My Gorgeous Shoe from Carrie!

My friend, Carrie Elmore, made this and had no idea what she was going to do with it.  Really?  Like she thought I, who collect shoes, wouldn't absolutely love it!  She made it several months ago and today was the first time we've had a chance to meet up so she could present it to me.

We enjoyed some old fashioned hamburgers at the local diner and tried to catch up on what's been going on in our lives.  Honestly, I jabbered so much that I'd eaten my entire chili cheeseburger before I even realized it!  Of course I had to show off the shoe to the girls who work in the diner.  Everyone thought it was super cute!

Carrie said she painted a black pump with acrylic paint and then added all the embellishments.  There's even a set of lights inside the shoe!

 There's a strip of satin leaves adhered along the sole and pink trim inside the shoe.
 Now I have my own fairy godmother to sit beside me while I make my cards!  She'll be next to a little sign I already own that says "One shoe can change your life".....Cinderella.
 There's a lot of bling on each side of the shoe too.  (Imagine Carrie putting bling on something! lol!)
 The pink bow on the heel reminds of of the one on Eyore's tail---from Winnie the Pooh!  She even put some bling on the heel!
Thank you again, Carrie for letting me have your wonderful creation to add to my shoe collection.  It's definitely one of a kind and I absolutely love it!  (And when I showed it to Fred, even he admitted it was "cute" without doing an eye roll!)
