Friday Focus Alter it

Are you ready for the Fourth Of July? I hope you have plans to celebrate with your family and friends. We are usually at the beach this week for the fourth and this year we are staying home. We will be watching the fire works at the river and spending time with friends. On to the goodies....
Over on Flourishes Blog Julie is all about alter it. Find something to alter anything from a jar, box, basket whatever you see grab it and renew! I made a card to match my altered item. I pulled out a cute little clear box that I got for Christmas with some lotions in it and I added some Memory Box Frond paper to the sides. Cut out a spellbinders label 12 and made a top and bottom lid. These fantastic flowers are called Lilliput roses and oh aren't they just wonderful. The sentiment I used is from the Life Lines set. I love how this turned out! Now check out what the girls altered today:

Such an elegant set! Love the soft colors! I am sure you will have a great weekend even if it isn't at the beach! Dawn can catch a wave for both of us as the oil here has put a damper on beach going.
