Trying my hand at altering a bottle

Well Sunday was such a long day, hubby marched in his first Anzac Parade and to our good luck when we turned on tv and watched the coverage on ABC we saw him on tv, and what was great is that the camera man just kept zooming in on and him .
Hmmm that's maybe how he fell out of step but at least he had his army face on lol the kids went crazy saying that's daddy, of course Max comes out with wow mom dad looks fat on tv, I seriously do agree that tv adds pounds to you because my hubby is so not fat all....
So now of course all his men are calling him a celebrity and it's gone to his head.
Today I decided to try my hand at altering a little bottle I have seen these on blogs and have always wanted to have a go at altering one, so this is my first one..... I've used a little atc image, just a mixture of flower's a couple of charms and a few pearls for decoration....
I have to say I have been pretty good with sticking to my scrap budget unlike somebody I know lol, I haven't brought any paper in quite awhile which is weird.
But I really like hunting for vintage items like these I got from Beth's store at Gathering Dust, this is what I just snapped up yesterday. Some gorgeous metal ware, an old vintage ledger, and some french playing card's my favourite is the metal ware now what will I make with those hmmmmmm.....
