Elizabeth - 4 months



I have a friend who lost a brother last year, and holds events for D.A.R.E. and she has a silent auction at these events. Another friend of mine and I went together to create some things for our friend's auction. She made the cards and I made the recipe box. So, sorry but here's another box! LOL!

These eyeglasses were made for a Crafty Secrets challenge on SCS that had to do w/ masquerades. Well, I don't think that I own any masks, and I didn't think that those ladies would appreciate the masking technique for this particular challenge! I think I'm the only one that thought that was funny.... Anyway, so I took a pair of Olivia's sunglasses that I knew she wouldn't mind "sharing" w/ her momma! She told me herself that that would be fine if I took that pair. She still has all the princesses sunglasses, so I think she's good! LOL! Anyway, I used my son's black paint from another project to paint these once pink glasses! I stamped the cobwebs onto acetate and then cut them out! The cobwebs are from Halloween Fun from Crafty Secrets. The ribbon is from the Halloween bundle from MFT. The long "arm" of the glasses is from a Party Lite thing that I will never use. So, I put it to good use! I put Prima flowers in the corners to dress them up and hide all the tape and glue that is holding that "arm" in place! I put bat brads in the corner flowers to draw attention to that detail than to what the flowers are hiding.

And a closeup!
Well kids, that's all! I'm whipped! Seems like I've been doing Halloween all week!
