TOMIC Challenge #53 - 1st anniversary!!!!

It's Tomic's 1st Birthday!! HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!! The challenge theme is: Anything Goes! There will be several winners. Yeah!

Since the theme is "Anything", I decided not to do a card. In my opinion, it's one of those rare chances that I can do something else other than a card. I love creating my very own 3D stuff & get really excited when I'm able to "bring my creation to life". I have been looking for a nice desk organizer but haven't found a suitable one yet. Hence, decided to construct my very own. ;P Here it is....

I always love to create a scene with Magnolia stamps & decided to incorporate it to this project.
Made the entire structure out of chipboard & added a clock mechanism to it. Totally pleased with how it turned out. Cute & practical. So proud of myself. LOL!

The desk organizer (17" x 12")

Coloured the Kaisercraft wooden hearts with Tattered angels Glimmer Mist. Added miniature potted plants & diecut fence (Lovely Fence - Cozy Autumn 2010 collection) to the backdrop of Tilda & Edwin dancing (Merry Little Christmas 2010 collection).

See the heart at the bottom left of the photo? It's a shaker box heart embellishment that I made out of transparency, glass beads & Kaisercraft wooden heart. Drew the face of the clock using Photoshop & added stickers to the center & fixed on a clock mechanism.
