mummy dear

Remember my question about the
Vintage Optical Lens...
Well.......... Ta Da!!!
Thankyou all for your wonderful ideas, it was

Ann Lederhose

who first suggested using a Watch Crystal, in my comments so Ann can you email me your address and I'll post you a little vintage optical lens to create with, I'm sure you'll come up with something wonderful, If you haven't ever been to Ann's blog pop on over she Makes the most Gorgeous Scrapbook Layouts :)

Thankyou all so much for your ideas, I'm sure you not only inspired me with your thoughts on how to seal the back of this little lens, but inspired one another too

This picy shows how I finished off the back with the watch crystal like Ann suggested.

Oh and that sweet little image is from

The Stamping Queen

it's a Collections Ephemera Photographs card

Stay tuned, I've just gotten some slightly different lens

So I might need a little help with them after Christmas ;)

have a happy day, I know I will cause I've got myself a new necklace :)
