Get Ready to Alter It!

Lexi's Creations challenge this time is for an altered project, it can be great fun taking something that is no longer needed (or is still needed but could do with a new lease of life) & making it into something different or just better! Our fab sponsor this week is Joanna Sheen :)

In my craft room I have a big bag full of toilet roll holders, ice cream tubs & various boxes all waiting to be made into something wonderful lol but for this challenged I used a children's Filofax. My hubby rescued lots of these from the skip at work for me so I have several in various designs (& so do my friends & family). This is another of my favourite of Lexi's images & she is called "Chrissie" & she has been coloured with ProMarkers. The papers, flowers & hearts are from Zoe Pearn. I did lots of sewing again & finished off with Glamour Dust, Lexi's Fairy Dust Butterfly & gems.

I'm entering this for 11 challenges:
Creative Inspirations - Anything but a Card
Daring Cardmakers - A Diamond for April
Fab 'n' Funky - Spring is in the Air
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Wings
Stamptacular - Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice!
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Pollycraft - Anything Goes
Crafts & Me - Fairies or Wings
Meljens Designs - Anything Goes
AiFactory - Anything Goes
Kaboodle Doodles - Digi Girl

NB. This is the Filofax before I altered it.
