When Life Hands You Lemons....

Yup, sometimes you have to work with what you got. In my case I made a big pitcher of lemonade! Haha. I figured what the heck, and decided to make the best of it! So instead of the "Ooohh, that looks painful!" or "Oh My. What happened?" Or even the simple "Ouch!" I am hoping for some light hearted grins...LOL.

This is the before shot as you may remember. Not so pretty, quite monstrous really...Ha Ha.


And these are the after's! I had a little too much fun I think. It's totally blinged out.

I used TT stamps: Whirlygigs, Kabloom, Just Picked and Hanging By A Thread. The paper is one from Marah Johnson's CI lines. The jewels are Hiedi Swap and ribbons are May Arts and TT's Twill.

I stamped with brown Stazon and then traced all the images with colored glaze pens AFTER all the pieces were decopaged.

I even colored the string and elastics...LOL. So there ya have it! Think anyone will notice it?

If only I was a star I could auction it off after I was through with it and make millions. Or $23.75, beggers can't be chosers.







Thanks to my Jeffypoo who was sweet enough to attach the flower for me as I am not aloud to alter the metal piece cuz the therapist wants it back, so he attached it with wire for me. What a guy! xo

That is incredible! You really can beautify anything! I prefer your version much more. If you have to wear it they might as well make it fashionable.
