If you have been following my blog you will  have seen a couple of other paper mache purses I decorated. I posted a picture of them on facebook and a very good friend of mine Patti saw them and fell in love. She asked for one in hot pink. She loves tattoos and skulls, flames etc, so I went all out on this one. I still have glitter on me lol. So does hubby, hes not happy about that lol.

I adore this acrylic flowers
The Tim Holtz metal sentiment says "the journey awakens the soul"

I took a Tim Holtz grunge board skull and glittered the heck out of it, I added some jewels in the eyes.

I embossed this skull, its another grungeboard one. Then I added some glass glitter on top of the embossing. The black heart is also grungeboard, I added black glitter to it, then put a blingy skull on it and another on the flower, below. The pink skull is right in the middle of a lace bow.

The paper flowers are my favorite. I got 144 of these for less than 7 bucks on ebay, no shipping and handling, how is that for a deal.

I added some charms.

My sister in law EO added the flames to the sides, she outlined them with red stickles.

I love love love this paper that I lined the inside with, its from Studio 112. I then edged it with crocheted lace.
