, but I consider myself as more of a crafter vs. an artist like you! I did read on the crop how you did it & I have most everything you used, so who knows, maybe...
