My Creative Time Throwback Thursday Challenge Episode 46 -My Gypsy Charm

Happy greetings to everyone.  Today I noticed that I have 20 followers, yay!! Bit by bit we're growing.  Thank you.
Today's project is for the "Throwback Thursdays" over at My Creative Time with Emma.  Her challenge for this week is to create a project with animals.  She used the Animal Kingdom cart to make her project and encouraged anyone that has this cart to make their project using this cart.  But whoever doesn't own it can use any other cart and make the animal theme project.

Ok so I made a Charm to hang from my Gypsy or Stylus. I will be hanging it from my Gypsy. I chose a Hippo and an Elephant because my girls' favorite stuffed animals are Hippo and Lalee as they call them.  I also cut my initials to kind of label my Gypsy. And of course I had to make a quilled flower to put on my project.

Create a Critter- Hippo- cut at 1.5- 4X- 2X with solid cardstock and 2X with Patterned paper.
New Arrival- Elephant- cut at 1.5- 4X- 2X with soli cardstock and 2X with Patterned paper
Storybook- Letters L & K (my initials) cut at 1 inch same procedure as the hippo and elephant.  The reason I cut it 4 times was to make each charm sturdy.  I didn't have chipboard or else it woud've been easier only 2 cuts (chipboard and patterned paper)
Cellphone Straps - from Beadalon- bought at Michaels
Jump rings for jewelry- form Darice
Jewels from Me and My big Ideas
Eyelets and Cropadile
Last but not least quilling paper from Quilled Creations for the Hippo's flower.

Thank you for stopping by and remember Comments are always welcome!

Quilled Hugs,
