CES DT Challenge Piece.

Good morning everyone, its finally the weekend and another new challenge over at the CES Challenge blog. Thanks to everyone who played along last week, some fab entries. This weeks challenge is anything but a card. Eek, not often I come out of my comfort zone but I saved this coffee powder tin wondering if I'd ever get round to altering it and hey presto! I've been reading how so many are going to use old stash and unused items. The paper and bazzill are from my scrap draw, so I've made a start. This really was a make it up as you go along jobs but I think its really pretty. Jessica my 16yr old really liked it and she's not into girly things so I've given it to for her nik-naks. 

Here a list of challenges;
Paperplay - Ribbon every which way
MAWTT - Things with Wings
Paperminutes - Anything Goes
Anything Goes Challenge - Anything Goes
Cutie Pie - Ribbons and Lace

Thats it from me today. Thanks for stopping and enjoy the rest of your week!
Back tomorrow with another card.

PS: Darcy our labrador is alot better now, tablets doing the trick!
