Challenge Between Friends

Hello My Stamping Friends!

Today is a fun day for my friend Darlene and I,
we are sharing with you an altered project we did.
To set the stage for this reveal let me back track a
couple of months ago when Darlene and I went treasuring
 hunting at a Goodwill store together. We spotted these
 matching wooden books that actually had clocks inside them.
So we decided to buy them and challenged each other
 to redo them secretly and see what we came up with.
So here is what we each came up with ,
you can get more info on hers by clicking here to go to her blog!!
First is the before pictures of the clock.


Darlene's wonderful Christmas project !
Isn't it awesome!!!!
 I just love the Graphics 45 paper she used, and
of course it had to be in purple her favorite color!
Way to go Darlene!

Here is the one I made, since I couldn't find a battery
 small enough I removed mine and made it
 a shadow box.

I used Crafty Secrets paper,Prima flowers, and some other
 flowers, lace,& buttons in my stash.The paint,needle and spool
are from Michaels.

So there you have it our "Friends Challenge",
hope you enjoyed it and that it inspired you to
 challenge a friend too!
Please take time to go see Darlene's blog she is very
 talented and will definitely inspire you!
Until next time big {{{ HUGS}}} to all, and
May God bless you!!!
