CCC #9 Alter Me!

Hello and good morning! How are you today?! Doing wonderful, I hope! I have been busy, busy, busy!!

I wanted to stop by and share my project for our latest Crafty Critter Challenge. The challenge was thrown out there by Colleen (Hiya Colleen!!)! She proposed a good one! The particulars were:

Challenge rules:
--create/alter any item (maybe a favorite thing to make?) - card, box, picture frame, etc.
--use YOUR favorites - colors, embellishments, stamps - you get the idea
--must be posted to your blog no earlier than August 1st and no later than August 5th with the label CCC9

So, after much debate and narrowing down of favorite projects I went with this:

This is what my project was before I did my alter and this is what it grew up to be:

I made a dry erase board using flowers as the theme! I mixed several different types and colors of those little guys! I stamped my image on SU! Whisper White and then sponged the edges with SU! Marigold Morning and More Mustard. I faux stitched the edges of my white and green (SU Certainly Celery) and mounted those on DSP. I added some flowers with bright, happy brads and a sparkly gem in the center of the stamped flower! I attached the pen with a ribbon and fun flower! There you have it...all atered! These work great as dry erase boards and are fun because you can change the insert at any time!

Thanks for a great challenge, Colleen! I had a blast with this one! :)

I have been in high production mode lately and have lots more to share! I will be back soonest!

Until then...have a super day!
