CPS #225 Sketch Challenge- And an altered rotary phone...

This week's sketch at Card Positioning Systems is a fun one and I made it more fun with an altered project to match the card.

My 12 year old niece went with us to a flea market recently and discovered a rotary phone... something she had never seen before.  She loved it and wanted one.  We found her one but it was a bit beat up so I altered it a little to jazz it up.  She absolutely loves it (and the matching earrings I made) and the coolest part is that the phone still works.  They called me from it to say hello today!  I love to make those kids happy!

Here's the card:
Here's the altered rotary phone.  You wouldn't believe how heavy it is or how long it takes to actually dial a number!  ha ha
And here are the earrings I made her.
No excuse not to get phone calls from her now!  ha ha
