CHAPTER 29: What makes you SHINE?

'Why, what are YOUR shoes done with?' said the Gryphon. `I mean, what makes them so shiny?'

Alice looked down at them, and considered a little before she gave her answer. `They're done with blacking, I believe.'

`Boots and shoes under the sea,' the Gryphon went on in a deep voice, `are done with a whiting. Now you know.'

`And what are they made of?' Alice asked in a tone of great curiosity.

`Soles and eels, of course,' the Gryphon replied rather impatiently: `any shrimp could have told you that.'

`If I'd been the whiting,' said Alice, whose thoughts were still running on the song, `I'd have said to the porpoise, "Keep back, please: we don't want YOU with us!"'

`They were obliged to have him with them,' the Mock Turtle said: `no wise fish would go anywhere without a porpoise.'

`Wouldn't it really?' said Alice in a tone of great surprise.

Did I mention how generous Sparkle Creations is?? They gave me a terrific stamp to use this week, and I just LOVE her! This is Charlotte, and here she is conveying presents!

Isn't this the cutest grungy gift bag?? And sooooo simple! I saw the tutorial on the Hero Arts blog, and immediately "needed" to make it! It's made from an ENVELOPE!

Can you see all the bling? I used stamps from Tim Holtz, and glittered up the grunge with Perfect Pearls. I colored Charlotte with Copic markers, then added perfect pearls to her apron and scarf. I used my really cool Imaginisce I-Rock tool to make her earring (love this product!).

So come join the fun! Bling up something and join our challenge - it doesn't have to be a card! You have until September 10th to play along.
