Altered Items

I've just been venturing into the world of altered items. I haven't done many things but I love seeing what others do and then using it for inspiration. I share more of them in the next few days but his one of the projects I have most recently done... be kind, they were first attempts! : )

This was my most recent creation. I spray painted (actually Josh did!) a cookie sheet black and used the wedding favor canisters from Michael's. I added magnets to the back so they would stick to the pan. I used Modge Podge to attach some paper to the pan and punched the circle from Making Memories christmas paper. Then of course, my fabulous Cricut cut all the numbers for me! I put some M & M's inside!

This is just a closer shot of the canisters:

And then finally, a side view from an angle:

Thanks for visiting!!!

A New Year of Scrapping

Well, I wanted to start this blog to share my creations in scrapbooking. This year I have set my goal of completing 52 layouts (lo's) and making 52 cards for 2010. I set the same goal for scrapbooking last year and ended up doing 60 pages so I figured that I should keep the same goal, and hope to pass it, because I KNOW that I have so many things that I WANT to scrap!

This weekend I was able to finish a few pages. These are actually going to be for my Mother-in-law. I made my In-laws a photo album a couple of Christmas' ago and I try to make a few pages for them to add to it every now and then.
