Brown and Blue Design Team Post!

Well my bloggy friends, for my latest DT post I decided to step out side my box.  The theme was to create something using brown and blue.  I choose an altered item for my project.  I have a lot of pictures to go with this prject, so bare with me!!  This is also my first crack at something other then a layout or card.  I took a "wally world" juice container and spruced it up a bit to make this super cute pen holder.  

I used a lot of different elements to create this project.   First off,  the paper is by Collage Press-The Jackson Lodge collection.  I used my ITOP by Imaginisce for the fabric brad centers of the flowers.  The flowers were made with the new Cricut cartridge Flower shoppe! I love it! So many great designs!!  I also threw in some ribbon and twine for the trim. 

To create the top I used my super cool (or should I day HOT!!) IROCK! 
 I used my stencils and the corresponding bling to make the spiral pattern.
So here is a view from the top of the finished project!  I hope you enjoyed it!!
