Bloggers Challenge

This week's challenge was to alter something. I did a little bit of a variation of that and rather than altering something, I created a decorative scene with altered chipboard. So I did alter the chipboard.

My goal this week was to use things that I have had for over 2 months and not used! So, I have had the chipboard "On Board So Tweet" since last fall and havenot opened it. I have also had the sticky cuts sweet for a few months.

This little scene was inspired by an idea that Gretchen Barron had on her blog. I used the Good Morning Sunshine paper as the background.

How fun. I can't believe you think 2 months is a long time. I still have ALL the stuff I bought at the Cape in the basement in a bag, lol. Someday I will use it, I hope. Great job on the altered chipboard scene. It is really cute.

Love the card!!! I skipped it just because I don't alter too much other than frames.
