I'm Getting Back In The Swing of Things!

I've been creating this weekend and having a lot of fun! Just wanted to share a few projects I've been working on.

First - I finished my 1960's ATCs for the Decades swap that Bree (hotmama) is hosting over at SiStv. I managed to make them all from one tie-dye t-shirt. I kinda like the way they look all together:
Next - I made a pair of earrings from guitar pics I got at the Gibson Store/Factory in Nashville:
They were super simple to make. I just punched a hole in each pic with my crop-a-dile, then attached a jump-ring and a couple beads and wa-la! Souvenirs ready to dangle from my ears! Yeay!

P.S. It was really fun to see the guitarmakers busy at work at the Gibson factory! Here's a pic I took when we were there:

And last but not least is something I made awhile ago, but I couldn't post anywhere, because it was a surprise for Michael! It's the one-year anniversary card I made for him - I gave it to him at our cabin in the Smokies on our anniversary (October 13th):
The picture was taken on our wedding day, right before the ceremony. It's hard to believe it's been a year already!

So, I'm off to create more stuff, but first I want to remind you to stop by Scrapping The Music and check out the slide show for "Smells Like Teen Spirit" tomorrow morning! I sooo wanted to do a layout for that song, but it just didn't work out with the vacation and all. Tomorrow evening the new challenge will be up and I did do a layout for that one - it's a fun song. I hope you will want to play along!

Til tomorrow - happy scrapping everyone!

Those ATC"S are so cute. What a great way to recycle.
It looks like you had fun on your trip....
I'm sure it was a blast watching them make guitars. :)
