Allsorts #45 ~ Alter or recycle something

Good Morning

Wow we had an amazing number of entries for Amanda's Spring challenge. Don't forget to check to see if you were the winner.  Unfortunately there will be no top 5 for Amanda's challenge because Amanda spent the beginning of the week in hospital being diagnosed with gallstones so wasn't up to viewing and commenting on all your fab entries.  Hope you feel better soon Amanda!

This week it's Mummylade's turn to set the challenge and she would like us to alter or recycle something. 

At the beginning of the year I was going to alter a memo calendar so I can keep track of all the childrens school activities but never got round to doing it so when I saw Helene's challenge I knew exactly what I was going to alter. 



Image ~ Tilda picking peaches
Papers ~ MME 'Bloom & Grow'
Flowers ~ Stash
Pearls ~ Craftaroo
Leaves ~ EK Success 'Rock Fern' punch

I have recently bought some Copic Ciao markers and this was my first attempt at colouring an image.  Not entirely sure if I like them as much as Promarkers but hopefully with practice (and a few more pens lol!) my shading wll improve

Close up of image

This also fits for the following challenges

Roses on Paper ~ Punch it
Creative Card Crew ~ Going Dotty
Creative Inspirations ~ Anything but a card
Cupcake Craft ~ Food & Drink
Sew Many Challenges ~ Let's punch it
Tuesday Taggers ~ Alter Something
One Stop Craft Challenge ~ Feeling Fruity

I am going to be busy this weekend and next taking and collecting the children to birthday parties.  Chloe has been invited to 2 parties this weekend (today and tomorrow) and Jamie has been invited to a party next Saturday.  Parties seem to be very popular again amongst Chloe's friends this year.  Think it might be because they are turning 10 and are having parties to celebrate getting into double figures.  Well that's my theory anyway lol!
Hope you have a lovely weekend whatever you have planned.

This is so impressive Lisa, lovely bright colours. (I think you have the same kitchen tiles as me, lol!) I bought one Copic but no more as I much prefer my PMs. Have a great weekend. Marianne x
