LEJ - CH#80 - Alter it/Gift

Well hello and good morning my lovely friends, I have been AWOL, so sorry, had a proper dose of the Flu, and although it is still hanging around, I am so much better than I was.  I am trying slowly but surely to get to your blogs and catch up on what you have been doing, so if I have not got to you yet, I will over the next few days, I promise. Enough from me....onto LEJ Designs CH#80.

This week at LEJ Designs, CH#80 we would like to see Alter it/Gift.  I did manage to visit my dear friend Kitty, and she gave me the idea, as I was toiling, through the mist, at the time for inspiration, so thank you Kitty...

Empty (Ironed to Brian's amazement) Toilet Roll Holders
Altered Gift - with yummy chocolate, using
Stocking Digi and some fabulous papers, gifted to me by
my dear Friend, Shirley Chalmers, Thank you Shirley

I made them quite simple, but you could go to town on these, and would be fabulous on the xmas tree, as a special treat.

The Winners and Star Crafter's for last weeks challenge can be found here

The prize for this week, is 4 of LEJ Designs, magical images,  If you use an LEJ Design image,  please add LEJ, after you name. The 2nd person chosen, will win some Crafty Goodies... Good luck everyone and have fun.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:-

Created with Love - CWLC67 - Anything Goes (papercraft)
Stamps & Fun - Digi Stamp

That is all for me for today, hopefully be back tomorrow, with some photos off my Workdesk and my Craft Stash from the NEC...love to all xxxx
