Imaginisce "Found" Altered Challenge!

Happy New Year!

This month, (this YEAR) we are shaking it up on the first!
Instead of a sketch, we are going to do an "Found" altered challenge!

Let's start the year out green!
Re-make, re-purpose or re-use something you have or something you find!
(Don't forget to use at least 75% Imaginisce product with that item!)
Create, and then link us up on the blog!

I LOVE to go to the thrift store and see if I can find treasure!

This star was maybe $1.50... or less. I have had it since last summer. It has been waiting for the right project. I think Garden Party is the perfect fit!

So this...
Became this:
I liked the shabby look of this... so all it took to alter this was some embellishment!
Oh, and some i-rock of course!!
THIS is going on my daughters door!

Two Chances to Win!!
Hop the designers blogs for inspiration AND for a chance to win a $50 prize. (Check it out on the blog!!)
YOU MUST COMMENT ON EACH BLOG FOR A CHANCE TO WIN!

Cari Locken

Doing an altered project yourself, gets ya a chance at a $75 prize!!
(Don't forget to link back on the Imaginisce Blog!)

AWEsome!
So start your year out green!
Grab something from the recycle bin or find your own treasure!

Thanks for stopping by!
