Stampin for the Weekend DT Piece

This week at Stampin for the Weekend, we would like to see "Altering", whether this is something you have bought to alter or maybe an item from around the home.
I bought this chipboard crown from Ally Pally last year. Covered with paper, edged with Rangers Acryllic Dabber in Gold, lots of embellishments and a calender for next year which I spritzed with Glimmer Mist as was just too white.

This weeks sponsor is Die Cut Dreams.
Hope you can join in this weeks challenge, think it will be alot of fun and please do take a look at which fab creations the DT have come up with, including Suzie who is again our GD this week.
Cant wait to see what you come up with.
Take Care
