i believe in fairies

This week's challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is to include something ALTERED  on your project.

I have altered a chipboard door hanger.

Actually I cheated. I took a door hanger that I had bought, traced around it onto chipboard, cut a hole with my nesties and decorated it. Does that count? I'm too tight to pay 75p everytime I want to make a chipboard door hanger

I have used Prima ~ Fairy Flora 12 x 12 and 6 x 6 papers.

I cut the grass using the Magnolia Doohickey ~ Grass die which I layered up three times and added some stickles and ribbon.

The image is Magnolia ~ Beautiful Tilda. I have coloured her with copics and added more stickles.

For the tree, I used Magnolia Doohickey die ~ Magnolia tree, which I love!

Next up is the Magnolia doohickey ~ dream tage.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

fate and dreams collide

Well hurrar! Blogger is working again and all is well with the world.

Today's challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity is to use any or all of the above colours in your project. 

To make my envelope album, I've used the red and white colours. Whether they are grenadine and vanilla, I have no idea.

I've used Bazzill cardstock for the cover and jazzed it up by spritzing it with Tattered Angels ~ Glimmer Mist. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz stamp and I made a metal frame using the Tim Holtz Sizzix ~ Tags & Bookplates die and uhmmm, a piece of metal!
The book is made up of envelopes and tags.

The tags were cut with the Sizzix Tags & Bookplates die.
The envelopes were cut with my Sizzix ~ Envelope die.

I've given each envelope a different fastening closure.
I used up another of those Tim Holtz ~ Fragments. Woohoo! Only another 42 to go.

Papers used were Pink Paislee ~ 365 degrees. Seems I had quite a few of the same sheets in my stash.

Sorry about all the photos, I just like taking photos.
I'm going to enter this in at the following challenges:
