'Sometimes A Girl Just Has to Bee'

I always have great fun with these

I seem to be on a roll with them!
Using a vintage metal candle stick as the base,
And adding Graphics45 
wonderful papers from

and using Crafters Workshop
Template 'chicken wire' to
cover the Body Form with,
a bit of 'fudging' with some
pens to create a 'bee hive' effect,
and a few brass charms,

and Walla!

Another 'Girl' to add to my 
ever growing Collection!
