Altered Sneak Peek!

Welcome to Friday! TGIF!! I am excited to be able to bring you a sneak peek of one of the new sets that will be available on March 1st at Storage Units Ink and More. This set is full of adorable little images for Easter. The set is called Some Bunny Loves You.

I decided it would be fun to combine this with this week's Blogger's Challenge too which was to Alter something. I have so many things around in my studio to alter it was hard to pick what to do but I finally grabbed a plan oval wooden plaque and a old beat up magnet and got to work altering. Here is the results. First the wooden plaque.....


Here is the before picture...

Next came this adorable little magnet. At least it is adorable now. I think it is so cute.


As you can see it wasn't too cute before but it was only 25 cents so of course I bought a whole bunch of them and stored them away for that someday project.


This was such a fun challenge. Nice to use up a few things that have been in my studio for FOREVER! Be sure to check out the other Sneak Peeks for the day
