Good Monday Morning!!

Good Monday morning everyone!!! Just wanted you to know I have started another diet today......we had company this weekend and we ate sooo much that I don't think I'll eat all week!!!! Soooo...today is the day...gotta loose 20 pounds. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
Anyway...enought depressing talk...now onto something fun!!!
Did you join in on any of the DTGD challenges on Splitcoast last week??? I finished all 33...Whoohoo!!!! I left the altered projects till last...the picture above shows the frame, white bag, and the empty frosting container before and below shows the after.....

I made this sweet frame for Melanie's challenge, DTGD10melmel and Debbie's challenge, DTGD10Debbiedee. I used a frame I bought at Michaels for $1.00 about 6 months ago...painted it with cream acrilic paint, stamped Unity's Sheet Music background, SU's Weathered, and SU's Itty Bitty Background on the frame in random areas with Vivid Tuscan Tan. Then I added the flowers, ribbon, pearl flourish, and punched butterflies with pearl accents. Caitlyn is my youngest DGD and she is 2 going on 10 and cute as a button (do I sound like a proud grandma???)!!!

I made the bag for Holly's challenge, DTGD10Toy and for Tracy's challenge, DTGD10Lodichick.The card is for Julie's Challenge, DTGD10justwritedesigns02 and for Tiffany's challenge, DTGD10Tiffguam. Stampin Up! papers were used on both projects along with ribbons, buttons, bling, sewing, and Nina Brackett's Lovely Labels images on the bag and the sentiment from an unknown set....somewhere I have a set without the sentiment..LOL!!!
This is for DTGD10Debbiedee. I used Stampin Up! papers on the base and the lid and added the scalloped layer around the bottom with the gold pearl accents. Ribbons and the sugared roses on the top finish it off. This will be a Christmas gift for someone special.

If you are a Fan Club member, you still have till August 1 to complete all the challenges for some awesome prizes!! Check out all the fun on Splitcoaststampers!!
Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!

Joan, I saw your beautiful projects on SCS and just had to tell you, again, how beautiful they are! I'm almost done with the 33 challenges; good thing they gave us until August 1 to complete them. It's hard for a full-time working gal to find all that extra time but I've been working on it!

Your altered projects are incredible. I love the lace on the bag. I would never suspected that is a frosting container. It is so elegant. That frame is amazing, the flowers are the perfect touch Joan. Wow.
