And this week the challenge is Show us Your Hat,
we would like you to make or alter a Hat or a Bonnet with whatever you would like to alter or create on it. I am very curious so come on over and do join in cause you can win a fabulous prize generously sponsored by Simon Says Stamp...

Check this out isn't it fabulous????

Oke here we go......
I had a really hard time to get started with the challenge cause I was thinking I don't have a hat that I can alter.....But.....I have a very sweet friend who gave me a push in the right direction....so I made a Top Hat for a Bride. I have used a tutorial from a Top Hat....and I had a very nice looking bride given to me by my Mother in Law....sooooo this is what I did....
Such a sad looking Bride......LOL....so I just had to do something about it eh?
So this is before.......the makeover.....
 The Bride was holding a "white" flower, but I thought no way so I played with the Distress inks and made the rose look old.....the red roses replaced the bicycle tires flowers that were first there.
The hat is worked on with the Graphic 45 paperpad, Steampunk Debutante, distressed with Vintage Photo, Victorian Velvet and Fired Brick.
The flowers are from The Tim Holtz Tattered Florals and from the EK Succes Retro Flower Punch, the lace is worked on with distress inks and the butterfly is also from a punch. 
And here is my finished project for this weeks challenge .....
And I have an after the make over picture too....

So what do you think???? she's a happy Bride now eh?
Sorry for the bad picci.....but this is what the Bride looks like now...so you can see from upclose what she is made off......yep you better believe it, she is made out of tires from a bicycle......pretty special eh? And that's it for me for now......

You should really check out the

If you had put those red roses up a bit higher...could have been some interesting comments! haha Leave it to me to point THAT out to you! :) At any rate...she is darling and the HAT is wonderful!
