Fun in Gerrie's craft room

 I had fun on my play date with Gerri from It's all Treasure.   I had the unique opportunity to play with Gerri's craft stash, she invited 12 of us from all over the world into her space to share her stash with all of us.  It was fun to see what everyone made with basically the same products.  It was fun to play with such a gorgeous and different array of products too.  I used her beautiful foiled paper, which made me think I have some wrapping paper similar to it that I could be using.  I loved the printed oval and the way she made the butterfly with the beads strung through the wire!  My photo does no justice to the gorgeous mirrored button with the fringed string.  The sweet little girl with butterfly wings is hers, along with the neat black ric rac, I think it may be a different kind of German scrap she uses.  I added another image from my stash by Gecko Galz called Fairies.  I used some Tattered Angels sprays and masks along with my Perfect Layers rulers to frame up my layers.  Thank you Gerri for hosting the play date, I really appreciate all the goodies I have left over to make many more projects with too.  Stop by Gerri's blog to see what everyone made. 
I will enter this into the Pretty Little Pixie challenge at the Gecko Galz Yahoo group.  We are growing daily, I would love for you to join the fun there too!  
Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
