Blogger's Challenge #88: Alter it!

This was truly a challenge for me. When it comes to altering items, I CASE (copy and share everything) better than come up with my own project. But, I examined my items to be altered and found my 5 X 5 On Board Art Journal completely unchanged after way too long, I decided that it was about time!


I began by choosing my DSP (Designer Series Paper). I chose the Hand Drawn DSP from the Hand Drawn Bundle Level 3 Hostess set. What a great combo! I've tried the stamps, now the paper and next will be the Rub-ons!

I first thought about making a little birthday book but then thinking of a couple of pregnant women that I know are expecting little boys, I used them for my inspiration and went with more "boy" colors. I also got the Big Shot out and played with one of my favorite new items in the Spring Summer Catalog: TEXTURZ PLATES!!!

Be sure to see what the other players in this challenge are up to and please, play along, too!!! I'd love to see what you can alter and maybe you'll inspire me for my next project! (You can click on the Blogger's Challenge link on the side panel to see the other player's blogs!) Happy Friday!

Stamp sets: Just B, Nursery Necessities

Cardstock/Ink colors: Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Basic Gray and Baja Breeze Classic colors; Old Olive and Whisper White Craft Ink Pads
