Altered letters!!

Yup.. I think my mojo came back!! YAY!! I've managed to finish the altered (wooden) letters for my niece Demi that I had started working on last week! Perfectly for her new grown-up-girl room.. hehe... (you can click HERE to see the larger versions of the pictures)

I decided to use some of the yummie Luxe Design patterned papers that perfectly combine together (the colors are a little different in the pictures than IRL)
Here's a closer look at the different wooden letters which I've first covered with patterned paper and altered with different embellishments and ribbons....
I've used my Cuttlebug machine to emboss the patterned paper and to create all circles..
I've covered the clear button with some glitters and I've used my sewing machine to stitch without thread to create the holes along the borders... I've also added lots and lots of rhinestones all over the letter.
And.. yup.. couldn't resist to use some white Puffy paint on the letters as well.. hehe...
Our weekend has been really packed, besides having a BBQ with friends and throwing me an early birthday party, we've had my scrappy friend Stephanie from France coming over with her husband to spend 2 days together with us in The Netherlands. We've been real tourists during these past days...visiting windmills and Amsterdam.. (which was totally awesome BTW)!!! Time really went by too fast!!! And look what we found on our way.... GIANT wooden clogs... hehe....
Wishing you all a great week..and thanks for stopping by again!!

XOXO
Nancy

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
