Altered Starbucks Bottle


My sister asked me to put together an idea for favors for her son's graduation party. So I decided to alter a starbucks bottle. His school colors are Red and Black and although the bottle isn't complete I wanted to put it on my blog. The finishing touches will be added at my sisters this weekend. We plan on putting a small tag with the words "thank you" and attaching it to the silver thread and filling the bottle with kisses. My sister loved the idea so now the hard part is getting 28 bottles. She has 6 and I have 10. Let the drink-feast begin, we still need 12 bottles.

Tigger page


I have a ton of pictures that need to make their way into my scrapbook and I also have a bunch of pages that I swapped at one time or another. Some pages I have taken apart and some I really like. This is one that I really like, although all the designs are stickers (which I rarely use), I just don't mind because it's such a fun looking page and my son really like it. This page was made by my sister Helena...it was the first time she participated in a swap and was constantly on the phone to me asking all kinds of questions, sending me photos LOL. She did great and I am glad I was finally able to use her page.


I have many more swapped pages in holders and I look forward to using them more to get my pictures in the scrapbook and I also look forward to sharing them with you. As always, thanks for stopping by, have a great night.

Me



I didn't have anything to show for this weekend. My son and I were a bit under the weather on Saturday and today was beautiful, so I planted my garden and all my flowers. Took me 3 hours but it's worth it. In June and July I am in my glory
with all the flowers surrounding me on the patio.
I made this page for ASB, the topic was "Me". I am glad I did it, I would not normally do something like this and I am glad I finally did it. I now plan on doing one of my husband and adding it to Logan's Scrapbook. The beading was by accident, I made the holes, then didn't like them so I decided to stitch the holes, I didn't like that too much and decided to brighten up the page by adding the beads. When I finished one circle of beads I looked at the page and thought....it looks a little like a halo, so I added the second set, didn't want anyone to think I was implying I was an angel LOL.
I really like how the page came out in the end. I find that I start a page and have an idea of how it is going to come out and then I wind up with something totally different. Sometimes accidents are good. Thanks for stopping by and everyone...have a great week!!!
