Doing the shrinkys in a mosaic style on top of the tin was a fun idea.

L-O-V-E the tin you made, OriginalYouth!!  it's really creative and great execution.  And EARLY!  Gracious sakes, you started off this round with a bang!

Thanks!  It was a fun theme to craft for!  Now I am way behind on all my other projects due this weekend, so I guess I was procrastinating by distracting myself with the fun-ness of that tin!

Drat - I'm so bummed I missed this one. I had marked down to sign up before the 31st but I should have realized it would fill up quickly. I will keep an eye out for Round 4.

In the meantime I will enjoy the gallery. Love, love, love the skullies!!

Awesome!!! as I was so curious about it from the beginning, OriginalYouth gave me the chance to have a peek and I was almost speechless, it is so beautiful! what a great idea of doing a mosaic with shrinkies! wow! so detailed and well made. And I love the contents too, especially the charm bracelet looks so beautiful!

Great job OriginalYouth, you have set the level too high now!

Ok, it just occured to me than when you said "one inch square" that EACH tile was 1 inch, not all 18 of them together....wow, blame the cold medicine on that one!

Crafting hangover much?  Just teasing. I know I have one this morning!  It's from painting for Miss Taloola last night!
Yes dear, each tile was 1" square before they were baked.

Well, I got my Tin from LuxieLou this afternoon and it ROCKS!

She made the tin itself in Wonder Woman theme,  and filled it with Ice Cream items! 

Here it 'tis:

The tin itself is covered with Red fimo on top, and a wonder woman logo made of shrinky dink plastic.  The bottom is covered with blue fimo, and white stars are applied to the top of that, so it is VERY 3-D and cool!  Also, 2 wonder woman shrinky necklaces.  (action shot and reason for 2 to follow).

Next, the inside of the tin was ice cream lovelyness!

Top L, clockwise:
Ice Cream charm (adopted by my daugther's fave hoodie), 2 Ice Cream Pins, and A PEZ Charm (destined for my fave hoodie!).
At the bottom, a FANTASTIC Ice Cream charm bracelet!  I'm going to pick my outfit around it so I can wear it to the party I'm going to this evening!  Sooooo cute!  I had hinted that I wanted one, and she came through like a champ!

Last, the obligatory action shot; my 3 year old obliged.  She is wearing HER Wonder Woman necklace (she can't have mine!)


Thanks again, LUXIELOU!  Great job, especially for your first swap!  I love it ALL!
(P.S. Sorry my pics are bad, she may post more later!)

I love that.  And how cute that she made you matching Wonder Woman necklaces!  Nice work!

Remember, it was her first swap, so the 2 of us working quickly will let her move on to other swaps!  It was intended.

Well, then, she's got well-deserved positive feedback coming her way!
