A Key Can Open Many Doors...

The Cranky Queen participated in a key swap over at Tee's blog Creations By Tee.  The Queen had to alter 2 keys for two different ladies.  She wanted to create something very different & unusual.  After much thought, she decided upon a book mark as the 1st gift.  What do you think?
The key was sewn on an old man's tie.Vintage buttons & jewels were added.
A more colorful tie was attached for the bookmark tail & black vintage buckle & buttons were used for extra details!
Prayer is the key to Heaven, but faith unlocks the door." 
 The second altered key creation was a necklace.  The Queen used a vintage button, watch face, rhinestone strands & buttons....She attached the key to a shiny & silky ribbon. Every lady needs a little royal bling!
Well, what do you think? Hope my swap partners will love my "royal"altered keys...Check out Tee's blog for monthly fun swaps...you get to meet some neat bloggers and have fun too! "Continuous effort~not strength or intelligence~is the key to unlocking our potential."
