I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Merry & Bright

For my card today, I was inspired by The Alley Way Stamps Challenge blog: BE Inspired. The challenge this time is a a collection of photos. I found my inspiration from the first photo with leaves hanging from all levels. The leaves metallic and full of glitter. Instead of using glitter on my leaves, I decided to use red glittered poinsettias with green leaves and sentiment from the All Wrapped Up set. 

To balance the card, I placed a metal photo corner on the upper left corner. 

Challenges Entered
Be Inspired: Photo Inspiration
Creative Moments: Make it Sparkle
