My first altered chipboard!!

At the last DoCrafts demo Mum & I went to at Ross Labels, the demonstrator (Louise) had made a wall sign using a page from a chipboard album. Now I have a few of these from a blog candy I won a while ago (they're made by Crayola), and that was just the inspiration I needed to get them out and have a go. At the same demo I also bought some little calendar tabs. Here's what I came up with...
Side One is decorated with striped paper from DCWV Scrapbook stack. The sentiment was downloaded from Papercrafts Magazine website. I think it's a brilliant one! I've sanded & inked the edges of the star shape and added some gems to each point for a bit of bling! 3 lovely roses to finish it off!

Side Two - The paper Papermania's Love paper pack, with a sentiment is from Create with TLC. Paulette has loads of fantastic sentiments and word arts so go and see the blog!! I've used a couple of chipboard hearts and some Zoomz (also won in candy). I popped a couple of eyelets into the punched holes and used some of my jewellery tiger tail wire & beads to make a loop to hang the calendar with.

Challenges I'm entering:
Sentimental Sundays #15 - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly #55 - Old, New, Borrowed or Blue (old is chipboards, new is calendar)
Sir Stampalot August - Bring on the bling
