All Things Altered Blog Hop - March 23rd-25th

Hi Everyone
Welcome to All Things Altered Blog Hop
hosted by Pam Bray of Pammejo-scrapbookflair
if you are just left CHRISTINE then you are in right place.
If would like to start from the beginning click HERE

Boy oh boy!
When Pam wanted to host All Things Altered my mind went bonkers!
I love altering almost anything I can get me hands on.
The requirements were to utilize
7 Gypies, Graphic 45 and/or Tim Holtz yummies

I got inspired by my old
travels through Europe
While backpacking through the countries
we stayed at many bed & breakfast instead of hostels or hotels
on a strict budget we lived among the people who rented
 out a small room in their homes.
Some walls had layers and layers of paint and magazines to
patch up holes or needed a fresh look

I have many tickets, currency, postcards, candy wrapping, etc.
I collected through my travels stored away

It made me appreciate the simplicity of life

I can close my eyes and can remember
it like it was yesterday


 Modge Podge Decoupage

7 Gypsies Journey Paper Stack Collection 
beautiful stamps and tickets that I had to use

 Cricut Cartridge - Fancy Frames

love this paper

 MS Satin Paints - Indigo Blue and Black
to give it that worn look
DCWV Chalkboard paper

Tim Holtz Idea-ology Accoutrement Buttons

 7 Gypsies Tickets Numero (left) hand punched tags (right)

 Tim Holtz mini hanger clips

Mini matchbook to place stick pins
