Oh so charming!

Last night was one of the nights where I was on the fence about creating. I didn't really want to, but knew I should. I have decided when I am in that mood, I will try to create something small to keep my mojo moving and continue the sense of accomplishment.

I had picked up the new Maya Road cameo chipboard pieces from The Art Life Shop the other day and I knew I wanted to make an off the page project. So here is my first one.

I think it still needs a "little something" like a lace bow or a fancy crystal about the cameo piece, but I wore it today and I have to admit, love it. Here is a close up of the cameo piece.

I used Crate Paper's Restoration line and a plastic flower from Michael's. A touch of Stickles and some Glossy Accents and ta-da! A custom cameo.

Of course, I couldn't stop at just one! Nope, making these is like eating one chocolate covered almond. I am so fooling myself thinking I am not going to sneak back for a few more.

This one is featuring some of my favorite papers from GCD Studios and while it doesn't appear in the photo, black diamond Stickles. It has to have some bling.

Lastly, I ,(FINALLY), finished a charm I made at CHA of 2010. It fell apart shortly after walking away from the booth where I made it and I have been meaning to fix it since. I am sure you will be glad to hear that I did and it is finally in a wearable form now.

It is hard to tell, but it says "me" on it. It was the word I was using last year because I realize that things I want in life start and end with me, with my own power to create fabulousness, that I am the one person ultimately in control of how I approach life.
