Week 45 'Rags To Riches'

Good Morning

It is time for me - Mummylade - to host my first challenge here at Allsorts and I am of course a bit nervous :) I guess some of you know that my absolute passion is to alter things around the house so what better challenge than to alter or recycle something. Change a cereal box to a piece of art, cut a piece from an old shirt and use on a card, punch a soda can and make charms, the possibilities are endless. I'm a vintage kinda gal so as a prize this we have a vintage kit for you from my own local craft shop - Scrapbooking4you.


Here is some inspiration for you from the design team:

  21. Great challenge and the DT have made some great projects. I know mine is too late but I just thought I'd let you see it. I knew it was a mistake to do so much housework before I started any crafting. Then I had to go to work!
