WELCOME!  Those of you that have hopped on over here from Alicia's blog -- I'm glad you are here!  If you are just checkin' in with me and are surprised by the blog hop, be sure to visit all the blogs on the list above for some amazing summer time scrappin' inspiration! 
The Best Creation glitter paper is fabulous and today, I am going to show you a fun layout created solely with Glitter Paper and no patterned paper!  Remember, the polka dots are a staple at Best Creation and come in every imaginable color!


Now the glitter paper can be challenging to adhere, but let me give you a few tricks! 

Stitch it down!
Staple it down!
Use Helmar Adhesives!  Yes, that is right!  Helmar makes some amazing adhesives that make working with the Best Creation's Glitter Paper a breeze!  I love the Scrap Dots - the dimensional adhesive that serves double duty - not only does it add pop to my embellishments, but it adheres too!  Another one that works is the Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive! 



Guess what else?  See that cute little beach ball?  That is a sneak peek for you of a brand new line from Best Creation that will be released in June!  Keep your eyes open on the Best Creation Blog for a chance to win that!  The easiest way to do that is to become a follower of the blog so you don't miss out!
