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.
