Make It New!


Today's Sentimental Sundays challenge is "Make it New" ie. alter something (+ a sentiment) - I must admit I forgot the sentiment this time but I think I just got away with it with the "Lavender" words on the ribbon (fingers crossed lol).  Our fab sponsor is A Day For Daisies & I used their "Flowers in Bottle" digi which I coloured with chalk (I'm liking using chalk at the mo for a change).  I used an old baked beans tin & covered it with a bit of paper from stash, added the ribbon (which is also recycled as it was tied round some toiletries).  We have a huge DT now so there is lots & lots of inspiration :o)


The challenges:
Craft My Life - Anything Goes
A Day For Daisies - Anything Goes
Suzy Bees - Anything Goes
Allsorts - Free & Easy
Little Claire's - Make a Gift
Crafty Hands - Anything Goes
Fairy Tale - Recycling


Thanks for looking & enjoy rest of weekend & the week ahead :o)
