Zip- a- dee- doo -dah!

Happy first day of Spring. Though where I live we're not quite feeling it yet. My kids went to school this morning zipped up tight.
Speaking of zippers...;) The gals on Practical Scrappers and I showcased 10 ways to use zippers on cards and layouts. I found a huge stack of zippers at my local thrift store for cheap so I was thrilled to put them to good use.

I created this faux ripped/zipper look across my page using Glitz Designs and Helmar's Acid Free glue and Helmar's 450 Quick Dry . The 450 Quick Dry was essential to adhering the zipper on with complete ease.

Another way to use zippers is to use them in place of tree stumps or anything else tall like below.
