Late last year I was asked by Kathy to join a swap with Debbie and Donna. We had to alter a puzzle piece using some Basic Grey Periphery paper and the theme vintage children. I've finally finished mine, and here it is:

I've used some Basic Grey rub ons, various ribbons, prima flowers, tulle, a pin from Papier Valise, a tiny little test tube (a Durham tube to us scientists), a Collections chipboard heart painted with Tim's crackle paint, a button from my stash, a lock also from my stash, a little gold frame I bought at Christina's and some papery flowers from God knows where. The stamp is Heidi Swapp, and I used it because it's one of the few that would fit inside the frame.
I'm hoping the girls like it - I loved the picture and it reminded me of all the little friendships I had growing up, where my best friend was the whole world to me. We'd share secrets and give each other little presents like lockets and flowers made into daisy chains, and sit and make clothes for our little dolls, and share dreams about what we'd do when we grew up.
Well I've certainly grown older, but I don't think I ever want to grow up!


  1. Teresa I love it, can't wait to see it in the flesh, so to speak. Now I really have to get a move on with mine.
