Altered? - You Bet!

Hi All

Thanks for your efforts last week on what appeared to be a difficult subject! It pleases us no end when you have a go, we love to encourage you to try new things and are thrilled when you grit your teeth and give it a go.

This week we have been asked by the lovely Lyn to Alter Something, so alter something we did, and I'm astounded by the ideas our DT have had.

I'll start with Lyn's project as the challenge was her choice, would you believe she's altered a Light Switch!!!!!!







Fantastic projects don't you think?

Hope you have a go at this one, even if you're not that confident, we are not looking for perfection, just for your enjoyment, you never know, you might surprise yourself.

We were 'real chuffed' at the entries last week and of course we have a winner, chosen by Random org and is this week

Number 4

Well done Joan and thanks for your fabulous entry, hope you feel like joining us for a guest slot on the DT. If so drop us a line at the TT email address.

Looking forward to seeing your altered projects this week. Have Fun!

x Michelle
