Project: Blinged Converse & a birthday sneak peek

So I've seen blinged converse all over on different websites and I wanted to get some for the girls, but I was not willing to spend $50.  So I decided I'd make my own. Kaylee got red converse as a gift and I just bought Keira her first pair ($24).  We made the trip to Michael's to get some crystals ($1.99).

I bought one box of crystals containing 115 pieces thinking that that would be enough for both pair of the girls shoes.  I was wrong.  It took 2 boxes for both pair of shoes.  But the shoes turned out PERFECT and  wasn't expensive.  Now I'm thinking Kaylee needs a black pair.

Aren't they so cute!?!
Hot glue gunning all those little crystals did take me about 20 minutes per shoe.
I love the way they turned out.  Keira has 2 different kinds of ribbon shoe laces, one for family pictures and one that matches with her birthday dress.

Here's a sneak peek at a party decoration for Keira's party.
I saw the bee footprint on pinterest (of course) and decided to make a cute sign.
She did such a good job when it came time to paint her feet and put it on the canvas.

What do you think?!
