Alter It at Charisma

Good morning. This is my first post for today and it's to share my DT project for

where this week the lovely Denise would like you to 


So here's what I altered 
From this 
To this

I started by covering the tub with Gesso and then when completely dried I painted it with Acrylic paint  before covering with some DP's from K&Co 'Poppy Seed' collection 

I die cut some dress forms using my new Spellbinder dies and added some adhesive gems.
The borders were die cut Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents.

I added some Marianne Rolled English Roses, Doo-Hickey Leaves and some ribbon to the lid with some Basic Grey Mini Alpha stickers.

And the best thing is that the tub has a screw top lid - so easy access to any funds that might be saved :o)

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to see the awesome inspiration from the rest of my talented DT buddies and check out the fab prizes on offer from our sponsors this week.

I can't wait to see what wonderful projects you all come up with this week.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Partytime Tuesday - Monochromatic
Papertake Weekly - For the Girls/Mum
Creative Mondays - Anything Goes
Love to Create - About the Ladies
Make it Monday - Always Anything Goes

Thanks for popping by.
I'll be back shortly with another DT share for 


Here's a sneeky peek:

Have a fabulous day.
