The Hat that Refused to be Photographed....


This is the story of a little chipboard hat named Hattie that was living her life quietly at Craft Warehouse until one day a questionable woman came in, swooped up her up and promptly relocated her.  Poor Hattie had to live on a craft table for almost a week! She decided that it hadn't been so bad the day the woman came in and started ripping up paper and gluing it to her. Hattie was shocked! Eventually the woman finished and left Hattie alone for a time... but then... she came back! With ribbon and die cuts and tulle. And if that wasn't enough she ripped the back off a frame (that sent a shudder through poor Hattie's heart!) and took it outside and spray painted it black.  After much fussing Hattie was finished ~ dressed in her finery for Halloween. 

The woman is beginning to think that Hattie isn't too fond of all the changes she has had to endure. This revelation came after at least twenty photo of Hattie came out blurred or just plain weird looking.   Hattie blames it on the tulle of course ~ she says if the woman wouldn't have smothered her in it she would take a phenomenal photo.  I'm not so sure....

So to make up for the less than fabulous photo's a freebie sentiment located below. :)


This project is entered in the following challenges:
