My First MPTS Challenge!

Now I can see why people say they love challenges...
and how easy it is to become addicted to them!

The July Challenge over on More Paper Than Shoes (MPTS) is
to create a tag using the following guidelines:


-use a stamp somewhere on the tag

-make one of the images pop off from the tag's what I came up with!

Isn't she bright and cheery?

I decided to go retro with the
vintage children's illustration from Mable Lucie Attwell.

The girl pops off the page and I used my
"antique" typewriter font stamps for the words.

And the little posy is not fabric but ribbon!

There are several challenges going on at the forum, so if you love stretching your creativity, join us here.

I'm on a Design Team!!!!

I am doing the "Happy Dance" and I just had to share
because you've all supported me with feedback, suggestions, love and more love!

Anna Fearer, fellow etsian and the guru behind
contacted me last week
and asked if I'd join their brand spanking new forum!

I am so thrilled because I love the look and feel of the forum and it's an opportunity not only to share what I've learned through paper crafting and scrapbooking, but to also learn from some extremely talented artisans!
Each month, I'll be sharing tips on altered art techniques.

In addition to altered art, there are scrapbooking, card-making, paper-piecing, and mixed media teams;
ChAlLeNgEs, member showcases,GiVeAwAyS, blog candy, and InTeRaCtIvE FuN.
So, what are you waiting for??? Join us here and show off your latest creations!
