Alter Something for Challenge 8 at Crafting with Dragonflies.

Time for our next Challenge over at

Crafting With Dragonflies Challenge Blog

We don't want you to get into a rut and just make cards for our challenges 
so this time we are asking you to 


Our sponsors for this challenge are

Time to get your thinking caps on. 
There are a gazillions ideas that you could use and I am sure there are
plenty of items around the house that need a little attention
to spruce them up and become masterpieces.

So what are you waiting for?
oh some inspiration from the Design Team!
I was fortunate to get a coloured digi (New Rose Vintage Photo)
 from one of our sponsors Crafts and Me
and because I was so lucky I decided to alter a few items 
we all have near our computer or office.

Here is what I started with

a container I received when I purchased some pens.

a notebook for jotting down 'important notes'

an acrylic frame and post it notes for reminders.


I covered the pen case in designer paper my digi image
some ribbon punched flowers 
and a pen tag.

 My Notebook I covered with different paper 
followed by distressed designer papers
lace and digi image and added some 
gloss to the flowers.

Here is a close up view.

and finished off my projects with some designer paper
at the back of my acrylic frame then
added my digi image and note tag
and adhering the sticky notes to the front.

 The finished Items.

Now it is your turn to have a bit of fun.

But don't forget to pop in to my other Design Teamies 
to see what they have altered too

I look forward to seeing what you find around your house 
for items you can alter.

Thanks for stopping by

I love the torn paper on your notebook cover with your vintage image. But my favorite is the post-it note holder, way too cool! A perfect desk set!
