Hi everyone Monica here and I know Halloween is approaching, but I wanted to share a tealight project I made. I thought it was a good night light for my friends little girl.  This was actually a birdhouse, but I turned it over and made a night light instead.  I used Snowflake Garland Marci.

Skin: E000, E00, E04, E11
Hair: E40, E42, E42, E44, E47
Dress: R35, R39
Shoes: E31, E33, E35

I added some string pearl and some tulle as added decor and I loved how it turned out.  Well I hope everyone enjoyed my post for today and thanks so much for stopping by and everyone have a safe Halloween!!

Altered Canvas

Friday, October 10, 2014
Hi everyone Monica here and  I am sharing and altered canvas piece along with a really super easy flower tutorial. To me you can never go wrong with a flower whether it be handmade or store bought ladies.  So, here is my finished piece using a picture of my beautiful niece as the focal point.
Supplies Needed:
1. Punch out a 5 petal flower and you want to cut between each petal
2.  Sand the edges of the flowers with a light grade sand paper

 It will look like this once your done and look or gorgeous this ends up looking, nice huh?!!
3. Take your tweezers and twist the paper around each petal
They end up looking like this
4. Now layer your flower pieces by staggering the each flower

5. Poke a hole through the middle  to push the stamens through and I use glue on my stamens so they stay put and are more sturdy
Look how gorgeous these are right?!

Closer look at the flowers
