All Around

And now for something completely different....Gill Birch, over in the Twinchie,Inchie & Rinchie group on Facebook decided to set group members a challenge. Her challenge was to create something using 10 Rinchies. For those that don't know, Rinchies are 1" circles. 
As most of you know I love working with smaller items and just had to take up the here is my entry. I have altered a CD, first I covered it with some Tim Holtz backing paper and then using my fabby set of Oxford Impression Stamps I stamped the images on to the spare backing paper, also stamping a pin, press stud and the word "sew" on the cd, then distressed the edge with distress ink.
Next I coloured the images and then randomly cut out 10 Rinchies using my inch circle punch...adding them on the outer part of the cd.  The cotton reels were added  to the center of the cd, along with a pair of scissors. I will also be entering this altered cd in to the challenge over at.....
as they have a "Sewing" themed challenge going on at the moment. 
It's been a while since I joined in any challenges on a regular basis, so I intend to remedy that ...
