Blogger's Challenge #145: Alter It!


This week's challenge was to alter an item.  I found 7 of these frames at our Walmart on the clearance endcap for $.33...that's right!  Thirty-three cents!!!
I took the Flight of the Butterfly stamp and used Tempting Turquoise, Lavender Lace, Almost Amethyst, and Certainly Celery to create this fun spring decor item.  I also broke out my Big Shot and my Simple Letters Bigz die to die cut the letters.  (Remember that Lavendar Lace and Almost Amethyst are the Fond Farewell retiring colors list so get them while they're hot!)
I was inspired by a card I saw on a blog by Leanne Pugliese.  I can't find her blog addy right now but her blog is called Wee Inklings, I believe. 
Please take some time to see what the other Blogger's challenge players altered this week!

Very clever idea -- I've always wanted to try this and actually pulled out a frame -- drew a blank. Now, I'm going back and try to come up with something Springy like this!
