I had a hard time with this challenge... a bazillion trips to the thrift stores and no inspiration to think of! Tons of ugly stuff, but nothing that jumped out and said "give me a makeover" you know  Undecided. So to be honest, I almost gave up..

Then I was doing laundry one day and it hit me! I had just what I needed sitting under my nose the whole time!

To briefly explain -  I'm a Flight Attendant, and have in my possesion at any given time a boat load of used Magazines that get left behind on the planes. We pass them around to each other so some of these are even 3rd or 4th hand. Now I know your thinking "and what is so ugly about a magazine?" Well I just so happen to have the tabloid stash...and guess who graces every single one?



Ms. Britney Spears.


And you can not tell me that you can get any uglier than what that girls life has become.

So I said "Brit Brit lets turn this mess around and bring you back to your former glory!"

I took all of the ugliness in her life that I could find and laid it out...



And with what I saw decided that this girl was in SERIOUS need of a life coach and some counseling. Panties wouldn't hurt either but we will get to those later. So I called in the best help that money could buy. And with their assistance stepped in and took her life apart....



After some very intense moments and amazing break throughs, started getting her back into superstar form..



Then I weeded out all of the enablers and unsavory characters that are always around...



Sent her in to see a team of makeover specialists....



3 types of mod podge, 4 types of glitter, some rhinestones and micro beads later....



I give you the one, the only, fabulous MS. BRITNEY SPEARS!!!!!

Very clever!  I love the finished project, and yeah, you are right, the beginnings are ugly.  Poor Brit.  Great job, and I loved your in process descriptions!
