As some of you know I got to go on a crafting retreat with my crafty friends this last weekend!
I worked on a number of projects, but this is by far my favorite!
We stopped into the only scrapbook store in Payson, az
And when we were leaving a very nice lady outside snapped this picture of all of us.
So I sent the picture to walgreens.com, and went to pick the pictures up the next day.
Yep, I had it printed up 8 times,
Then I gave one copy to each of the girls, and I challenged them to use it in some sort of project.
We had a lot of fun getting our craft on!
Here is a fab close-up of the upper corner with som metal gear fabulousness!
I also stamped in the film strip with staz-on ink.
I obtained thus fun birdcage from one of the other girls,
I colored it with my metallic ink pen, and then distressed it,
I also borrowed a cogs and gears die cut,
And used some of my stash of color coredinations black paper
Then I distressed those too. Now looking at them I think they would have been really awesome
I got this great little ruler at an estate sale while we were up in Payson.
I love what it added to the page.
Finally, here is a little close up of the butterflies
That I punched out of some metallic looking paper.
Plus you can see a close up of the metal bits and bobs at the bottom of the birdcage.
