In Loving memory of my Dad

I made this special tribute to my wonderful Dad ( My Hero) I used a kit I got by K&company "Navy" I took a very old photo of my dad back from the 1940's when he was about 18yrs old and in the United States Navy, He served in WWII and was a gunners mate.

♥ ♥ ♥ Altered wooden Heart box ♥ ♥ ♥

Altered wooden Heart box I took this cute little Wooden Heart box and glued some stripped paper on it. On the lid I added a print style paper and added a bright yellow ribbon around the top side. On the very top of this heart I added a paper doily and then I crocheted some flowers ( I will use them on future projects) and glued one of them on the top of this heart top. I finished it off with a Yellow butter fly and put a tiny white pearl on it. I hope you liked my little project I just love altering things and this is just perfect for our Grand daughter Gracie and her Hair things. thank you for visiting my blog please come again and do leave a comment and I would love you to become one of my followers. ~ God Bless ~ ♥ ♥ ♥ Hugs :o) ♥ ♥ ♥ Dottie {I added a picture of The room we have For our Gracie when she stays with us a few times a week}
