Hi everyone,  I belong to a group on facebook called the FreeSpirit Cigar Box Swappers,
and one of the wonderful ladies is having a DT call for FreeSpirit Production.  
Here is Lisa's shop. .  You can see all the details on Lisa's youtube here: You have to make 2 projects. 
Here is what I have entered.
For my first project I entered this altered canvas I made for my swap this month.  I used graphic 45 steampunk and old curiosity shoppe.  I used a miniature Angel head & a pearl center rose shank button from Lisa's shop.
I also used some TH wings, clock pieces and mini coat hanger.  i used a lace trim i got in a swap.  some iamroses cherry blossoms, flat back pearls, and a lil bling.  I loved making this one!!
Didn't think I had it in me to do grunge or steampunk...
I papered both sides of canvas then cut it open.

For my second project I entered this cute stick pin holder.
I used a valentine tag I got at Micheals last year on clearance.
First I covered the whole tag with gesso, then I used MissCaroline paper to cover it up. 
I made a window box out of corrugated paper, covered it with gesso,
then colored it with some chalk ink. I used one of Lisa's pearl rose shanks
on the center of the flower.  I love the rose shanks.
I used a lil lace and some trim.
I made the pink flower out of some prima flowers

I used a few iamroses, and I'm not sure where I got
the die, but its cute! I love the dressform on it.
Thank you Lisa for the opportunity to enter in you DT call....
