Blogger's Challenge

Good Morning.  Or at least for another minute!  This week's challenge is to make an altered item.  This is an Advent Calendar that I made a couple of weeks ago for an upcoming class.

I will be teaching a class on making this calendar on Sunday Nov. 13th from 1 to 4pm.  So if you are interested in joining us, let me know.

I used an 18x20" artist's frame and covered it with square of Holly Jolly designer paper.  I attached favor tins that can be purchased in the wedding department of the local craft stores.

Then I added a little task to the inside of each tin.  What a great idea for families with kids.  Too bad my kids are now too old for this...

Don't forget to check out all the great things that my blogging friends have made.  I can't wait to see what everyone else has altered!

Have a great weekend!
