Altered Vintage Suitcase

I know it's been a little bit since I've blogged but life gets in the way and I had a couple of projects I was involved with but I had to show this little beauty! I picked it up in an antique shop where I live for $1.00 ! I am going to post the after picture of what I did to it tomorrow. I tried to post last night but Blogger was having a fit and I was unable to post , or save  NOTHING ! I was so aggravated that I gave up . So I am hoping this goes well today !  I will tell you that I used Tim Holts Vagabond with his Tattered Flowers Die and some hand-made resin pieces that were suppose to be earrings ! I turned them into charms.
My sweet hubby gave me the idea! How cool is that !? Ok! so look for the new pic's tomorrow I still have a lot to learn about taking pictures and this blogging stuff is still very new to me but I'll get there!
Have a great week-end and make something !!

Well about 2 months ago I mentioned a vintage suitcase I had found at our local antique store . This is the before and I am going to post the after tomorrow. I completely altered this suitcase and I think it's way cool !
I was planning on using it to display my jewelry when I attended 1st Friday's and it turned out better then I expected! I can't wait to show you the after pictures. I used my Vagabond, by Tim Holtz and used his Tattered Flowers Die ,that's all I am going to say about that ,you're going to have to wait until tomorrow!

I know it's been a little bit since I've posted and I have really wanted to but life got in the way! I really need to make a stronger commitment to creating every day, but alas, I have a full time job and the house has to get clean right??

Anyways, I am really going to buckle down and fly right! Besides, I still have so much more to learn about blogging ! It's really so much fun !!
