Life is Beauty-Full -- Glitz Design :)

Hi everyone! 

 Our latest challenge is live on the LESSology blog and this time we want to see you incorporate bottle caps!! :) 


I had these old wood blocks that I found at an antique store :) 



I covered them in Glitz Design papers and then glued them together to make a photo block :)



I had a large bottle cap from Maya Road and painted the edges a bronze color to match my papers and the antique feel of the blocks :)

I  then poked a hole through the bottle cap and added a wire that I twisted into a swirl pattern to hold a photo :) 

I glued it all onto the top of the blocks :)













Can't wait to see what you create for this challenge :)  



Our prize for this challenge is from  My Mind's Eye!!! The "Kate and Co. Cambridge Court" Paper Kit!!!




And that little girl in the photo on my project above???? Yep ... Miss Brookie ... wellllllll today she is headed back to school for her FIRST GRADE year!!! YIKES!!! I am a nervous wreck! I am sure I will cry today!!! :)

Here she is on Monday for meet the teacher night :)






Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
