Alter/Recycle at Allsorts

 Good morning. Today is a special day in the Simpson household as it's my baby's birthday - only he's not a baby anymore because he officially becomes a teenager today (although he has been acting like one for the past few years lol!!!!!) 

 So it's Saturday and that means it's time for a new challenge over at ALLSORTS
 and this week the lovely Nicola would like to see your 

Now I was a very lucky girl to receive some fabulous new sunglasses this year from my DH
and this is the box they came in:

and this is how I altered it:

I made the 'flowers' using Spellbinders scalloped and plain circles in various sizes and following this tutorial here
DP's - MME 'Lush' - bargain from Hobbycraft at 29p per 12x12 sheet :-)
Ribbon - East of India 
Image - LOTV coloured with PM's and balloons paper-pieced
Sentiment - PC generated

Challenges I would like to enter:

Creatalicious Challenges - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Dutch Dare - Monochromatic
Papercraft Star - Anything Goes
Jen's Digi Stamps - Anything But a Card
Die Cut Dreams - At Least 5 Flowers
Stamps R Us - Friendship

So pleased to say that I am feeling so much better and now ready to face two handfuls of teenage boys for a BBQ and a camp out in the back garden - subject to the weather - if wet it will be Pizza Hut and camp out indoors :-) 
 wish me luck lol!!!!

Thanks for popping over.
Have a fabulous day.
