Birthday Coasters

There's a new challenge this week at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog!!!  The challenge?  Altered Items!  Now, I have to tell you a little back story to my project today.  My 7 year old daughter loves almost everything I make.  I'll find her quietly stroking a card or gazing at an object on the wall.  When my mother buys my cards, sometimes my 7 year old cries.  Last week this happened.  When I asked her what was wrong, she said, "It's just so hard to let some of these go!"  How cute is that!  So I wanted to make her something that was just for her.  I'll never sell it or give it away, because it is just for her.  When she opened it for her birthday, she squealed!  It was by far her favourite gift!  That makes me feel so good!

Now, on to the project.  I used chipboard 4x4 coasters and linked them together using Idea-ology Jump Rings.  All of the die cuts are Grungeboard (the wings are textured Grungeboard).  The dark pink grungeboard is inked with Purely Pomegranate ink.  The turquoise grungeboard was spritzed with Caribbean Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  The green is Apple Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.  My daughter is huge on glam, so I added some Doodlebug Chunky Glitter, Turquoise Stickles, Lime Green Stickles, Pearl Glimmer Mist, and Crystal Stickles over various pieces.

Oh Hannah! Your post got me a little in the teary-eyed department!
The way you wrote "I'll never sell or give this one away" just makes it SUCH a special project!!
I would imagine she has this displayed in her favorite spot and will cherish it for a LONG time!!
So special!!!
