This was fun! Anybody who says small is easier...hasn't tried it!!!! Graphic 45 paper background, Collections pieces, a transparency from PaperWhimsy, a rub on from American Crafts, and of course the Ranger products from Tim Holtz's terrific Idea-ology line!!!!

My daughter came for a 3 day visit! We had a pet crisis with an aging dog (daughter's) and a late night trip to take her home....her husband, was working overtime on his job, telephone man. We all worked in the telco field, so I know how that is.
Emma turned 4!!! Going on at least 16. And Erin won the grand prize at her school for highest magazine sales! Got to "roll in the dough" and ride in a HUMMER limo!!
Soooooo, now that things have settled down. I have been playing.
Here is a Maya Road tag, wings and blossom flower with a Paper Whimsy vintage photo and Ten Seconds Studio metal for a background. A piece of Grungeboard and an Idea-ology piece adorn the top. I used Perfect Pearls on the wings. Paint Dabbers added color on the hinge and a touch on the edges of the wings. The paper is from Graphic 45....I love that stuff!
I posted this and decided it needed something...I added dots to define the wings and make the colors pop in other areas...much better!
Be good to each other!

This is how she described the process of the creation to me:

We live to tell about it!!!! HA!
Forty-seven students in 2 classes. And to me, they were all worth their weight in gold! I loved them all, but my new personal hero...or heroine... is Delores. She has more tenacity in her hands and heart than I can only EVER hope to have. She made me really see things in a whole new light, and for that I will always think of her when I feel I can't do something. I gave her the "smarter than the teacher award" after she kindly brought to my attention that I wanted her to do something backwards. Yeah, I was trying to help her!
But they all take care of each other, and help one another, so that everyone can have a great time. AND WE DID!!!! We gave away all kinds of door prizes and 2 grand prizes were drawn from the many who signed up for ALL 4 CLASSES!
These are a couple pictures of Wendy teaching. She took pics of completed books.....by Sunday at 5 we were so wiped out, I didn't get pictures of the books from my class. But most proudly wore their necklaces from the Saturday class and they were ALL fabulous!!! They outdid themselves with creativity, and that's what it's all about. Thinking "out of the limits" of the instructions, and just going your own way.
They were the Best!
Thanks so much,

Do you think we should have this as a door prize for one of the classes this weekend at For Keeps Sakes???? These Hero Arts flower jewels were just the right color and size to add to this slider tin necklace. There are only a couple of spots left in the jewelry class.....and this is a technique you will be learning!!!!!
Can't wait to see you there!!!
