So, while I've been scrapbooking for awhile, I have yet to do a lot of "altered things". This year, I'm really going to try out a few different altered things and see what I like! The journal was so much fun, so I'm definitely going to be doing another, bigger one soon.
I picked up one of the $1 frames for Valentines Day at Michael's and tried my hand at jazzing up a frame! Instead of red as the overall color, I chose shades of pink (of course!) and just had some fun.

|a little too much "distressing" with the sandpaper under the word 'funny'--oh well!|
|heart brads through the ribbon and a little "love potion" bottle :)|
I did get a little too aggressive with the sanding, but I'm probably the only one who will notice right away. I try not to stress myself out too much over stuff like that, but it seems I can't do any project without griping a little about this or that. That's another goal of mine: don't sweat over the small stuff! I love this hobby, but it should be FUN, right? So, have fun and enjoy!!
