Altered Ego

Hahaha...I have been an altering chick lately! I was busy last night working on another Cigar Box Treasure Box. I love making these....trouble is I always give them away! This one is missing a blinged out skull and crossbones on the box lid which I will get and add later!

Here is the updated photo...although this is not the greatest of is bad! But I love the skull and crossbones my mother helped me find at Mike's today! I had to get an iron on and I wouldn't recommend ironing on a finished project....but I liked the way it worked! It kind of buckled my paper some...bummer!

Rusty Pickle Pirate princess PP
MM "lipstick" paint
Black beading from a fancy dress I cut up!
Jingle Fiber
Boat key

Then I found this bracelet my mother gave me from my grandmother...I had to alter it with a Hambly Rub On! Love Love this!!!! I am all about repurposing and reusing and recycling garbage and delights such as these!! LOL

Then you will see this corrugated cardboard just waiting for delicious paper from my kit that I won from Shop Crop Suey! Yeeeiiiipppppeeeeeee! Can't wait til the postman arrives from Canada!

Be watching for a 33 1/2 Record altered project I am going to create! I can't wait!

Now how awesome are these keys from the flea market...a quarter a piece!

And I got all of this for 4.00

These were lying in a old old old music box for .50!

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me some lovey dovey 'cause I need all the positive reinforcement I can get!
