A Puzzling Situation!

I've been working on a new art project! A bunch of my scrappy peeps over at CropCircles  and I are doing a puzzle piece swap. We each purchased a puzzle and sent a piece to each of the members in our group. We then alter each others piece in whatever way we wish and send them back to the owner . The altered pieces are then reassembled and Viola! We all end up with a unique piece of art filled with lovely little messages from our friends. Warning: LOTS of photos!
So here are the pieces that I have done so far....
 A pink Paislee rub on over Heartfelt Creation paper.
Heartfelt Creation paper and Studio Calico stars painted with Smooch
Awesome Stampendous metallic embossing powder { my new addiction thanks to KELLY KLAPSTEIN }on a wood piece.
Awesome paint splatter stamp colored with Smooch instead of inks.
Heartfelt Creation paper and Martha Stewart butterfly punch
Stampin 'Up embosslit butterfly
More Studio Calico wooden stars painted with Smooch

 Prima dancer charm and music note rub-ons by ?????
  Gabriella papers from Bo Bunny
More Bo Bunny papers
Can you guess that I did these three pieces at the same sitting? lol Bo Bunny again!

Lots of clock stamps...largest one stamped using the Stampendous emboss powder again.

This is one of the shabby colors in this line of Stampendous powders. Isn't it gorgeous???
Another in the metallic line of embossing powders...this one is called Hunter green
And this is the last one that I have done so far... I looooove the pink shabby embossing powder...soooo pretty!
I used a variety of stamped verses from several different sets including Unity Stamps, Inkadinkadoo,Tim Holtz and Maya Road.
I am soooo anxious to get my puzzle pieces back from the girls! Can't wait to get my puzzle re- assembled  and hanging on my craft room wall. I'll share that with you when it gets completed. Thanks for popping by today. Happy scrapping!
