Hello Everyone ....

A few days ago I read something that got me very excited ..... Crafty-Emblies are looking for 3 people to join their design team.... If you have used any of their products you will understand how wonderful it would be to join their design team ...

Here are my 3  Favorite altered items I have made in the last few months.   

1.  Desk Tidy 
This first one started out as an old cookery book ... I got the idea off youtube but took it a step further by adding the sections  for holding pens, sharpener's, sticky notes etc, while the folded pages are great for holding notes, cards  & photos.. simply slide them between the pages.

2 ... Halloween 

This is a little scene I put together for Halloween this year ... it was my very first order from
 Crafty-Emblies and I saw the Tag and thought it would make a great tomb stone ... I built the base from chip board and added acetate to mount the ghost and the bat so they would appear to be floating above and in front of the tomb stone.

3....  Christmas Waterless Snow Globe

My third entry is my version of a waterless Snow Globe ... this started its life as a coffee Mate tin
I cut out a window and painted the whole thing white.  I lined the inside with black handmade paper which has flecks of silver (I chose this so the light would bounce off the flecks and make the inside sparkle)  I glued the reindeer into the front and cut out and glued a fence behind the reindeer.  I bought a battery operated fiber optic christmas tree and placed this behind the fence. Once the decorated lid is in place and the tree is lit it gives a great effect and looks wonderful .... I added flocking to the fence and the floor of the tin for snow.  I was very pleased at how it turned out.
This was made for a swap and the recipient has done a video on youtube ....  her youtube name is .......Debbiehemsworth 

Thank you all for taking the time to read and look at my blog
