Happy Birthday Raelynn

Happy Pink Saturday....I didn't have a chance to load pictures of the pink project I am working on. I apologize, I am having some issues from the surgery I had 3 weeks ago. I hope to be feeling better soon. In the meantime, please enjoy my most recent post:

Today is my Granddaughter Raelynn's 4th Birthday. I really wanted to make something special for her. I found an old jewelry box at the thrift store, and decided it was the perfect candidate for a makeover. I covered it with vintage wallpaper, trimmed it with vintage trim, and put a velvet flower on top. I added a pink and cream crepe paper ruffle to the bottom of the box.
I love the ballerina that twirls when the box is opened.
The inside was beat up and dirty, so I took it apart, and recovered it in pink satin.
(I even added a few blingy jewelry pieces)
It was such a fun project to make for this sweet little angel......I'm gonna be sad to see it go!!
Have a lovely day.
xxoo Valarie
