Altered Paint Can

This is the paint can I altered for my grandaughter Carlie..I used paper from Paper Studios, flowers from Petaloo flora doodles.  The ribbon is from my stash..I used a pearl swirl from Say it With Crystals.  I thought it turned out rather cute.  Her room is the same color green as in the paper.

Altered Paint Can

I out did myelf on this one.  I am so pleased with the way this turned out.  Both my grandaughters loved this can and want one like it.  I started with  plain paint can from Home Depot.  I covered it with two sided paper from Chatterbox.  I added a wide light aqua ribbon from JoAnns Fabrics and a bow.  I then added the pearl swirl from Hobby Lobby and flowers from Prima.  I sprayed the flowes with glimmer mist to get the turq. color and then sprayed them with pearl glimmer mist.  I added a turq. rhinestone brad to the center of the flowers..  The lid I did with the sdame paper and flowers and added pearl rope around the inside of the lid.

This month has gone by really fast.  I can't believe in two weeks Michelle and I and the kids will be going to Texas  We are so looking forward to it.  Tuesday AI had lunch with a good friend in Lafayette.  I swo enjoy her company.  We had a good time.  Anyway while Jeff was helping David with his boat I whipped up this clipboard for a good friend who has been having medical difficulities lately and I wanted to cheer her up.
