scrumptious squares

The Yahoo Mixed media Group is doing a swap for 1 1/2 inch squares for the scrumptious squares in the Mixed Mania book study.  I was going back and forth with ideas and then....with deadline looming I just went for it.  This is a mosaic of polymer pieces.  Can I just say that these were a TON of fun to create.  I have lots of tiles with text.  I would just grab a few and see what they said.  And went with it.  I love how they conjure up little funny stories in my head. 

This is from a series of squares with vintage text, paper fabric (left over from the Stitch Alchemy book study) and lots of UTEE (colored and clear).  Unfortunately there is a lot of glare from the UTEE, making it a bit of a challenge to photograph and scan (I tried both).

Can't wait to see what the others have done with this swap! 
Another package I will eagerly await in the mail!!
