What is on your list to alter???

Okay, so I have caught the alter bug! Like I promised Jaree and I got a chance to do our Crafty Saturday....LOL We decided to make a reading log.
Okay You can tell mommy totally took over this time, but Jaree did put the flower and buttons on......
She had a great time painting the huge fancy pants chipboard flower. I got a chance to break out my brand new Stamping up stamps I bought. I thought it was going to be so hard mounting the stamps and cutting them out but it was so easy. Love the library card stamp!!!
Okay Like I said, I caught the altering bug! I did another clip board. I had to do something with all of those urban couture papers I was intimidated by....the wind was blowing, and blew the flower as I took the picture. I have to take my pictures outside. They come out better..
I really love how it came out. Did this in 45 mintutes. I am getting good huh!
Love the ribbons, but hate threading them throughthe hole!!!!
Okay, I finally got a picture with the wind not blowing.....LOL
Jaree wanted everyone to know that the flower was her favorite part. She did all of the painting!!! Jaree loves to read and this was a very fun project for her....Especially, the flower and the notecards. WE decorate 20 notecards with flowers,ribbons, and pp. Everytime she reads a book she writes it on the notecard and what she liked about the book! Then she puts it into the pocket. I am so proud of her. Even though I sorta took over and Jaree let me know I took over too....LOL
I am on altering kick! My next projects is a muffin tin. I am also going to try the frap bottles everyone is raving about!!!! I gotta do a canvas....Tons of mini albums. A board book and art Journal ...idea journal . ...heck even a pringle bottle.....LOl

I just LOVE the reading log idea. I really think I'm going to make one for my best friend for Christmas--she is a reading fanatic!!--and also for my two older girls. (And, heck, maybe even for me! lol)

I pray my dd loves to read even half as much as Jaree!!!

Your projects turned out really good...and tell Jaree that her painted flower looks fantastic!!

So can you show me this new rage about altered frap bottles? and once you're done with the altered muffin tin is it still good to bake in?
