Altered Prima Bottle

Mar 29, 2010

This looks so much prettier in person. I wish you could see all the sparkle. It is hard to photograph it well so that you can see the entire thing. Anyway, I had fun getting my fingers messy today. Not something I usually do as I am a super neat scrapper and have never liked having my hands dirty… never, ever, ever. And I passed that gene right on to my Sweet Pea Terri. That girl does not get dirty either. I wish I could have my son-in-law share with you the story of their first camping trip. He is a Saint is all I have to say, I have never laughed so hard!

I hope you enjoy today’s project. Trying to think of something to make for tomorrow. I have a feeling it will be small and neat. Two days of messy just might throw me over the edge.
