Long Time No "C"

Yep! It`s been a while between Creations, but DD had the great idea of challenging DH, as well as herself & yours truly to "make something" with the bits & pieces she chose for us...I forgot to take any "before" photos, but we were all given the same things: 1 glass jar, 5 buttons, 3 length of wire, 2 tissues, 9 puzzle pieces & a length of cardboard tubing...

The rules were simple enough, we had 3 hours to make "something", but we had to use EVERY ITEM, so we got to work...


We had a lot of fun trying to come up with different ideas, & even DH joined in...& it`s given me an idea for this month`s challenge over at Inkurable Stampers LOL, just have to work out a few details & set aside the actual TIME!!!
Anyway, the top photo is my DHs work (titled Planet Bug) using all the bits & pieces he was given plus some extra bits & some magazine cut-outs. Next, my DDs lovely bee creation, she covered the wire with the tissues (for the wings) & don`t you just love the crown...(Oh, to have the imagination of a child, I think we would all be better off, don`t you?), & the last photo, my attempt...it`s hard to see, but I painted the puzzle pieces, stuck words on them, attatched them with the wire to the tubing (which I covered with 1 tissue & painted, the other tissue I used to clean up LOL) I threaded the buttons (& some beads) onto wire & stuck some newsprint to the jar. I`ll be back later with a beautiful gift I received from DH ( made by him!!!) Enjoy your day, & don`t forget Sandie`s swap! Today is the last day to join :)

JAJAJAJA, qué buena idea la de tu hija, Vicky y qué divertida. Es genial ver lo diferente que ha quedado cada proyecto. Tu hija merece un premio, por simpática y original.
Besos, Cuchy
