Happy Birthday To Sugar!

For all of y'all who have been following my blog y'all know that I did some altered CQ tins for a swap a few months back. As you know that as you are creating something the realization always kicks in and "HELLO" these really make GREAT gifts! This is one of those ideas. I figure my family will be getting one of these for Christmas. I know that my Grandmother will like hers. My sisters they act like it is not a big deal but...................I do notice that when they move whatever I make them usually moves in the first load.
Now for my best friend and her daughter. My best friend Michelle ALWAYS likes what I make her and is not afraid to let me know that these items make her day. She even shows them off to all her guests! Her daughter Sugar, well she is the same way. Actually she expects something hand made every year for her birthday. It really is a challenge to come up with something different every year.

This year I did a altered CQ tin for her. Complete with a fairy silkie. Sugar loves fairies. Everything that I do for her I put a fairy on it for her.

I had met up with her and Michelle at one of our favorite thrift stores and I Sugar pick out a tin that she liked. Sugar does have to be a little different and sometimes difficult! The tin that she picked out for me to fix for her birthday..........*SIGH*.............I had to go the drawing board and do some brain storming!

As you can see from the pictures I did not do too bad!

What did y'all think of this tin?????

Here is a picture of my sweet Sugar with her new decoration for her Fairy Palace room!

Lyn, you did a great job on the tin. It is so pretty. I really need to do one of these. I have plenty of tins, just never have taken the time to do one.
