Quilting and bottles and paper!

These are house blocks I made for a swap on one of my Yahoo groups. We have 18 swappers!

 This is an altered bottle I made for a challenge on my CDA group. I mod podged tissue on a Crown Royal bottle. A layer of red and a layer of purple. I then glues some old thick lace to it. I embellished with chain and charms and topped it with an old copper piece I had.
top of boxThis is a paper mache box I covered with Graphic 45's  A Secret Garden line. The flowers were a punchout sheet of same papers. I added wooden feet and mod podged it.

 A small altoid tin I covered with the same above papers.
inside of tinI added two minis I had to inside and also used mileflore beads with bead caps for feet.

This is a little scene I made using the above papers. I use two of the one with the girl for a stand out effect.

front of boxThis is a box I made from the Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary paper line. I embellished with black beads and black dazzle line stickers. The flowers are cut twice and raised with foam sticky squares.

front side of bookletThis is the little accordian book I made to go inside the box. There is room for pictures, journaling, etc. Also A Ladies Diary line.

Small bottles I made for the second part of the CDA challenge. These bottles range from 1" to 2". I used beads, dazzle sickers, glitters and charms.

More stuff I've been making

 This is a doll I made from an Elinor Peace Bailey pattern called 'Anne of the Celtic Mist'. I took a class with Elinor but made another doll. I did make this head so she could paint the face and now I have finally made the rest of the doll.
 The face that Elinor made.
This is a quilt I made for a quilt guild challenge. The theme was holidays and you coulf search for really odd and obscure ones. I found Mad Hatter's Day which was October 6 due the the 10/6 on the hat. I love Alice and got to use some of my Alice fabrics. The back which I don't have a picture of has Tennison vignettes of Alice's adventures.
