TSC18: Vintage Cigar Box

I recently had a hankering on for some altered art, so I opted to alter this unfinished cigar box and figured it was the opportune time to create my Design Team sample for the current "Vintage" themed challenge over at The Stampsmith Challenge.

Here's a close up of the beautiful, Audrey, all blinged up, on the top of the cigar box.

Just to show you how the box opens.
I hope you decide to join us this time around. It's fun to play along for a chance to win some goodies from the lovely, Estelle, at The Stampsmith. Please include at least one image from The Stampsmith on your card or project. A random winner will be chosen on Aug. 1st. I look forward to seeing all your projects! :)

For those of you who like to read about my personal life, as's an update. We just got back from a great, but short vacation with the family. I'll post a few pics soon. The kids were with my parents this week, we picked them up tonight. Nice to have them home again. Pretty quiet around here without them, but we had lots to do along with working all day. Not much freedom to just relax! My broken ankle is a bit better. Still waiting to get into the Orthopedic surgeon to have the broken piece of bone removed, though. Yeah, I know, it sounds gross and I'm not looking forward to it. But, it should heal quickly after the surgery and besides, I have no choice, the sprain just won't heal since the piece of bone continues to aggravate it. I think if anyone has anti-luck, it's me! lol :) I'll be back soon with another project to show you.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
