Tiara Swap

I am so excited to show you all my latest creation!
Miss Holly Doodle had a Tiara/ Crown swap...
for those of you whom don't know what a swap is.....
get out of the dark ages!
Just kidding...

but seriously you are truely missing out!!!
Get with it!!!!
A swap is the next best thing to hmmmm... kitty whiskers!
Anyways, a swap is hosted by someone... any brave soul!
The host comes up with a great idea for a swap..
she collects names of those willing to join the "FUN"
You are given a partner to create something for
and to swap your creations!

This my friends is what I created for my dear partner Heidi....
Heidi and I both agreed we wanted a TIARA instead of a CROWN
A crown is more for a queen Mother!
We are both not old enough for that yet! {te-hee}
We are still PRINCESS' in training!
Ok Doll get to the pictures...
I know I know... I tend to babble!

On with the show

This first picture shows what the base of this Tiara is made from...
anaglyptic wallpaper! {thick texture that looks like tin ceiling}
I have some scraps from our old house so
I thought this would be a great sturdy base!

Ok I did PINK because...
Accented with rhinestones, and more rhinestones
buttons, buttons, buttons,

OH there is lots of glitter!
Can you see the delicate Lace around the bottom....

Oh and every PRINCESS needs a wand......
Don't you agree!
So I created a wand to match Heidis' Tiara!
Don't you love it????
complete with lots of ribbons and glitter
and rhinestones and more glitter!

Heidi......says she looooves her Tiara and feels like a PRINCESS!

Holly thank you for hosting a FUN swap!

Come back and I will show you

my TIARA that Heidi made for me!.....

I had fun making Maria's, and I love the one she sent me. I'm glad the Holly organized that for us all.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
