Smeareds and Smudged Member Blog Hop (July)

 Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Smeared and Smudged Member  Blog Hop (July).  Hope you are having a FAB time!  If you have arrived from the very talented Ike's blog then you are on the right track, if not, then hop on over to Terra's  blog here to start from the beginning.

The challenge for the hop was to alter something/anything 3D.  This is my very first attempt at altering an object and I really enjoyed working on it.  So here it is......... I warn you there are lots of photo's

In case you couldn't tell ..... its a Candle,  I have used Simply Betty Steampunk Romance digi images around the sides and decorated with lace, ribbons and roses.  The candle holder is glass decorated with punched (Martha Stewart Wrought Iron), card and velvet ribbon.

Now it's time for you to hop over to Lady Brayton's blog here and see what delights she has in store for you.

Here is the full hop list in case you get lost

I would like to enter this candle in the following challenge(s)

Off you go and have fun!!!
Take Care
