X is for X-ray

Almost there with my A-Z journal, my X page wanted to pay homage to the X-ray and the challenge was to use some form of x-ray . So here is my Dr Bones touting for business with his able assistant crow, he'll pick you bones nice and clean !!

Altered Spoon

This is the first time I have ever altered a spoon but Altered Design was running a swap and I thought I would have a go, so here it is. I wanted a "Alice in Wonderland" feel to it. I covered the bowl with stamped tissue paper, made the "eat me" and "dink me " tags , painted a wooded bead to look like a chocolate and painted the inside of a little bottle and added micro beads then attached them to the tea stained lace. Hope they like it.

40th Birthday card

For Sues card it had to be cats as she is a HUGE cat lover, I had just the right rub-ons that made a cute gate fold card for her.

Charm bracelet

It was my friends 40th Birthday the other day and I wanted to make her something special for her gift. I found a kit for this charm bracelet, I had to make all the little charms then hang them on the chain bracelet, I found I really enjoyed it once I got the knack. Then I made a little box with my box maker board and to finish off the little organza bag I had for it to go in I made the microscope slide tag. Hope you liked it Sue and had a great birthday and trip to New York ! Lucky girl !!

Chocolate box

Some weeks ago I made this for my sister. She thinks she eats too much chocolate and wanted to keep the children's advent calenders I made to ration it out each night. Of course any excuse to make something, so when I saw a kit to make the blank box draws I bought it, made up the draws and covered it with paper and images from the Joanna Sheen Fashion Boutique CDrom. I had also seen in one of the card magazines how to make felt chocolates, they were perfect to go on the top as just enough temptation! They look so realistic that everyone who sees them has to stop themselves from taking one !! I filled each numbered draws with a mini chocolate bar and when I gave it to her last week she loved it !
