Happy Friday,
During the time that I was without a puter I played with my beads here is another necklace for a friends craft table at the weekend... The hot pink beads are from Denise in Dubai...thank Denise xxxx This one is called 'Pink Wink'

Now then Chris and I got together this week and had a great time creating 2''x2'' pieces of art, they are otherwise known as Twinchies, we know alot of you know about them already but what you may not know is that there is a challenge blog out there for both Inchies and twinchies and my pal Chris introduced me to it and am I so glad she did.... why not check it out over HERE

The theme for this week is 'SCHOOL' and this is my take on the challenge using 'Lisa's Altered Art' images.

LAA has a brand new sheet out on sale right now its 'ZANY' go see for yourself over HERE I can't wait to use it.
Chris not only told me about that blog but she also told me about another great challenge blog too and it just happens to be doing twinchies for their 1st few weeks
check it out over HERE.

Today their theme is BIRDS and as I just happen to have a new Crafty Individual bird stamp here is my entry for this week.
I also caught up with the last 2 weeks challenges and had a great time doing them.... the green and pink being my 1st ever twinchie.

And the bottom one well I just couldnt resist using that little girl in the background who is waiting for her wings as she looks just like me at her age...must find you a photo out one day to show you.
Thanks for looking and big smiles to be back.

Have a great weekend x

Hello AND a Big smile from me...
We are glad to be back after being in possession of one very sick laptop thankfully my son Leigh fixed it just over a week ago but I had a lot of catching up to do with the ATC blog over HERE.

I didn't manage to do much in the way of paper crafting as I couldn't take on any of the weekly challenges....
HOWERVER I had a great time playing with my beads and thought that
I would show you a few pieces today.
The necklace below is my very first piece which I made and I am impressed with it even if I say so nothing like being modest

I love the colours.
The pink glass pearls/jet beads is a little bracelet I made for a craft fair coming up soon.

the black and pink pearls are lovely together.
Now for some very EXCITING news..... I have been soooooo so lucky to have been accepted as part of the Lisa's Altered Art creative design team....can you hear me screeeeeaaaaaming with delight.... I have known for a whole month but couldn't let you know due to not being able to get onto my puter.
This little altered chewing packet is boasting one of Lisa's fab images, I know alot of you like her images so I hope that you pop over and check out her site as she has some new ones to share with you. See the link on the right.
I also used some of my fab Cosmo Cricket paper on this little piece of altered art.... hope uuuuu like.

Have to dash now as am expected over at DD to spend time with DGC 1,2+3.
Once again so glad to be back.
