A New DT!

Hi Everyone,
I am very very excited to be writing this blog post as it is my first one as part of the CORE4 Kraft Krew for Kenny K! I was so excited when I heard Kenny K were having a DT call and when I got the email asking me to be one of the CORE4 VIP guest designers I was over the moon!
I will be holding this position for the next 6 months and have many exciting challenges coming up before June. I couldn't wait to get started so as soon as the challenge list was up - I found out the first theme was Anything goes with the twist -  SPARKLE
  out came the glitter and here is what I came up with.
I used Craft Star digi from Kenny K Downloads to make this plaque for my craft room. I used a purple marker pen to colour the edges of the plaque then covered it in glossy accents and added some shimmer glitter in purple (this was also added to the carpet, the craft desk, even the dog had a sparkly hint of purple to his fur!) 
The image is coloured mainly with copics and promarkers were used for the skin.
I used my Cameo to cut out the lettering and added some little metal flowers with a purple candi in the centre. The bow was made using double sided satin ribbon and a diamante effect slider I had in my stash. The Pearl swirls are from That Craft Place.
I saw this saying on a poster on Pinterest and thought it was great. I typed it out using different fonts and printed in a very light colour. I used my quickie glue pen to go over the writing and added more shimmer glitter (and added a bit more to the carpet and the dog!)
The metal corners are from my stash I got from Dusk till Dawn Crafts
Now all I need is a craft room! I have totally overtaken the dining room and so this is now going on the dining room wall until one of the kids moves out and I can have a spare bedroom for a craft room! (They are only 10 and 12 so I will be waiting a longggggggggg time!)
I hope you have enjoyed my first posting as part of the Kenny K Krafty Krew. Head back to the Kenny K challenge blog to check out what the rest of the Krew have come up with to sparkle you with and to add your own entry. The winner will receive 3 Kenny K images (5 images if you add the Sparkle twist)
I would like to enter the following challenges:
