Altered CD challenge win these postal stamps

Your chance to win these great stamps by entering our Altered CD challenge ..see below

Our next challenge will be on Monday the 10th of November... the challenge is to alter an old CD which must include words from a magazine/newspaper and as before using any other medium you wish, email them to me at chrissylamata@live.co.uk

Here we are with our challenge for November.....

To alter an old CD to the specifications above....

You may think no problems... and yes both Chris and I thought.. 'great, love this challenge' and so during our crafting session on Wednesday we completed ours and thought wow that was OK.
UNTIL.... today when I read the challenge before posting them... and we had both forgotten to use words from a magazine/newspaper.... DOH!!! rofl.... we were howling at our mistake.... and so back to the drawing board.


'Oh Baby, Them there eyes' is Chris' fabulous example of altering a CD, she used Cosmo Cricket papers and chipboard making it into a scrapbooking page which she intends to turn into a book..good idea and wait 'till DGS see's his photo. She even managed to use one of the postal stamps to the leaves on the 3d tree.

This altered CD above was my first attempt but does not abide by the rules however I am showing you it anyway... lol. but it doesn't count as the challenge...lol

The stamps I used are some of the postal ones you are able to win by entering your own Altered CD in the challenge, they are from Tanda Stamps and the lovely images are from Crafty Individuals the hats from Lisa's altered art.

Above we have my example and this time I am using words from a magazine.... only 2 of them... they are 'Forever Friends' I had to search for something to go with these images as I sooo wanted to use them...they are from 'The Artistic Stamper' 20's plate which I was lucky enough to win in a challenge over at 'The Artygirlz blog' earlier this year. The papers are from Anita's Christmas range. the sentiment is from 'Rivercity Rubberworks' I purchased it about 2yrs ago... Karen at Scrapz does stock some of their stamps.

Because we are almost a day late posting our examples due to our mistake we will give you until midnight Tuesday our time to email them to us at the address above.

We already have some great altered CD's in so if you would like to spread the word a bit more then please do.

PLEASE DO NOT put your entries onto your blog before we have a winner which will be chosen by YOU using a poll... we will post the entries on Wednesday 12th Nov.

Hope you are still with us but before we sign off I must show you a photo of a man Chris found for me...she thinks it's time I had one lol

Let me tell you my hair and body actually looked like that 5 years ago... I am off to dream of him rofpmsl..thanx Chris...night night.
P.S. she found him at Photofunia
See the altered box file below using the Tanda Stamps which are up for grabs on this post.

Love Chris and Chriss xx

Chriss, Thank you so much for letting me know about this challenge. I've been so sick with a cold that I didn't dare take on anything so ambitious. I've managed to crank out a couple of challenges today, starting to feel better, but my brain is still very foggy. Please don't fail to let me know about the next one. I really appreciate it.
