Altered "A" on canvas, feat. Pink Paislee!!

Hello everyone!

Thanks for stopping by my blog for a peeksie! I've been MIA for a few days working on stuff and am ready to share one with you all!

My niece Alissa, Tony and Lisa's youngest, just had a birthday the beginning of January (so did their son...Jo-Jo's was the next day) so Happy Birthday to the both of you! I love you guys!.....but anyhow, I wanted to make Alissa something since she injured her leg and ankle like a week or two before playing b-ball! :( 
Poor girl, had surgery and got a cast put on....ouch! 
But knowing that her birthday was coming up, I grabbed 
an "A" at my LSS and decided to alter it for her....on a 12x12 canvas....CW was having a "Canvasmania" event where people can come to the store to create their own...well, they were taught....but I couldn't get out there for one, so I did one of my very 
own to gift away!

So, using PP's "Soiree" paper collection, which btw, isn't really my color at, I'm in love with it!! Totally would do this again...and will actually! Love the project...and I've already sent it out to Alissa! My Manny snapped a pic of her holding it while she's blowing me a kiss! Muah back mama!! She seemed like she liked it, hope you all do to!

In my video, I recorded myself playing with it and want to share that with you! If you have any questions, you can email me....or leave a comment...but remember, let me know how to contact you back. I get questions or a comment where I need to respond and no one leaves me an email address....silly people...anyhow, enjoy!

Here are some pics of my project....last minute additions...were some butterflies and some gorgeous cherry blossoms in yellow that center the 4 floral trim piece at the top.

Thanks for peeking guys!!
