Altered Item Challenge - Month #3

Hey Girlies!
It's month 3 of the Altered Item Challenges. Haven't had a lot of participants so this month I want to try something different. Instead of giving categories I want to give one item that I think everyone has access to. I am planning a RAK at the end of the month. I will be putting everyone that participates names in a hat and letting my DD pick a name from the hat. The only rule is you must post a link to your layout in the 2peas thread linked below. Each frame you do will get your name in the hat one entry.
So this month the challenge is find a FRAME and alter it!

Here is the link at 2peas where you can post your creations:

Happy Altering!

Altered Item Challenge - Month #2

This month's theme is Christmas in July. Let's get some projects done so we can relax and scrapbook in December. I have came up with another list of ideas but please feel free to make anything you would like for Christmas. I've been wanting to do a recipe album for Christmas but always wait until the last minute and never get it done. Guess what I'm going to work on :).

Here is the list:

Altered Pocket Calendars, Recipe Book, Lunch Pails, Paint Cans, Ornaments, Checkbook covers, Monthly calendar, CD's, Altered tins, Paint Cans, Gift Bags, Gift Card Holders, Christmas Wood Blocks, Photo Candles, Tags, Candy Bar Wrappers, Christmas Cards, Christmas Planner, Wreath, Christmas Memories Book, Christmas Tins, Paper Mache boxes

When thinking of gifts don't forget about teachers, neighbors, and coworkers.

Questions for ya

The first month of the challenge has been going great! We have had some wonderful projects posted on Two Peas. Be sure to check out the link on the previous blog post!

Have some questions for everyone:

1.) Do you think we should showcase some of the projects on the blog? Let me know.

2.) Is anyone good at creating a header? ...LOL , I attempted but failed to be creative once again. If you have header making skills and are willing to help me out please give me a yell!

3.) The 2nd challenge will be posted on July 10th. How does Christmas in July sound? We could get a jump start on Christmas decorations or Christmas Gifts....Let me know what you think.

Altered Challenge #1 - Month 1

This month the altered item category will be desk accessories. Here is a list I came up with but feel free to use what you have in your stash. Get Creative. You don't have to limit yourself to one a month do as many as you want and post them in the 2peas gallery. Here is a list of things I thought of that might fit in this category well....

Pencil Holders, Rolodex, Pens, Notebooks, Post-It Note Holders, Tape Dispenser, Stapler, Desk Organizer, Mail Trays, Paper Clips, Paper Weight, Scissors, Organization Centers, Floppy Disks, CD's, Large Clothes Pins, Photo Frames, paper weight, magnets, Mouse, Mouse Pad, Coasters, Planner, Clipboard

Here is a link to the 2peas thread where we are posting our creations for Challenge #1

**Reminder Fathers day is only a week could incorporate this as your gift!!!

Note: Some category items will overlap just because you can do so much with them, so if you don't have time to alter this month for a desk accessory the item will most likely reappear in the next few months.

Altered Item Challenge Welcome

Welcome everyone! Feel free to join in at anytime! It's time to get out all the stuff you've collected, begged for, found, or bought to alter. That large stack of things is overrunning my space so I thought what better to do than start altering and ask if anyone else is in the same boat as me. Because not everyone has the same type of things I browsed through galleries and came up with some general topics of things to alter. I thought that would allow everyone to go through their stashes and be able to participate. Each month I will post a category of items to alter. This is for fun and to get your stash down. I hope you will participate and have fun doing so. Once you alter your items please take a picture and share with everyone over at so we can praise and share ideas with each other. If at anytime you want to get something added to the category list please send me an email or leave a comment on the blog. Happy Altering!
