We had a lovely afternoon, even if they did make off with a lot of my stash!!!!! (as you will see from the piccies!)
I showed them my attempts at altered art bookmarks after I watched a demo by Andy Skinner at the Craft Barn the other week. Naturally they wanted to have a go; and as my daughter said "it was a tad out of our comfort zone".
Anyway here are some photos of our "play".
|Daugher and Granddaughter playing in the No.10 - "Maggie's Den"|

|Ellie's teddybear key ring|
|an old painted serviette ring, which has been revamped by Dawn - I got to paint the leaf!|
(have got 5 more to makeover)
|and finally, my effort - I didn't have anything to "alter" so finished painting this tissue box!|
Thanks for dropping by. Hope you enjoyed the photos of our play day.
