Blingy Sparkly Wedding Shoes

Tonight I did something kinda fun and girlie. I decorated my wedding shoes! :D

Ooooh Aaaahhhhhh!

You see, we've decided that this wedding is not going to cost very much money. It's going to be a chance to stand up in front of our friends and family and declare our love, but it's not going to cost a whole heckuva lot.

So, when I saw these shoes in the window with a price tag of over $100, I knew that they were not the shoes for me. That and the heels. I was never a girl that could walk comfortably, or even half steadily in heels.

I went to the store next to the one I found these in and bought my shoes for $19.50. They even had my ridiculous size (5 and a half) Yay! And now to decorate them to look like the ones above - minus the hooker vibe of course *wink*

All I needed was a glue gun, some pretty mirrored beads and my $19.50 shoes. (Those beads were on sale 2 packages for $5.00)

I grabbed my shoe and a package of beads and planned out how they would go. Then I got to gluing. Maybe another instance of ghetto-crafting? Perhaps - but who can argue with this price tag eh?

And they look sparkly! Lane followed me around trying to touch them for awhile. I stood still and let her admire them. She giggled and touched them very carefully. It must be a girl thing! Although I must admit, Terry did tell me that my new shoes looked like glass slippers form Cinderella. I'm guessing that's pretty good!

Linking these pretties up with this fabulous opportunity to share my work with other creative crafters!
