Gifts for my Secret Sis...

A heart in love with beauty never grows old. -Turkish Proverb

At the LOSTie Retreat I went to early this month we were lucky enough to open out LOSTie Secret Sister gifts together!!! What a blast!!! My Little Sis was Alyson and she is a BIG Sawyer fan ;) So, the first thing I made for her was this, I am not a Huge Sawyer girl myself, but he is HOT in this pic!!!!!

I covered the frame with Octomer Afternoon paper and added some ribbon and Prima Flowers...

Alyson has 2 Adorable little I put together a 7 Gypsies Bracelet for her...they have been discontinued from 7 Gypsies line of products...if anyone knows where to get the blank ones can you let me know?????

I altered an old box I found at the Michael's $1 area and made a new top for it...this is what I packaged the bracelet in.

And...last but not least, my requisite letter :) I have given almost every one of my Little Ssters one of these...this one I covered with more of the October Afternoon paper and then, while the Mod Podge was still wet on the top layer I poured loose glitter over it...after it dried I added some big Prima Flowers and a Say it With Crystals Center...

To round it all out I made a matching card to put in her package and let her know who her Big Sis was...

Stamps: Three in a Tree (Inka,) Sweet Friend (a muse)
Paper: October Afternoon Freshly Mown Lawn
Ink: Copic Caios, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive
Misc: Loose Glitter, Mod Podge, Dew Drops, Brads, Prima Flowers, Say it With Crystals Centers, Ribbon, Blank Bracelet Kit (Antique Silver)
