About Me

My photo
Okanagan, BC, Canada
Welcome to my crafting blog. After retirement, my husband and I moved to a beautiful location in the Okanagan area of British Columbia. I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Altered Item Challenge

Thank you for stopping by. Fitztown is having an alter item challenge this week and I decided to try something different and this is my creation.  At the local thrift store I found this picture frame that was an old fashion bicycle and thought it could work with one of the old fashion ladies from the Fitztown collection of images.  I also used two of their pretty butterflies from the garden collection. You can find the images here.

The flowers also came from the local thrift store 

Hope you enjoyed my altered item and that you will join us this week at Fitztown.  Have a creative day.  I am now on my way back into my craft room to clean up my mess.

I am entering my project in the following challenge:

Anything but a card - Open theme
Altered Eclectics - Anything goes
My Heart Pieces - Anything But a Card
Pumpkin spice -  Anything Goes
