Okay, so altered items *are* fun!

I have been really striving to try out new techniques and concepts lately with my scrapbooking. Stretching to reach my uncomfortable zone and seeing what I can come up with in the process.
I have never been much into altering, mostly because I was extremely intimidated of ruining a project. But what I have learned throughout my trials and errors.......its fun and you do make errors, and sometimes those errors fixed make the project a masterpiece......
I created this little album using a Bazzill accordian album with an altered policy envelope for the cover. I decided to try a "check book-style" format for my album.
It was funny as I was sitting writing my journaling with a pencil first, like I always do, and Steve pointed out that it looked cool just written in pencil. Well, that was pretty simple and something I had never even thought of doing. Gotta love his wonderful ideas!
I've purchased a 7 Gypsies chipboard purse to alter and even a CD tin. Yup. I think I have got bitten by the altering bug. It's fun! What have you altered lately? Post a link to your special project here!
