ALTERED CD

HOW EXCITED AM I??? I WON A COMPETITION!!!!!


I have never entered one before and never in my wildest dreams did I think I would win!!! I altered a CD for a challenge on The PaperGirls blog. We had to use some newspaper on it too. There were some amazing entries on there. It was a shame the one I voted for didn't win because I loved it!

A HUGE thank you to all those that voted for me XXXXXXX

Anyway I covered the base with some lovely paper from a 6x6 Papermania Exquisite pad. It has a pretty border that sat just right even after I cut out the circle! The chipboard tree is by 2Crafty and available from BubblyFunk. Its gorgeous and has a pretty little bird sitting on the top. I sponged it with different paints and stuck some little leaves on to it in 3D. I feel pretty strongly about how we treat nature so I made up a quote: WE CAN ALL LEARN FROM NATURE. I cut out 4 of the words from a newspaper but had to write the other as I couldn't find it!!!!!( Or rather I got fed up looking hehe)

Oh forgot to say that I won some lovely stamp stamps!!!! Can't wait to play with those!!!

hahahahaha If you have got this far thank you so much for looking XXXX

Woo hoo! Well done Karen, your CD is gorgeous. Lovely that you won, I checked the blog last night and saw that you had most votes, but there wasn't a post announcing it at that point.
