An Angel Burning Bright!!

Sorry I have been absent lately, trying to catch up with DT creations and housework (which never seems to end) I still haven't even put up Pics of Logan's birthday that was two weeks ago!! Where does the time go???
Anyway today it's my turn to post on the Digi Bell's Blog - my first official post as a DT member!! It feels like ages since I last posted!! I have wanted to decorate a candle for ages now so I finally got all the supplies I needed and made one. And I love it and have now decided to make more for teachers presents this year!! My mum also asked me to make some place cards up for the christmas table but I think I'm going to decorate candles instead and personalise them with names. 
So I won't keep you in suspense any longer.....

My Candle using Rachel, Little Angel , a gorgeous Elisabeth Bell Image which you can get HERE!!

The tag I made to go with the candle.

The candle all wrapped up with it's tag!!

I already had this candle so I thought I'd try my hand at decorating it with a digi image so I followed the tutorial HERE. As I said,  I used Elisabeth Bell's digi image, Rachel, Little Angel and coloured her in with Tria markers! Once I heated the image onto the candle I then added kindyglitz to her wings!! I also used a glitter pen in her hair and the hearts in her hair!! I then just added rhinestones to the top and bottom of the candle and the ribbon!! I did the exact same for the tag!!! I am so happy with the end result!!! I can't wait to make some xmas one's!!
Well, that's it from me...I'm off to bed but be sure to come back on Friday for the Digi Bell's November Blog Hop!!
