So we all have gotten into altering items of one sort or another. Remember Heidi's challenge?
So what item do you have sitting around to alter that has been…well…sitting around? Let's say…3 months or more.
Tell us one or multiple items that you had great plans for and just haven't gotten around to.
Extra brownie points if you alter said item by the end of the month and post pictures here. You may even get a RAK from me
"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."July 19, 2013 at 9:26 pm #215504
So I have wine bottles, a cigar box, multiple cardboard boxes, Melissa Frances oval stacking boxes, a small round cheese box, more mini albums than you can shake a fist at, AND the Kaisercraft MDF desk caddy.
My Heidi Swapp shadowbox frame doesn't count because I just bought that at camp in June. LOL
The only thing I had specific plans for was the Kaisercraft. I purchased the Bo Bunny Enchanted line to cover the thing so it coordinated in my room but…I ain't done squat!!!
Ok gals…spill…whatcha got?

Let's see, I have like 4 minis, a wine bottle, a CREATE wood sign, like 14 frames, a candle holder……I think that's it.

Oh, dear, what I have here is a mess 🙁 (
I'm actually putting the finishing touches on the tool box from the June tech kit. Nothing too fancy; I just wanted to make something to hold part of the monthly kit.
I did unearth a couple of small bottles that I bought a long time ago with every intention of altering them. Some frames, a couple of small balsa boxes…..
I'll TRY to work on something or other, not part of a project kit this month.July 19, 2013 at 11:50 pm #215507
Okay, not really to respond to the question, but I did this too late to post in the Challenge Forums, so I'm putting it here. As I said, very, very simple.

So much…headbands, chipboard caddy and clock, jouals, and I want to do another tissue box too!July 20, 2013 at 4:37 pm #215512
Your altered box is wonderful Peggy!!!
And I have so many projects waiting to be altered it would take a day to list!!!July 20, 2013 at 7:54 pm #215513July 20, 2013 at 8:12 pm #215514
I have a whole coer of things I need to alter. In fact, I'm going to work on one of them for the August kit- the colors are perfect for it. I hope it all comes together!July 20, 2013 at 8:25 pm #215515
I have a couple of wooden boxes, some wooden frames, the toolbox kit and an advent calendar! I should get busy!July 20, 2013 at 10:53 pm #215516
Okay, so I'm working on the tech challenge.
I've selected a photo that goes perfectly with the kit colors and the window chippie.
I have nothing that I think would work with the above.
I'm using corrugated cardboard.
And that's why we all have piles and piles and piles of stuff…July 21, 2013 at 4:05 am #215517
Oh boy…do we have piles.
Speaking of which….short (long) story:
So last June I got an extra pp on TOP of my perma, plus an extra CS, plus extra flowers…I beefed up because I LOVED it so.
Do you know I still haven't touched ANY of it…until now. I just used it for my hot and sultry submission and I was oh so right to purchase so much of it because I just LOVE that kit. I plan to make at least one LO per month with that kit until it's used right up!
