Map out your future.......

Over at
Let's get Shabby
Challenge # 54
It's all about
So for my DT piece I decided to create a Shabby Canvas...
I had so much fun putting this together....
My background is made from Tim Holtz idea-ology paper, embellished with a cute vintage post-card, tags, doilies, buttons, bottles, labels, buckles, transfers, lace, fabric, yo-yo's, paper butterflies, flowers, stitching and a vintage optical lens.
Now hop over to
Let's Get Shabby
..for the full deets
...and see what other wonderful inspiration the talented shabby girls have created for this MAP challenge and there's a fabulous  prize up for grabs for the challenge winner...  
 Thanks for Peeking!
