Blogger's Challenge: Alter It





It's Friday!  Finally!!  And it's Blogger's Challenge today and we are to alter something.  I didn't have much time to stamp this week with the Olympics going on and my addiction to watching them like millions of others.

I had to pull something out of the archives but luckily I have something to share.  I'm not much into altering things-as a matter of fact, I just purged a ton of stuff out of my studio that I had bought to alter and they have been in here forever.

This is an altered clothes-pin that I used as a recipe holder.  I combined some of my favorite papers from Simple Stories and adhered the papers using some Scor-tape.  I had to squeeze my writing onto one of the cards to create my recipe card, but man, I can't wait to try this one...think it will be a good one for some easy holiday gifts.


Hope you will join us over at Blogger's Challenge and show us how you alter it.
