Altered Letters!

For the swap on we had to alter 2 letters of your partners choice, my partner is Kerribowpeep, she choose the letters "K" and "A", the "K" is for herself and she wanted the letter "A" for her boyfriend, how cute! lol! her theme for her letters was "The SteamPunk Collection" not really my style and wasn't sure if I would be able to pull this one off or not, any of you that know me and my work know that this is not what I am use to doing at all, but I think this turned out pretty good!!! I would definetly try this style again!! not bad at all, see I did went outside of my confort zone. This is what I created for my partner Kerri, I do think she is going to love it!! I used the Steampunk Debutante collection, pearls and lace on the "K" little roses, brads to hold the string to makes laces, a heart shaped dollie which is trimmed in pearls, and feathers. For the letter "A" I used Tim Holtz gears, Tim's grunge board heart and key and I used the Modern Marvels paper from Steampunk, and edge the sides of the letter with the victorian transformers collection.

I wasn't sure if I could pull this one off, but what you think? Do I do the Steampunk Collection up right!!!

Someone Special!!

this is made for my friend Vicki (midnitescrapper) on, she is not expecting this, but she has been on my mind so I just wanted to make her a little something just to let her know that I appreciates her strengrh and her strong will to carry out everything she has does here on, she someone I don't know personally but I do know she is always very kind and always stands strong and never gives up!! I always tell her to keep your head up and she has done that, that is why I chose her as Someone Special!! God Bless You My Friend!!!

I also wanted to add something I know she really likes.......Charms!! I hung some beautiful pink charms off the sides of it to give it a little special but soft touch!! Vicki and I have been in many different charms swaps together that is why I know she will definately love that part of it!!
another thing I know she likes is stick pins....we have swapped many of those as well so that too is an added embellishment she will definately appreciate! :}
I really enjoyed making this for my friend, this is a well deserved gift for her!!
