Phew, it's all go!

Good day bloggers, hope the weather is OK for you. It's not too bad here at the moment at least it's stopped raining. It's nowhere near as hot as yesterday which is a bit of a relief.
I'm a bit behind getting this post up as my daughter moved house yesterday and it was a bit hectic to say the least. I spent most of the day helping out, well I say helping, I felt a bit of a spare part most of the time. I felt so sorry for the poor removal men humping stuff about in the hot weather. Anyway they are in the new house just have to get it how they would like it. Justine loves decorating and interior design so she'll be happy.

Now on to today new challenge at Try it on Tuesday.
This week it's ALTER something and we'd like you to alter a BOX. It can be any sort of box and we have a varied selection by the Design Team to help get your juices flowing. Don't forget we are sponsored this week by The Craft Barn who have a great selection of goodies perfect for the challenge. As always they are offering a £15 voucher so if you join us don't forget to give them a mention to be in with a chance of winning.
Here's mine

I chose to alter a chocolate box.
I was well into altering it when I realised I hadn't taken a before picture so I took a picture of the still to be covered base of the base.
I cut the side borders using an MS punch and coloured it with the Big & Juicy Spice pad using a dusting brush then stamped the leaves using an Adirondack pad. I covered the lid with Core'dinations brown card and added a doiley, coloured using the same B&J pad. I stamped some flowers and coloured them again with the same pad then spritzed with pearl Glimmer Mist.
Well better dash as lots to do again today. Do hope you'll join us for the challenge.
Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments.
