Are you all wrapped up in warmth or are you diving into a dessert that is all wrapped up in yummy goodness? You have a prompt that has many different meanings, grab the camera and show us how you are interpreting "all wrapped up"!

 
I truly love these challenges each week!
 
They cause me to "Wrap by Brain" around things
I normally wouldn't.  They make me aware.
 
As I went about my week, I realized there's a lot of
"Wrapping" going on in my life!
 
There was the wire-wrapped jewelry I created this week.



There's the blanket I 'wrap' up in each night as I sit with my hubby and son and there were the yummy burritos we 'wrapped up' and ate one night. 
 
There were findings/accessories projects that I 'wrapped up' (finished) and then 'wrapped up' (literally) and shipped off this week.
 
Then, I spent several hours "All Wrapped Up" experimenting with some pics in Photoshop Elements,.....



 
 Yep, that pretty much "Wraps it up"!



 

 
You should "Wrap Up" what you're doing right now
and go see what the other challenge participants
have "All Wrapped Up" for the week!
 
Until Next Time,
 
Peace, Love and Happy Wrapping!
 
Cheers,
~Shel~

  15. Lovely earrings... think I like the tird pair the best. Are they dyed blue coral? I have some but yours is a much prettier colour!
    I'm surprised at how few people showed themselves wrapped up in front of the TV or reading!

    1. They were labeled as 'blue lava stones' when I purchased them and I too thought more people would be wrapped up in books, seeing how we all seem to love to read!! And of course,,...the t.v., too!!
