Success!

I am so very proud to announce that I have been successful in finishing that troublesome file I've been working on! Woo Hoo!

Here's a picture of what I was trying to get to work:

I must have test cut it a dozen times. The tree-like shapes on each "spoke" of the snowflake were just giving me fits no matter what I tried unless I cut it at a huge size. How many HUGE snowflakes have you ever seen? LOL! Anyway, here's what the final version looks like:
And here's another option for it with peek-a-boo openings:



And yet another option:

I'm finally proud of the file and it'll be on it's way to the store soon. There are a few lucky people who have received it for free. How did they do that? Well, they participated in the KNK Winter Swap over at http://www.paperthreads.com/. If you have the software to create a KNK file, you really should try out a swap or two. You get to learn your software, have fun making something you know you will use, and you'll get free files in return. I promise; it will be well worth it!

Until next time, Happy Creative Time!
