Sequins are popping up everywhere on paper crafting projects and now's your chance to try out this new trend!  With the variety of colors and shapes available, the sky is the limit with the creative possibilities!  Use them to accent the centers of flowers, add them as borders, fill shakers, or create random splashes of sparkle.  We are looking forward to seeing your sequined creations!

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.  

You have until 11:30pm EST tonight (March 25th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a $25 PTI Gift Certificate to spend however they choose.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:

Random-numbers

Susan-Beauchaine
Susan Beauchaine used Rosie Posie to create this bright and colorful card that has me yearning for spring!  I love how she used a small cluster of three sequins to accent the sentiment on her card.

Charlene-B
Charlene B. adapted these iridescent sequins to represent raindrops falling.  A perfect pair was made with one of the umbrellas from Scattered Showers.  I love how she added  the strip of vellum on top of her patterned papers to help give emphasis to the sequin details.

Nancy-Lempinen
Nancy Lempinen made these adorable hair clips using the Clever Barrette Covers dies.  The sequins she stitched in place as the flower centers  is a perfect finishing touch.

Congratulations to all the winners!  Please contact customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate to.  Thank you to everyone who played along this month!  There were so many amazing creations shared!
