Got back from Kansas City yesterday.  We had a great time and found lots of goodies.  I was going to share photos of the trip and stuff we found but.........I forgot my camera at my sister's house, Ugh!   Debbie made both of us a great travel journal.  When I get my camera back I will show you that as well. 

The week before we left I worked on a gift for sis.  The day we left was her birthday.  This is what I came up with.  Found the picture and thought she looked so elegant, I tried to keep with that  thought.

I altered this little bottle.  Used a piece of  the Graphics 45 Steampunk paper for the picture and added some pretty blue ribbon and a tiny bit of bling. 

Everyone have a wonderful Mother's Day.

Jackie this is a very beautiful collage - I love all of the earthy toned fabrics and the lovely background. Embellished so beautifully with laces, doiley pieces and glove enhancing the gorgeous image.

Great gift for sis and the altered bottle is fab! Don't u love making things with bottles? I can hardly pass up bottles when I thrift...they are so versatile and hey, everyone can use a gift made from a bottle! Thanx for sharing! tiffany

Your collage is just gorgeous! What a great gift for your sister. I think hand created treasures are so much more fun than "store bought" gifts! And I love your altered bottle, too. I just made my first one, and it was so much fun! Thanks so much for your nice comments, and for following, too:)
