Bloggers Challenge-Alter it! April 24, 2009

My first attempt at this week's Bloggers Challenge was this clothespin. I am not 100% happy with the way this turned out. I wanted to see if I could come up with something I like even better, so I tried again!

My second try at this week's Bloggers Challenge is this butterfly can. I am happier with this than then clothespin, but something still wasn't quite right.

Here is what I finally did for the Bloggers Challenge-Alter it! I am going to a bridal shower next weekend and I wanted to do something special for her gift. It's been sitting on my kitchen counter for a week, so I was glad we had this challenge so I actually got it done!

I used some of the things from the Pretties Kit on the top. I like the way the hat pin looks! I can rarely think of an idea to use these hat pins for, but I was happy with how it turned out here.

I added some of the flowers to the side. I used the Big Shot to cut out/emboss the flowers and then put a half pearl from the Pretties Kit in the middle. Hopefully I will have time to fill the bowls with something yummy! We're each going to give our favorite recipe. I want to make some of my favorite cookies and stick them in the bowls before next weekend.

Way to keep going on something, I would have stopped after the clothespins. But I am glad you are persistent, all three projects are great.
