 My second entry for the TAWS inspiration challenge. My first entry was based on a different inspiration photo. Oops. I think this one matches much better!

A few projects to end 2013 and ring in 2014.

November is all about Christmas Cards.
These cans needed a cupboard so I made on out of
chipboard and G45 Curtain Call papers.
Finished.  Behind the paper is styrofoam in case
 I need to hang more goodies.

I decorated a small chipboard circle with my favorite baby.

I dismantled an alarm clock and made it into a frame for my photo.

One of my favorite you tubers, Cynthialoowho, creates beautiful items with filigrees and lots of bling.  She inspired me to cut up some filigrees and create a mask.

An altered book/box for a challenge.  Inspired by another favorite you tuber, 
ALittleShabbyChic, I covered everything with layers of pretty lace. 

My favorite husband and favorite babylayout using Prima papers
and a few new die cuts (Tim Holtz window and Chicken wire from Simon Says Stam).

 Another Cynthialoowho inspired filigree treasure.  I totally copied her idea to make a box out of different shapes.  I also loved her blingy embellishments and had to try it for myself.  Super fun.

 These were originally gold but I used silver metal mixatives to make them sparkly silver.  I like how the bottom of the box is halfway down, giving the illusion of box legs.

 Not sure what this will be but I had fun making matchbook boxes with the window die as the top.  Maybe for storing some new doo dads?  :-)

 A butterfly box.  I'm constantly saving boxes (this originally held a large roll of tape) and I decided to finally put one to use.  Covered with lace, flowers, and some appliques  that I've hoarded forever.

I started this school album over a year ago.  The idea came from xannero on you tube.  She is so inspiring.  I finally took some time to add some photos and embellishments.  Still not done as I have pocket tags to journal on and a few more pictures to add...  work in progress.

 My favorite baby again :-)  I used gesso, stamps, embossing paste (shimmerz), Lindy's sprays (Scintillating Silver), Prima bling, Thickers, star die cuts and much more.  Hung this on my Miranda made (MsLiberty25 on you tube and etsy) hanger.  love it.
