My first altered tray

I've had my eye on these 7Gypsies trays for awhile, but never knew what I would do with one. Well, this year for Christmas I decided to bite the bullet and make a few.

This is one for my friend who is a huge Denver University Pioneers hockey fan. I go to all the games with her and her family and decided to pull some photos over the last season and use them on the tray. I also pulled some stuff from the game day magazines and used a couple ticket stubs.

I added some "gold dust" (Cream Soda pixie stick glitter in a 7Gypsies glass bottle) and a gold pan (that I got from an online jewelry retailer). The gold pan has significance because the Pios play in-state rivals, Colorado College Tigers, and the winner of the 4 game series wins a trophy of sorts, a gold pan. This is just a little something between the schools that gives extra meaning to their games. DU has held onto the pan for the last few years!

For my first tray, I like how it came out. I hope she likes it too!!
1 down and 2 more trays to go...
