Drayton Lady atc swap - My Time to craft

Oh Liz! I am just getting organized - yes I am that organized person by nature -
just takes me a while to get there!
Recieved my swaps from the Drayton Lady swap on Trimmcraft on
Wednesday - thanks Cheryl, Sandie J and Crafty Critter!
So last night put on my thinking cap for this months swap....
I have combined my swap this month with the My Time To Craft challenge
which is neglected or forgotten stash!
"Underwater bubbles"
use a handmade background of bubble painting.
eyelets and ribbon and some hand coloured underwater
leather die cut creatures.
The neglected or forgotten item are the bracelet fastenings that I bought an age ago - thinking "oh! they could be good for something!" - gathering dust perchance!

Anyway had lots of fun doing these - atc's are cool and I always enjoy them - don't do enough!
I'm sure everyone has some neglected stash - go pay them a visit!


  1. Claire, There are beautiful and sooo clever you should be on every DT on blogland! I wish I had your mind! I have these bracelet thingys too, never in a million years would I have thought that up. I love your bubbles too I cannot just cannot, wait to see these in the flesh! Your a genius its a hard job sharing your atcs out as everyone has to get a shot of these they are brilliant and different EVERY month!!! Thank you for joining in!
