Welcome to day #23...today i have two projects to share with you, both made with CS DESIGNS images as i am the visiting artist at ART WITH NO BOUNDARIES and
 RECYCLE, RE-PURPOSE and RE-INVENT for this month......and  reminding you that the month is nearly over and you have just a few more days to enter these challenges..... I have adored working with Chris's designs.... so a big Thanks Chris for asking me.
 I altered (an already altered clock..... i did it for a project last year) a clock using 'RAVEN' a new image of Chris's.... to me she looks like a very quirky 'Alice in wonderland' so i went with a bat theme to fit the challenge at Altered Alice.
 I have used glitter....well actually stickles but it still gave me the shivers.....  glitter and i are not the best of buddies.
 I also made a matchbook....using all three of Chris's new shrunken heads..... recycled packaging paper....
 ...and dinner money envelopes that my girls use for school.
 It is a handy little handbag size memo book, space to write your shopping list... with pockets for treasures.... or junk :)
I'll be back for DAY #24 tomorrow.....  the full blog roll is on my side bar...thanks for stopping by .BDx
I'd like to enter the following challenges.....
