Altered Item and apologies! :)

I should never have signed up on Facebook. :) Actually, I'm really enjoying it but my goodness - where does the time go? hee hee! I'm addicted to Scramble which is a word game like Boggle. My sister, Mom and I play lots of word games and when Grammie was alive, she and I played Scrabble from when I was a very young girl to when she passed away during my high school years. Good memories.

So, that's my excuse along with a very busy life at the moment for not getting something posted sooner or getting blogs commented on. I'll do better, I promise. :)

I found this frame for $1 at Hobby Lobby. It had a bit of a chunk out of the corner but I liked the shape so I bought it and covered it with Uptown Girl paper. Lots of shine and flowers and the TAC Just Dream stamp set brought it to life. I can't believe I forgot to take a "before" pic so you could see the startling difference. Ah well, it's all good. :) I took it to Winter Round-up for my prop swap gift. It was so much fun to make! I bought a bunch of other bargain items to alter too so can't wait to dig back in and make more pretty stuff out of some banged up bargains. :)

Happy Stamping!!
