Altering...Again!

here are a few projects i did at the crop this weekend over at Citrus Tree Studios. I really love hanging out overe there..it is really relaxed and it is so fun. And i ended up winning the gradn prize! can you believe it? cindy is so generous...she gave a way a mini Clip it up! woot woot!

i used some BoBunny Birthday papers on here and I added tons of Glimmer Mists and colorwashes to the crepe paper to get it to match the papers. i love all the greens and yellows so i accented the hat with some Yellow Art Institute glitter.

he actually stands on the button!



We got some Clear Scraps in a product trade with Core'dinations and I used one of the ornaments on this altered frame. I heat embossed on it with my {fave} beeswax stamp.


I sprayed the frame with Glimmer Mists and Colorwashes and then added a crackle medium to allow the colors to show through. I used my Cuttlebug, Core'dinations and BoBunny goodies on here.

LOVED everything that you created this weekend! Congrats on the Grand Prize! I took a little break from the boards for a couple of months to do some other projects and then my blog collapsed so that made me loose interest for awhile but I'm back now!! Thanks for missing me:) I always love looking at your stuff too!
P.S. I have no idea how to back up your blog but you may want to check into blurb.com where you can turn your blog into a book. Let me tell you when you lose 3 years worth of blogging it is totally devastating. Anyway, now that I've written a book;) Hope you have a super week.
