Bird Key Chain.



I LOVE my - ok, I'll admit it! - WEEKLY trip to Michael's. But even more exciting is when I have the opportunity to get out to my local independant scrapbooking store. It's only about 15 mins away, but they have terrible hours and with 3 kids it's months between visits. However I was there last week and picked up tons of neat little treats!! One of those things was a blank chipboard Maya Road bird-shaped keychain. I made it with three challenges in mind. First, The Shabby Tea Room. Their challenge this week is FRESH LIVING. A perfect Autumn theme. *Audrey, every week I look forward to seeing your work! :o( that you're leaving. *
The second challenge is Sir Stamp Alot. DISTRESS IT. Distressing is one of my favourite techniques. What is NOT one of my favourite things is trying to get a decent pic of a keychain! Really there is no way to lay this out to capture all the elements. So I just took tons of photos!
Thirdly, Paper Sundaes. They want to see a minimum of 3 embellishments. What fun!!





Thanks for looking,
Farrah
