Rockin' Mirror

I did something that I am proud of!
I found this cute scalloped edge mirror at Michael's a week or so ago and just knew that for $1.00, yes I said $1.00, I needed it! It is good sized, about 12 inches tall by 8 inches wide and it was white, made by Provo.

My daughter loves pink and black and loves mirrors...if I were a size 2 I'd love them too but that's another story for another day...back to the brilliant moment I had...

I thought that I would cover it and fancy it up for her. At first I figured I would just stamp in it cause that's what I know how to do, stamp. I can barely even cover a tiny piece of chipboard with cardstock so I figured I could never cover this mirror with all its edges and corners and stuff, right??
But then I figured for $1.00 what would it hurt if I messed it up, and it would be good practice!
I went to Michaels in search of the perfect cardstock for my daughter to cover her mirror and found this AWESOME Mat Stack by DCWV called "Rock Queen", if that wasnt perfect nothing was, so I got it and this is what I did with it tonight:

I actually covered the mirror and did a darn good job doing it, too! I just glued the cardstock on randomly and cut around the edges and then sanded it and sponged black ink on all the edges and then sealed it wit the most fab Modge Podge ever "Sparkle" Mod Podge. You cant tell but it is pretty sparkly and my daughter loves it, she was in awe of me, isnt that a fun feeling???

I added the embellishments to match it, the top one says "Celebrity" and the bottom little one is a skull that matches the cardstock perfectly!

I feel so brave and proud of myself. Sorry if this seems crazy but I was very intimidated by this little project and now I feel like I can just do anything...scrapbooking here I come!!!

Have a good one;)
