Free for All week - using up the 'waste'

Hello, today I am kick-starting another week of 'Free For All' week!  This is a way that we can showcase what we have done with our Tando stash that doesn't qualify for the named weeks :D 
 
You may have noticed that when you buy some of the 3D, Arches, frames (and more)  pieces they come with the 'cut-outs' or 'waste'....far too good to just throw away eh!  The larger ones are ideal for turning into little wall hangings.  I have a stand at a Craft Fair to fill so I am busy using up these pieces in this way.  Here is an arch from the Tando 3D Boat Set...
 
 
 
This is where the arch came from....
 
 
A painty background, flower, lace and a butterfly! Just add a quote and you have an easy present!  The quote is from PaperArtsy and I am sure that we can all relate to it hahaha! Here are a few more that I have done...





The last one needs a word I think...any ideas?????

Thank you for popping by and take care out there, HUGS xxx

Great set of arches, love the chocolate quote! How about something like "imagine" or "journey" on the last one?

Oh no! Now you've given me something else I should be doing for the craft fair! Stop already! ;-)

I'm being very naughty and looking at blogs instead of working. I need a whip cracker! Although a girl has to breathe for goodness sakes! :-)

The only word I can think of is 'Footloose', which isn't much use really xx

I'm always impressed when I see leftovers being used. These are no exception. All are fantastic. You are GREAT with embossing powder. Mine would be all over the arch!

Gotta admit, that's one high-flying shoe!

What about "high heels" for the wording on the last wall hanging? tee hee
