Having celebrated a big "-0"  birthday this year, I decided I needed to have something to remember it by. This started as a puzzle blank, which was given me as part of a birthday bag of goodies (my friend knows me so well!!), I decided to use it to create an altered "birthday memory" puzzle.



I numbered the pieces and then jumbled them up and picked pieces at random. I did not use any direction and I love how it came out! All the bits and pieces were from birthday wrapping paper & tags, the invites/rsvp cards/thank you cards (you may notice an Alice in Wonderland theme to some pieces - I had a Mad Hatter's Tea Party for my birthday party), the fabric from my hat, birthday chocolate wrappers/wine labels and the glitter that was in the same goody bag as the puzzle. The ribbon hanger was from a present and the little glittery wrapped roses were part of the table decorations I made out of large playing cards.

I had a lovely birthday and was spoilt rotten and every time I look at this, I remember what presents were from which friends and the fun that I had at my party.

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Very colorful. I love the pops of glitter, too. I know about the blank puzzles, but lately I've been gathering old puzzles at thrift stores to use in altered art. I have a Hannah Montana puzzle that already has several pre-glittered pieces. Your work has given inspiration on how to incorporate them in a design. Thanks. Smiley
