Mystery Craft Challenge..

Hi all,
a while ago while thumbing through Instagram I saw that Jenn from
Delightfully Noted  was having a mystery craft challenge on
 her blog.
 

 
Curious me hopped over to see, and before I knew it had
signed up as one of the participants.  :)
 

 

She sent all (13 gals) the same wooden laser cut frame with a cute filigree edge.

 
 
 
 
 
I failed to get a picture of it before I started using it so I took this from her blog.
 
The winner of this challenge will receive all kind of
 wonderful Prizes
 
The very day my package arrived in the mail I had picked up a small wooden slice at a thrift shop for $.75 cents.
 
Immediately the thought of creating a 'fall forest' popped
 into my head.
 
I got busy creating because I knew I was going to be gone on a vacation to CA for a week.
 
 
I sewed a little wool skirt, painted the center of the wooden frame black, drilled a hole in the wood slice and added a branch, moss, and some paper flowers, and made some sculpey clay pumpkins.
 


After baking I painted the pumpkins and gave them wire twining's and bead leaves.  Last of all I gave them a sparkle of glitter.  My take of 'frost on the pumpkins'.
 
 

 
A couple of bleached, dyed, and glittered bottle brush trees and my 'fall forest' was complete and ready to be added to the base.

 
 
But it needed a little babe to wander in it.  (wink)
 
Yes, that's who the skirt was for.  A few days after I made my forest I found this sweet (naked) cupie doll at another thrift.  I knew she was the perfect addition to my 'fall forest'.
 
 
I dressed her and made her a fall banner to celebrate the season.  A flower garland graces her head.  I didn't want to hide that cute hair with a hat.

 
I sat the little scene on a plate and placed it on top of a black cake stand.  An estate sale treasure.


 
 
Oh it's just a silly little whimsical thing, but I had fun creating it and it makes me smile.  Now I am asking you , (my friends) to hop over to Delightfully Noted and vote for me.  That is if you like what I came up with.  Yup, that's how the winner of this challenge is chosen.  The voting begins on Thursday.
 
Voting is live now and I'd love if you'd throw a vote my way!  Here is a direct link:  http://bit.ly/VoteCraftChalnge
 
I'd love it if you would throw a vote my way!
 
And a big thanks to Jenn for putting this together!!
 
hugs,
Jann
