Wow - What a lovely week I have had, making my way around all your blogs and commenting on all that lovely Masking. Super stamps you all have and I am loving the Stampscenes some of you did!
This week at Stampin' for the Weekend we have an equally excellent challenge for you! We would like to see you 'Alter' something.
This weeks lovely sponsor is Susie at Die Cut Dreams.
Susie is offering one of you lucky crafters who catches our eye, lots and lots of lovely die cuts! There has got to be £20 worth there, can you imagine what you could do with them? Chalk them, ink them, alter them the list is endless!
My Mother in Law had a Summer House built in her back garden and since my partner and his siblings have grown up and flown the coop, she has always wanted one, and earlier this month, her dream came true (shame I have no photo's - I will get some I promise!)
Here we have all of my items that I have made for this weeks Challenge. My altered Items are the Candle and the Note book.
Candle and Bag with Tag.
Candle all wrapped up ready to go in the bag.
The card I made and the note book cover I altered.

There you have it. I had sooooo much fun making the candle. Super way to spruce up a plain alter candle and it didnt take all that long to do either. Dont forget we have the super lovely Suzie who is our Guest Designer this week. Its her last week, so make sure you pay her some love and go and see her wonderful Altered project, Thank you Suzie for Designing for us these past two weeks, been a pleasure!
Also - The Stampin' Team have come up with some Uber Altered Items, and you should go see for yourselves how they did it. Maybe they will inspire you to give something a go you wouldnt normally do?
Stamps: Magnolias Watering Can, Summer 09 Flowers (all three), Tilda with Key and Tilda with Flower also from the Summer 09 kit
Paper/Card: K&Co papers from Roam, Lifes Journey and Wild Saffron, Papermania Textured Card Stock
Tools: Retro Flower Punches (M & L), Heat Gun, Woodware Corner Rounder
Embellies: Paper Roses, Key and Lock Charms, Ribbons and Buttons all from Stash, sparkly gems on candle from Argos (which came with a Gemagic machine for putting brad like gems on clothes), Papermania Adhesive Crystal Gems.

Thank you for popping by, and I hope you have taken away some inspiration from my post
