Gecko Galz Tricks and Treats Blog Hop

Last week was the Gecko Galz blog hop. It was a lot of fun and these are the samples that I made for the hop.

I really enjoyed using the beautiful ladies from my collage sheet! I cut out the lady on this card and added bits and bobs that I had, such as the blue velvet trim, leaf and paper crown with added rhinestones.


I love using images from Gecko Galz to make ATC's! For this ATC, I cut out the lady, used Words and Music ATC paper (Gecko Galz) for the background, added pink German scrap wings, metal stars and German scrap border.


I like how the image of the lady with the umbrella goes with the theme of my scrapbook page about my daughter's rain boots. The black background paper is from September's Gothica papers (by Gecko Galz).


I added some snowflake paper, red ribbon and trim to this pretty lady to make a Christmas card. The words "Joyeux Noel" are printed on the image.


I bought this box with a herringbone pattern already painted on it. I decorated it by adding a doily, some Prima pearls, a feather, clock charm, button and a lovely Gecko Galz lady image to the lid and now have a pretty place to keep special treasures.
