Altered Art

Last night I went to my local scrap and stamp store, Lasting Impressions, and this is what we made in class. Five minutes before I was to be out the door, I ran downstairs and looked through my altered art box and found all these lovely items. The beads were left over from my sister's bedroom curtains she had made. The key came from a scrapbook package (sorry, I threw out the packaging), and the butterflies came from my favourite flea market, "Pete's." Tucked inside are twelve little index cards I made with scrapbook paper and tabs. I'm thinking this would be an excellent box to hold monthly birthday reminders. I purchased three more boxes to alter for Christmas presents, and I'll show you those when I have them finished. Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.
