U is for umbrella

Letter U

....is this weeks Alpha challenge
over at
I chose the word
Umbrella
(not very Unique I know!)...
from  my old dictionary
Just like last week...where my Printers Tray only has 24 compartments....I also added this weeks challenge outside of the cubbies....
-oOo-

I've altered  another microscope slide with a vintage image and my dictionary word and definition in the background. I've created a little umbrella from velvet, lace, wire and ribbon and added a little lacy butterfly.
-oOo-
Off to take a peek now to see what everyone else is doing with the  letter 'U'.
 
Thanks for peeking!

  5. Fantastic! I love these added to the outsides of your tray. They're going to give your finished tray just the right bit of extra character.
