Altered Mini Matchbox

Hello everyone, I have another project share.  For the month of September I was in the mini matchbox swap over at MSR (myscraproom.ning) and we were altering the mini matchboxes.  This was my creation for the swap.  I used the Tea Time collection to cover the mini boxes and embellished wtih lace, tiny butterflies and flowers by Recollections, and inside I included some altered buttons.  I think they turned out pretty darn cute.  TFSB.

Fall/Thanksgiving Bead Box

Hello everyone, I created another bead box, but this time the theme is  Fall or Thanksgiving.  I used the burlap and trims from my stash.  The wooden piece and flower pics were all purchased from Michaels.  These bead boxes would make great gifts for the upcoming Christmas holiday.  You can fill them with beads and pins to make stickpins.  Add charm, chain and jump rings for making dangles for your projects.  Once you get started they come together quickly.  Give it a try and be sure to let me know.  TFSB!

MSR Challenge #65 and 66

Hello everyone,  I participated in the weekly challenge over at, this is a weekly challenge with prizes.  For the 65th challenge we had to alter a canvas which had to have a pocket late, flowers, ribbon, something metal, a banner and stamped wording.

 And for Challenge 66 we had to alter a paintbrush, it had to be painted, add the word Halloween, add a cat, or bat or witch, some lace and flower, a twig and some type of metal other than the metal on the paintbrush.   I was lucky for Challenge 66 and won that prize package of stamps.  TFSB
