Altered Challenge at ACLP!

Papers: Basic Grey's Pyrus Collection

Good morning, Ladies!  Here's a new challenge from A Crafty Little Place!!  AND LET ME TELL YA, it was definately a CHALLENGE for me...  I am not an altered art type of gal, but I do like how this turned finally.  I used some GORGEOUS papers by Basic Grey from the PYRUS LINE!  LOVE THESE, they are my new favorite papers!!!  When I saw these pears and funky flowers, I just fell in love!  These subdued fall colors reminded me of caramel apples, so I decided to use some caramels I had in the pantry for this 'altered challenge' at ACLP!! 

Won't this make the cutest gift?  I think KayLee's teacher may get this next Wednesday before Thanksgiving, but then again, it's kind of tricky to give 'caramels' when you don't know if they are caramel-lovers or if they have dental work that keeps them from enjoying them!  Oh well, my mother-in-law LOVES caramels, so maybe she will get this instead!

 Close Ups of the Pyrus papers by Basic Grey and candy bucket!

I used a punch by EK Success for the double scallop at bottom and my trusty circle and scallop circle Nestibilities by Spellbinders for the bucket top. A little dab of Prima flowers with a coordinating brad and an array of ribbons from my stash give it a nice touch at top!

I hope you enjoyed my candy bucket and that it inspired you to join us at A Crafty Little Place with an altered project!  I can't wait to see what you make!

See you tomorrow!
