Club Scrap Lock and Key Blog Hop!!!

   So I am taking a brief hiatus from my paper dresses. Although my plan is to complete, "2013 A Year of Club Scrap Dresses". I am not sure when it will happen or what my plan will then be for 2014 but that is all for another time.
    I have been working on handmade Christmas gifts. This weekend I made two gifts for my niece. The first one is a retreat project so I can not share it yet. The second is this: 




  My niece is obsessed with keys. She loves anything with keys. Jewelry, clothes, you name it. So when I found the key in Hobby Lobby a few months ago I knew she would love it and I planned to decorate it for her for Christmas. How perfect it was when I got the Club Scrap Lock and Key kit.

   I started by painting the key with black acrylic. Then covered it with the AMAZING teal print. I sanded the edges and inked them with Club Scrap India ink.

Then I added some Club Scrap ribbon and beads from my stash and the adorable metal keys from the kit. 
   I am so excited to have gotten a few Christmas gifts made but it going to be a challenge waiting so long to give them!
    Your next stop on the hop is Anne over at http://crzymomstidbits.blogspot.com/
If you missed the start of the Club Scrap Hop head to CS Creates to start from the beginning!
Wishing you a wonderfully creative day!

I love that you are starting your Christmas presents early. I am so far behind, I'm not sure I'll ever catch up! I love that teal paper, too, and was a little sad that my project used up most of it. I think I need some more...
