Just having one of those days

Morning Everyone,

Well I received my order from Scrap Matrix the other day thanks Rae for the all the little extras that was so sweet of you just love those tiny little birds you put in my order there so cute.... So now their is no more excuses need to get cracking on making my 25 matchboxes for the Swap with all Seasons countdown to Christmas swap,
...Now when I placed my order at scrap matrix I brought this fabulous frame art mould which I was going to use to make all my lift ornaments to go inside each box but when I got it I realized its too big to fit inside any of the matchboxes that I was going to use so had to think again, so have come up with another idea of altering tiny little frames and making them into a christmas ornament for their tree.
So the first image is of the cute little frame this is actually going to be added to a challenge otp that I'm going to do as its a 3d kind of challenge this is the frame I wanted to put inside each box all decorated up.

And this is a photo of one my first ornament made for one of the matchboxes I'm going to use the same image for the ornament that goes on the box, and I've found some sweet images to use, these will all be done in a couple of colour combinations like pink silver and white, red, gold and white and silver, red and white.....

Also I've been working on my altered cigar box/teacaddy swap for my partner Sandi and its all done nearly ready to post so this is a tiny sneak peek of it.
and this is a sneak of some of the goodies inside the box.

Right now I must go have to get the kids out the door and get ready to go to the shops have to stop off and get a few goodies for embellishing my matchboxes and also pick up my Paris goodies for my swap with Tabitha of

Blue Bazaar just got in Graphic 45's steampunk paper and their staples so yay I ordered some and they are being delivered today so woo hoo so love Graphic 45.....
