Altering My "Old" Suitcase

Here is the vintage suitcase I bought while on my Arizona shopping spree...full of lots of goodies I also HAD to purchase....hehe!
In AZ, Lilia had a gorgeous suitcase that held all of her class kits and supplies. She inspired me to alter one of my own!

Here is a front and back view of my finished project! I used a little girl photo of myself "holding" two of my digi kits. I used pink spray paint and then layered deeper pink and white acrylic paints. The bird is from another digi kit, and the words are from an old school reader. I applied Mod Podge after painting. For a finishing touch, I added some of the trim that I found at the incredible AZ store called SAS.
