Altered 45

Hello! Welcome back to Toadally Love To Craft!
I have something a little different to share with you today. 

I told my Mom that I was going to alter a small record. 
She replied with "a 45?" Ummm....what the heck is a 45?!? 

Turns out, a 45 is a small record with a big hole in the center. 
It's bigger than a CD, but smaller than a vinyl record. 

Anyways, I slapped some Sugar Shoppe cardstock on both sides of this baby, added some flat back pearls, seam binding, lace, a few sweet treats and one TOADALLY adorable My Bestie....
AND VOILA! I now have a My Bestie wall hanging. 

The lace was originally white. I "died" it by spraying it with bubblegum pink dylusions ink spray. 
I often dye laces and seam binding this way.  

The sweet treats were cut out using my Cricut Explore and misc Cricut image sets.

Here's the link to this adorable My Bestie IMG120. I colored her with Copic markers and added a few highlights with a white gel pen. 

This was my first attempt at coloring hair like this. It turned out pretty darn good, thanks to the online coloring classes I have taken at Kit and Clowder.
