For the Craftster meetup last weekend with rackycoo, cackle and Killam Creative, the little swap suggestion was to craft small tins or ATCs for each other based on a theme.  Of course those three are all awesome papercrafters but I decided to suck it up and do my best (at least I'd get something fantastic out of the deal!)  Grin.  I told them to be fair, they'd need to bust out their sewing machines for our next in-person swap!  Cheesy 

Cackle's theme was mermaids.





Rackcoo's theme was child beauty pageants.







Killam Creative's theme was butterflies, you'll find her altoid tin over on the machine embroidery board

These are great! How did you do the water for the mermaid? The pageant girls are a hoot! We always joke about the "Children of the Damned Corn".  Cheesy

Thanks Lime!  The water on the back of cackle's tin is a section of really pretty tie dye scrapbook paper.

Man, those kids still creep me out. *shiver* I busted out a sewing needle and embroidery thread for ya (and maybe a little paper...) This was such a fun weekend. Thanks for your fabulous hospitality. You are an amazing cook and the only person to ever get me that close to a goat... sheep... a baby turkey... chickens... and a cow! Smiley
