Vicki's Crafty Challenge

Vicki Chrisman challenged the design team, ahhhh, FUN!!! Her challenge was to use images from the new Crafty Secrets Image & Journal Notes Booklet Girlfriends and to use any Crafty Secrets stamp set. A perfect time to alter this mirror I got at a junk store! See how dirty it was, yucko, it took some scrubbing to get it cleaned up!

There was a thin sheet of acetate over the pretty foil paper, I took the acetate and paper out before I started scrubbing. I didn't want to use the foil paper because I knew I would be covering most of it up and I wanted to use Crafty paper. The foil paper was so fragile, it was tearing, so I decided to punch a background piece for the sentiment I used from the Support The Girls stamp set. I glued pink & clear crystals in the holes around the top of the mirror. I attached the big Prima flower that I sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist and put a big pink crystal brad in the center, tied the ribbon on the handle, done!
Be sure and go check out some of the other design team blogs and see what they did!
