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.

I would like to join this. I have a blank canvas that I have had for some time and two pictures of my grandparents on their wedding day. I want to alter the canvas to give it to them. And I want to do it before my grandpa dies--he is really sick.

Here are my first things for the month. Teacher gifts. TFL

Altered Comp Books / Teahcer Gifts By FinallyMama

Nothing really altered here...I just like the way it turned out! I just cut a hole in the front and glued a peice of transparency over the hole then filled the bag with peanuts.

Just checking in.

I have a question... I have two photos of my grandparents wedding that I am going to put on an altered canvas. I tried scanning the photos, but they turned out super crappy and not the way I wanted. My question is, would it hurt to use them if I used photo corner tabs instead of adhearing the actually photo onto the canvas?

I think I would have copies made if your scanner and printer are not making an almost exact copy. Just always remember accidents do happen and you really don't want anything happening to the original pictures.

I'm doing much better, thanks for asking! I am pretty sure it was the flu, and it took a week or two to get over it, but I'm ok now. I have developed a bit of a cough since then, and so has DD. Mine is an itchy-throat dry sort of cough, hers sounds wetter and yuckier. I'm keeping an eye on it. Life with DH is good, getting used to each other again. He's still pretty predictable 90% of the time. We're buying a house, just waiting to find out for sure if we get the loan. Hoping for the best, we got a good deal on the house and a great rate too. Excited, nervous, anxious, happy. Hope to move soon.

thanks. DD was up WAAAAY late last night, she was coughing a lot and crying because she couldn't sleep, it was awful. today she seems to be in a good mood, but I bet the lack of sleep will catch up with her tomorrow. My cough is getting more like hers, too. Ugh. I hope it all passes quickly. My mom just found out she has pneumonia (again) but apparently its not too bad, because the doctor sent her on home instead of to the hospital. Where is SUMMER?

Sounds like some of the same stuff some guys at work had...took them a few weeks to get over the cough. I hope you all get to feeling better...have you tried to take over the counter cough meds with a decongestant? or even the night time brand for children might help your DD.

Summer...it's here in full swing...the high temp yesterday was 96 and were looking for the same today.

Good Morning! I'm checking in early today...I'm receiving an award this morning from the Garrison Commander. I was told to report to work today at 11...I'm a little nervous...

After the awards ceremony I'm going to go and pick up a couple of things to finish the frame I'm working on...

wow, congrats Janet! You'll be fine, just take a few deep breaths.

today is my last day working in the deli at my Walmart, I'm transferring to cashier. (YAY! I get to leave Deli!!) Another girl in the Deli is transferring to another store, and today is her last day in our Deli also. I heard they are throwing her a going-away party today. Her, not me, because I'm not leaving our store. Not that our department manager would allow them to throw me a going away party even if I were leaving the store... she hates me. but whatever. It's going to be a long day. at least its my last day in Deli.

well i'm finally done with the deli. YAY! they had that going away party for the other girl who was leaving (Ashley), with a cake that said "We'll Miss You Ashley" and gave her a card we all had to sign, and told me to stay out front to help customers while they did the party thing. then later they invited me to have some food, which I declined. Not my party. I wasn't even invited. No thanks. Well maybe I am overreacting. But at least it's all over and I don't have to go back. *whew* weekend off now before I start checking. lucky thing, too, because I need to get over this cold or whatever it is that i have.

Janet, how did it go for you today?

I probably would have done the same thing and declined...some people are so rude! They could have had the party for both of you...just forgive them in your heart but don't forget, what goes around comes around. Keep your chin up better things await you!

*whew* I was supposed to rest today, but I ended up going to the open crop at my LSS for a couple of hours and then spent the afternoon furniture shopping with DH for a desk for his computer. Which means I get the old desk, which means I get my new laptop off my scrappin' table! lol. at the open crop I finished one card for a swap and made another for it, and also finished Father's Day cards for DH and my Dad. I really need to start taking pictures again and making actually LO's. I think I will do that and start a new album with our new house. It seems like a good milestone to start an album for. I just hope we get the house. lol. If not this one, we'll find another. But I think we'll get this one.

PS, Janet, I like the new pic!

I do like having a desk and having my scrap table open again. I have been tossing around ideas for when we move, how I will orgnize my scraproom. i'd love to have cabinet with a countertop like my LSS has in their scraproom, it looks so nice and organized. but cabinets are expensive, it seems. i am going back to Lowes soon to price their unfinished base cabinets and basic countertops. I still think it will be too much. Blah. lol. I'm already planning to refinish the kitchen cabinets in that house. they are a dark ugly wood. i'm gonna strip it all and stain it a warmer color and finish it and all. I can't wait to own our own house!!

Don't give up on your dream room....it took me 30 years to get my craft room. Just take it one step and one day at a time.

Are you going with the country look in your new kitchen too?

HL had a sale last week on the metal barn stars they were half off I got a couple to decorate, and when I saw the July 4th deco I thought about you.

welllll.... i'm not sure what we're doing now. LOL. i was liking the country/americana look, but it totally clashes with our couch, and we can't really change the couch yet, can't get a new one and don't like slip covers. Our couch is striped with maroon and a kind of forest green and a bit of a goldish brown. UGLY. But I think with a lighter shade of the green on the walls, and some maroon accents throughout the room, we can pull a decent look together. The kitchen is probably going to be a good place to keep the americana look, or maybe I can decorate my scraproom with it. We'll see. I want the kitchen painted a warm color, maybe a kind of peach or melon or something. Maybe. Maybe not. Thanks for the thought, too. I saw a lot of cute July 4th decorations at Michael's the other day, too. So cute.

I understand that...maroon/burgandy looks good with the forest green. I have those colors in my bedroom along with a little navy blue. Those are nice rich colors. I'm sure your going to enjoy decorating your new house. Your so talented I'm sure you'll fill it up with beautiful things.

I guess... I don't really like the maroon/dark green combo myself, but I'll have to make it work. I prefer light inviting colors, really. Oh well, sooner or later we'll replace the couch and i can repaint. and thanks, but I'm not THAT talented. I do enjoy decorating and stuff. As long as I can remember I've always loved art and making things.

I have been *trying* to alter a 12x12 frame but I can't seem to get it to look right. I also have a set of frames I want to get altered in a week or so.
FOR ANYONE WITH KIDS:
I just opened a KIDS ONLY swap for kid's 2-12. It works like a regular swap and they can make whatever they want. I hope you'll check it out and sign your little ones up for fun and mail!!

LOL! Sometimes we have to make do with what we have...my house came with wall to wall ugly green carpet...so I had to change my colors and deco to match...LOL! I too am tired of it that's why my scraproom is so colorful! I probably won't ever see this house like I really want it....but I can dream!

I'm so there with you!! My in-laws built this house that we are now living in... there is SOME awful carpet in 2 of the bedrooms, a weird blue color (like what's in my scraproom)...

I went completely out of my box down the hall and into the basement with this one...at least it's what my DD wanted to put on her dragon shelf...She chose everything...Sorry I'm just not liking it but it's my altered project for this month...I can't post my other altered project until my swap pal gets it...Now I'm going to start on MY Bazzill frame for my dragon/Medieval free living room...LOL! Don't get me wrong I have nothing at all against medieval dragon stuff....it's just completely out of my comfort zone....


oooops...I'm so ashamed I forgot to link it...

janet, that frame is cute, don't worry about it. you said DD liked it, and thats what mattered most. I think it is cute, too. we all have to step out of our comfort zones once in a while especially when it comes to gifts.

rebecca, that is suce a cute idea. love it. good job.

She wanted it to look "dirtier". She asked me if I would add more brown to the front...so I guess that's what I'll do and post another pic...
