joy....

Last year I created this little rustic ornament of my two favorite girls. It was published in last year's issue of Cricut Magazine.  This was one of the photos Katie Driscoll took for Changing the Face of Beauty. I love how it captured the mutual adoration they have for each other. 
I used my Cricut and the Joys of the Season Cartridge to cut the pine cones.
Each "section" of the pine cone was cut separately, dipped in texture paste, and then sprinkled with glitter.  
I put them back together once it was dry.  I added a bit of texture paste and glitter to the swirls too!
Since the ornament is glass, I cut the word joy out of vinyl.  Then you can stick it on there, no glue needed.   I added a couple of pearls in a turquoise blue for a pop of color. 
Cort and I are going for haircuts and highlighting tonight. 
Unfortunately it is only supposed to make it to the single digits....which makes going out a bit painful. 
The things we do for beauty! ;)
Have a great day! Stay warm!
