how charming :)

Today I visited my friend Sue who is very busy with her pages for the techniques book we are putting together on "ATC Secret Society for Altered Artists", my pages will be sorted out by Wednesday (just in case Jen is reading this :) )

When I finally got to sit down I finished 6 of the femme charms...well they are actually bag danglers now, I hope the girls in the swap like them, I had fun making them.

I also finished my inchies for my swap and played with another domino and my fave "Zetti" stamp....I am thinking this domino would make a devine broach!

...and I played with some pewter embellishments and fusible film :)

The eggs are stamped onto dominos :)

oh what fun!!!

I did my cream and gold ATCs for Scraptivate's ATC swap....I thought I would use a little lace seeing as I have a draw full of it :)
I also did my ATC for our current "Target Artist" on my Yahoo group (ATC Secret Society for Altered Artists)
I also began to decorated a devine chipboard butterfly with fusible film...I think it needs some beads

I got my very first Krafty Lady mould yesterday...and had a fab time with it, I only had one little packet of Fimo but used that up super quick and when that was gone I got out my hot glue gun and a few glue sticks and used them to fill the mould...I even made some crayons by melting some of the kid's old broken ones into the mould...seriously I am sooooo impressed by the quality of the mould am in the middle of doing a wish list to get more
