This is a computer sketch for an idea I have. Can I get some opinions? does it at all look like ludo?  Its a simpler cuter version, but I want to make sure it's not to far fetched?
Thanks  Smiley

i'm really excited, I had so much fun during round 2.  Here is something that the labyrinth inspired me to make 6 months ago.

It isn't a fiery, but was inspired by them. I could'nt find a good picture with the body and the arms in the shot. Undecided

Hello everyone, so I've been pretty absent, but I received my final packages.  I loved everything I got in all three packages, and after memory card disaster, I've retook all pictures and will be posting everything her.  Smiley

Package #3

Here is a lovely notecard with the info on what she made

I love love love these hair clips, i'm wearing them right now  Grin

This is the kit that I got.  she chose this fabric because i'm a huge jim henson fan! I love it!  It is an embroidery kit.

These are three of her favorites that my partner sent me.  I've never seen the movie, I love this brand of hot coco, and this is actually one of my favorite lip glosses too! the one i have is almost out, so this came at a perfect time  Grin

These are a few extras I got, I love the owls, birds, and the note pads.

The last thing is going to come in handy when I go on the road in two weeks.  I love the colors, and it has my logo and it is a perfect fit! I also like the mock-up zune, he he. 

Package #2

I got some felt and buttons to add to my stash, these are two of my favorite materials!!

Next are two  handmade journals and one ceramic bowl.  The bowl is really pretty, I don't want to use it for food, it is too nice, maybe i'll fill it with some buttons.  Smiley

Finally is some extras.  more owl goodies (can never have too many  Grin)

Package #1

I lost the original pictures that I took, so I put everything together.  the only thing missing is the book the hot zone, my boyfriend had taken it two days after I got the package and started reading it.  He finished the book, loved it, but couldn't remember where he put it when I wanted to take pictures.

here is some local art

I had a great partner, both of us ran into some things that caused us to be behind, but It was worth the wait for everything!!

I want to thank lovething for the amazing package!!! also, for posting pictures for me!  Grin  I'm re-posting her pics, cause they were really good, and I'm going to add a couple more.  also at the end of the post, i'm going to put teaser pics of her package, that should be getting to her this week.

Here is a pic of the awesome tote she made me.  A lot of people that have seen the bag love it!

Here is me in my favorite hat ever!!

A button eyed squid, made from fleece. The eye is polymer clay.

An Other Mother button box. The colors are weird in the pictures but in real life they're closer to the movie. Also, the stripes do line up properly, but I accidentally put the lid on backwards in this picture.  Cheesy

A polymer clay key to Otherworld:

A circus mouse hat:

A tie for her boyfriend. I took a thrifted white silk tie and hand dyed it, then added the buttons.

Here are some teaser pics of the package I sent lovething....

This is the bookmark I received from tvelez! I love it so much! It's extra special because it is Jim Henson themed  Grin  She was worried that it was too big, but I love the size.  I actually want to make myself some huge bookmarks  Smiley

I had to scan the bookmark because my brother has not given me my camera back, hope the pics look ok

The paper is beautiful, and Big Bird is soft 

This is the back Smiley  I definitely need to get a Jim Henson book to use this with  Grin

I received my package from Lique!  I love it!

The extras are a hand made bar of soap.  It smell amazing, very subtle sweet lime smell, just like I like it  Smiley  Next is a pink note pad, I love note pads, I am always forgetting what I need to do, so this will help me get organized, Ha ha  Grin
Third is a needle holder.  I've never had one before, and it is awesome! I love the colors and the quote is funny!  I've already put it to use.

Finally is the pin cushion itself.  It is so cute, its a doughnut in pink and brown, my favorite colors!  It looks so real, I tricked my mom, he he.  Wink  Also, it is the perfect size!  Thanks again Angelique!!!! ( former El Pasoan, he he  Grin )

I received three bookmarks so far, they are all awesome, here they are!

The first one is from ellenmarie.

I've never seen bookmarks like these. I'm now a fan of these! especially the corner bookmarks! Love them!

The next one is from donniesgirl.

The next one is a fabric bookmark.  I love the fabics especially the pink fabric.  This is my second fabric bookmark i've owned, and they have both been from craftster swaps, ha ha.

The third one is from Cclewis05.

The main bookmark has an owl on it.  I love owls, and I love the colors.  On the back it says "that's what she said" which is an awesome quote from the office.

THank you everyone in my group, I  love everyones work.  It's neat to see everyone created something different.  Can't wait to see what tvelez sends! Also, my bookmarks are on their way, hope you all like them!! Grin
Can't wait for the next round!

Thanks to my partner who posted pics for me.  I've been sick........chickenpox........not fun @ 25, wish I had gotten them as a kid. Sad  Anyways, I'm going to post some of the pics I took.

I love love loved all the things I got.  Here are some accessories for my new car, key chain and air freshener.

I alternate sides every other week. 

My cat Squid loves the Ewan pillow too!  Thanks for this item, I will take it on the road with my as you suggested!

These stickers are the best! I've been sticking them everywhere, I even put one on my bass!  These are all my favorite pictures!!

I saw that she posted the other things, so I'll leave it at these.  I want to thank my partner for being so patient with me being sick, especially since you sent so soon! Thanks a million for everything!!

This is the stuff I got from AggieGirlKatelyn. I love it all!!!!!!! Thank you so much!!!!!  Can't wait for another round!

Next, I have to admit, I don't know what this is used for?  But I love it, it's my favorite colors, and has a classic line!
