WOYWW: The PA Edition

Hay Peeps,
Today's desk is a wash with all things PaperArtsy.
I've been making a spool keychain inspired by France's one over the PA blog for this weeks challenge.
I dug out one of my 'vintage' {as in had a very long time} stamp sets
and set to work, following along with the fab utube tutorial posted.
As you can see from the original i've also copycatted how she photographed it. lol
Here's a closer look
I added a little token to mine to represent the 'penny'.
I've no driving lesson today as my instructor is on his jollys so i'll have plenty of time to visit you all.. unlike previous weeks {sorry bout that}
And I might even get my woyww atcs made at some point today too.. I keep forgetting!
See you in blogland..
Stay Inky

Love the keychain spool Nicky. I'm halfway through mine. Love the theme you chose and your little shrinkie piece is great. Hope to finish mine before I go to bed but it's getting a bit late even for me, lol!

Hi Minxy, I'm getting an early start, even if Julia hasn't posted yet. Poor dear is probably bone tired from wood working.
I have seen a couple of these key spools and find them rather interesting, yours is a beauty!

This really is a pretty make and I am sure there are a few of us that will want to give it a try

Oh for the time to actually DO real crafty stuff rather than wedding stuff. Oh well, only another 4 and a half weeks and then... oh...packing for a house move.

Oh well.
