Good Morning Everyone,

We are having our first BLOG HOP
of 2013 today!

If you came from
CATHY LEE'S blog you are in the right order.
If you just stumbled here you will
want to start at the beginning which is

Our challenge is:

This was a real hard one for me,
as I can't get to stores to buy anything to make!

I had one large candle at my house,
so I decided that had to be it :o)

The candle is 6" in diameter.
Therefore 12" around.
It is white.

So I gathered paper and my image,
# 3001
She can be found HERE in DIANA'S STORE. I also
used : sentiment - BEST EASTERWISHES #754 same place.

I have used only card stock no design paper.
The paper is all from Stamping Up
Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink,
and Bashful Blue.

I cut a a 3" strip of yellow paper
and added a wonderful boarder from
Magnolia Doohickey.
I placed large pearsl from my stash on the top
and bottom of the boarder at certain places.

Tilda is the focal point of the decoration.
but I added hand made flowers
to her left and right.

I added large pearls to the centre of each
large flower and a tiny rhinestone in
each tiny flower.

This is the right side of the candle:

Here is the left side:

And a close up so you can see the pearls and rhinestones

Here is a close up of Tilda:

If you decide to decorate
a candle this way, make sure
that you take OFF the decoration
while burning the candle!!!!!

I have made mine tight enough to stay on the candle
and lose enough to be able to pull it off.

* I have learned that I should have
taken a picture of the whole thing
while it was laying down before
adding it to my candle *
My apologies.


I hope you are having fun with the BLOG HOP.
If you are following in order 
you should go to  JANIEL  next.

See you soon,
Love, Candy
