Good morning (just!) everyone!

Hope you are having a great weekend.  I have to be really quick today, haven't got started at all and its nearly midday!!  

I have done an altered item today. I bought an old letter rack from Oxfam the other day which I thought would be great to decorate.  Here is the item before I started:

And here are a few pictures of the finished result!

I really had fun doing this and I should really make time to do more of this sort of thing.  My cupboard is full of stuff waiting to be altered! 

So, I painted up with my eco-friendly paint in white and then covered with MME paper - Alphabet Soup (which I love!) and bought from Quixotic Paperie.  I inked up the edges with my chalk pad. For my images I used the very cute Tiddly Wings from Pollycraft, I used "Bunches" and "Heart"I then used my gorgeous new felt from Ladybug Crafts Ink (love the orange!) which you can get here(DON'T FORGET THE SALE OVER AT LADYBUG CRAFTS WHICH ENDS TOMORROW - HURRY!!)  I then made the flowers and grass with my die-namics dies which I bought from Dies to Die For here

I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it! 

Sorry it's so quick today.  Have a great day and speak to you soon!
