A bit of a Change!

Hi folks, Louise here,

I know I'm a bit late in the year to be making a calender but I've been having a sort out and I came across a freebie calender that my dad was given at work and then passed on to me, this is the calender....
I thought it was crying out to be altered.

Now, are you a fan of recycling? Do you see rubbish and think Oooh I know just what I could do with that! Well, I bought a fantastic Tim Holtz ruler from Charmed Cards and Crafts recently and I kept the packaging because I saw the plastic casing and thought it would make brilliant pockets - I know- I'm mad! LOL
Here's the packaging....

Put it together and what do you get? Bippity-Boppity-Boo!


The idea of the flowers along the top was inspired by a fabulous card that Karen made the other day. The papers are Basic Grey-Boxer and the digi image is Holly at Work from the original Holly & Madison collection.

Have I inspired you to alter something? Or maybe you might look at your trash in a different way now? hope so!

Before I go, can remind you that I want pictures of your children's creations for our first Children's gallery- if they're inspired by or using a Charmed download - we want em! Just email your piccies to me along with your child's first name and age and we'll showcase them real soon.

Have a lovely day,

♥♥♥Louise ♥♥♥
