Compendium of Curiosities II

 Pocket Watch - Challenge #9

 Pulled out my trinket boxes and had fun digging through them to find just the right things for Challenge #9 at Studio L3.
This week is the Pocket Watch and is found on page 35 of
Simon Says Stamp will be giving a $25 gift certificate to their shop to one lucky randomly selected participant in this week's challenge!

I found so many kewl things that I had a hard time deciding just which ones to use. I decided to go with a simple and elegant design for this one as I know I'll be making
several other tiny works of art so I can swap them out when I want something different.
I'll be putting it on a chain or pretty ribbon to wear as a necklace.

Be sure to check out Tim's book and see what fun stuff he does.
We will be working out way through the techniques in a random order chosen by
Linda at Studio L3 and we would love to have you join us!

As a side sister and I took a little road trip to
our local scrapbook store She Scrapbooks today. 
It is 30 minute drive and I wanted to check out its new location. 
Donna Downey was teaching classes there today, but I didn't find out in time to sign up.
I was hoping to meet her, but I got there on their lunch break and didn't really have the time to hang out for the few hours before the next class started. 
I'll have to pay attention and hopefully she will be back again soon!

I did pick up some Picket Fence Distress Stain which I can't get at my local Michaels or JoAnns and a couple other small things that I wanted to have on hand for upcoming challenges. 

Now my pile of goodies on my desk is calling me.
I still need to do my June tag for Tim's Tags of 2012 and
I'm itching to do Saturday's StepXStep at Frilly and Funkie
Hope everyone has a great evening!  I'm off to play!

Hi Anna!
Really love the time piece. So different without an element of clock hands or numbers. I love that you can change it out on the ribbon to wear a number of ways! Sounds like you had fun today! Wish I could have been there! Hugs, Shel

Anna, this is stunning! The little scene you created is so sweet, and I love your idea to create other designs to swap out. Really clever and so creative! Thanks for joining the challenge!
