I DID ONE :-D !!!!!

Me again - busy little me.... LOOK what I made for my Exhibition (actually I did another one - a girly one yesterday, but I took it down there without taking photos !!) I'll show you later.


Now - one of my good friends from SMEARED & SMUDGED FORUM ..... is a very talented lady who goes by the name of HAPPY CRAFTER SHELL, and she showed us the other day how to alter a book and make an ATC/Business Card holder with a fabbo pin cushion on the top. If you click her name it will take you to her and you can see it. She also has a YouTube tutorial as well where she shows you how it's done.


Well - I just had to try it and even though I have a coupla' small c%ck-ups on here, I'm pleased with the result. I used papers from Crafty Chaos and card from my stash. Some feathers, a silk rose and a batty box I made a while back (using Bats from the Little Bit Batty Set from SMEARED INK) which I used on the top.
Many a burn from my hot glue but Viola !!!!!.....................




So, there you are SHELL - I hope you are pleased with me :-D You certainly inspired me and I'm off to mutilate another slushy romance novel and make another one now :-D xxx
