Quixotic Challenge - Alter It!

Good afternoon...I hope this week is treating you well!

We are enjoying our last week of summer holidays in Scotland, with the children going back to school a week today. I am usually quite organised and have everything ready and labelled and packed but this year for some reason I still have lots of things on my to do list for school. Better get cracking!

Anyway, onto the business of the day!

This week for the Quixotic Challenges, Rowena has set us a theme of Alter It! I was quite happy with this one as a few weeks ago I bought several items from the 'Alterable Items' section in the Quixotic Paperie. So now I just had to get on with the job of altering!!

I ahve really been wanting to put some altered items into my Etsy and Folksy stores so it will be appearing in them shortly!

I bought this great door hanger(which is out of stock at the moment but Elaine assures me that it will be back in stock soon), sanded the edges just a little and painted it with white acrylic paint. I then used the Echo Park papers to cover most of the front of the card.
I thought this fab image from Mo Manning (at Quixotic Paperie) called 'Angelina's Balloon's', would suit the front perfectly for a little girl's bedroom. The lettering is America Craft Chipboard Thickers. The flower are from my stash and the gorgeous centre is from Prima.
I hope you will have time to alter something this week and join us.

Back soon friends!
