Here is my project.  I made a layout for my niece.  I am going to frame it for an Xmas gift. I found these wonderful cow stickers at Tuesday Morning recently and found them to be most useful for this hop.

I layered the large sticker which was really two pieces on a metallic paper die cut stitched mat then layered that on a kraft doily.

I layered the old Creative Memories stickers on white card stock then fussy cut and popped up with dots.

I added the smaller cow stickers on circular stitched die cuts out of the same metallic card stock.  I found the paisley printed adhesive backed fabric in my stash...I have had it for so long and this project was perfect for it!
