Welcome to the Monthly Altering Challenge! Open to all!

Have you got an item you want to alter but you’re not quite sure what to do or how to do it?

Or maybe you know what you want to do but would like to see an “Altering Challenge” thread to share your projects, ideas, and how to techniques.

Or just maybe you’re like me and have a huge box that is overflowing with items to alter and you just need to be challenged to get them done.

All I ask is that you post a before pic of the item and an after pic of the item you are altering so we all can see the transformation. Sharing your tips and techniques would be great too!

Just jump on in for some altering fun!! I’m a sneaky ole’ gal so I might sneak in a prize or two! But in order to get a prize you must leave comments for others too. This month I'll post a poll for the winner!

Everyone is welcome! No limits on how many or how few altered items! Jump on in and join the Altering fun!

"May's" RAK winner is.......FinallyMama!!!

My next altering project will be a Bazzill magnet frame and a SEI mini book to fit in the opening...I started on it yesterday...along with a few other things...I had to cut the mini book and plastic pages down to fit the opening...that made the book ugly...so I had to cover it and it looks nice now...I still have a lot of work to do on it and I'm waiting on the brown ink I ordered to get here so I move on to the next step. It's for my DD she like the bohemia look...with lavender.
