Pile It On! Challenge - All about 'P'

The theme of this week's Pile It On! Challenge is:

'All About 'P'!'
We want to see lots of things beginning with 'P' on your projects.

Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp

The prize is a $15 voucher to spend in their fabulous store!

I found this cute penguin called 'Waddle Francis' by Digistamp Boutique in my digi stamps folder...and coloured him using watercolour pencils, adding Stickles to the snow, and around the edge of the circle. I used my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder for the embossing, my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch for the purple border, and added a polka dot bow over the top. To hold the easel inplace, I added a few black adhesive pearls.

You can see the sparkle a little better in this photo:

Here are the challenges I've Piled On!:
