Bags of Charm!

As they say in the A Team "I love it when a plan comes together" and thats certainly what happened with this piece.
It started off as my Compendium of Curiosities challenge {Pg 63}
'Dimensional Collage Fragments' I decided to use a fragment charm.
Obviously no collage is complete without a bit of 'Ephemera' which happens to be this weeks Simon Says Stamp'n'Show's theme, so i found a cute little image of boy and girl about to kiss, old ticket, film strip, love heart.... this made me think of love, or should i say 'amour' which gave the piece a distinct french flavour which tied in perfectly with Hels Sunday Stamper 'Paris' theme.
And what started out as a plain key ring sort of developed into a pretty cool bag charm.

Complete with Eiffel Tower.
I'm real pleased how this turned out.. what do you think?

Girlfriend, you are rapidly achieving the title of "Jewelry Goddess" -- this is another fabulous creation! The Fragment collage is awesome, and the whole concept of a bag charm just makes me happy. Every girl needs her bling!

By the way, I've been wearing my wonderful and beloved bird pendant, and SO MANY people have asked where I got it. It's a huge hit! Thank you again-- I love it!
