Challenge #9 - ALTERATIONS

Good Morning Ladies....we're almost at the weekend now which means it's another "Stampin' for the Weekend" for you all, and after last week's wonderful entries of masking, it's time for another fun and exciting challenge.

This week we'd like to see you "ALTER" something, either something you already have in the home, or something you've bought specifically to alter, and you've got one full week to complete it, whether it be a book, a calendar, a tin, jar, clipboard, plastic container of some sort......anything your heart desires and decorate it to spruce it up a little or a lot. Our wonderful and creative design team have come up with some "smashing" items for a bit of inspiration for you all. We've altered books, drawers, tins, candles, bags, picture frames, jars and calendars.

This week we have a new sponsor, it's Susie from Die Cut Dreams. Susie has some of the most wonderful and amazing die cuts, anything from frames, fashion items, babies and animals. I love the bears she has, and she also does some fabulous chalking on them. So for this week, Susie is offering the winner a selection of some of her die cuts.
Here is just a small selection of what the "winner" will be receiving.

For her second and last week here we have the wonderful Suzie who has altered this beautiful tin. Check out her blog for details on how she's done it. We'd also like to thank Suzie for the two most wonderful creations she's come up with in the last two weeks. It's been fabulous having you as part of our team.

  6. Working on the theory that every time we fold a piece of card or stamp onto it we are altering it anything we make qualifes for this :0 On the other hand using a jar lid to make a start on a new wall hanging is probably more what you had in mind. This was good fun.
