Altered Bits and Pieces

I've been busy with all sorts of altered projects this past week! First off, I finally finished the Artist Trading Cards for the swap at LPS. This was the first time I've ever attempted ATCs, and I got a little nuts over the whole thing! The theme was Spring.

This next altered project idea came from Sandra's class on altered picture frames. I bought one of the $1 frames at Michael's and covered it with old Cosmo Cricket Halfway Cafe paper. I hope to give it to our neighbors, who just moved to another town. The photo is of our kids last summer.

We are in the middle of a fun contest at LPS called Ready, Set, Slow. The challenge for the first heat of the second round was to create a card kit, and then make two cards with it! This was my entry.

The final challenge was to scraplift something out of the gallery! I chose to lift Melissa's (whimsypic) elegant tags.

I've had fun with these projects, but now I'm itching to do some scrapbook layouts!! Luckily, I still have two kits from May that I haven't used at all, and my June kits are on their way!! I better get scrapping!
