That's the Sound of the Men Working on the Chain Gang ...

...wait! No! Not the chain gang. I've been having fun - and working hard - in the art mines.

I'm working on an altered tag album kit for Altered Pages.
I was inspired by Jocelyn, at the Art for the Creative Mind group, who made a sweet album for all the altered tags she'd received in swaps over time.

If you can't tell, there's a pocket in front of each page to put an altered tag - or any other mementos (I think photos would be very nice!).

I, of course, had to take it over the top and embellish it within an inch of its life!

So, today, I have to bind it and embellish the binding (hmmm. More embellishments ... are we noticing a trend here?)

I figured this would be a good place to put another photo of my Altered Pages October "Think Pink" altered tag challenge piece. Wouldn't this album be a good place to store such things?
Thanks for stopping by ... you know I love to hear from you, so please leave a comment just to say Hi!
... and then go make something beautiful!

Enter the October "Think Pink" Challenge!

The Altered Pages Monthly Challenge

A new challenge will commence here every second Monday of the Month and run until the end of that Month.

Inspiration will be provided for you by the Design Team and we ask that you vote for your favorite creation from the Design Team and then play along too!

At the end of each challenge the Altered Pages Design Team will pick a winner and choose a Top 3 from all the entries.

The winners and Top 3 will be announced on this page and also the Altered Pages Blog and must email Jean at within 3 days to claim their prize. Please list the Challenge No. and the word Winner in the subject line and your full name and address details in the body of the email.

Each Challenge Winner will receive a Prize pack of Altered Pages Goodies, whilst the Top 3 will each receive free, their choice of a Altered Pages Collage Sheet.

Isn't this a fab grand prize?! Papers and ribbons and flowers, oh my!

Join us again each month for a new challenge and help us spread the word by telling your friends about Altered Pages Challenges. The more the merrier!

 Okay, I know that was a lot of words. LOL But, really, it's quite simple. Make something using the October theme of "Think Pink" and post a photo or scan of it on the Altered Pages Challenges photo album by October 31. That's it!

If you'd like to tell your friends about the challenge, feel free to copy and paste the Altered Pages Challenges image above and post it on your blog or Facebook timeline!

Oh - it's only fair that I show you my creation. I figured, since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month - and the official color of that is pink - there would be a lot of art pieces honoring that issue. So, I went with a vintage pink look instead. If you click the image, it will get a lot larger and you can see the details.

 Thanks for stopping by again! It was so nice to see so many of my friends at last Friday's Altered Pages Blog Hop ... the winners of all the prizes will be announced soon!

Be sure to check out all your favorite and the great new products at Altered Pages!

...and then go make something beautiful!

Join the Pink-A-Licious ALTERED PAGES Blog Hop Today!

Welcome to the Enchanted Revelries' stop on
the Altered Pages Fall and Halloween Pink Blog Hop!
Why Pink?
So we can honor Autumn and Halloween as well as support
research and finding a cure for breast cancer!

My project for the Autumn/Halloween blog hop is 
a 4"x4" mixed media collage.
Altered Pages has an amazing array of collage images, as well as gorgeous papers, replicas of vintage German foil scrap, ribbons and ephemera - as well as a large selection of alterable materials and embellishments!

 When you leave a comment below, you'll be entered 
into a random number generator drawing for this
 little piece of Halloween art!

 So here's my little celebration scene for the Pink Halloween Theme! Now, I wish I could say this was all set up in my backyard and could invite you for treats and an official opening of the Halloween season. But, it's not true. I found these photos of this fabulous Halloween buffet online - and can't for the life of me remember where I found them. So, please!, if this was your display, please let me know so I can give you all the credit you deserve for this enticing display!

Does anything say Pink Halloween like pink cupcakes on a tray with
black mourning bunting and bows?
...well, except perhaps for a pink cupcake with black mourning bunting and ribbons and
a super sparkly silver spider!

Be sure to check regularly for the challenges 
on the Altered Pages Blog. 
Click on the image below to go to the blog and 
sign up for updates via email!

Okay, okay. I know. You want to know about today's ALTERED PAGES blog hop prizes!

First, one winner from every blog on the blog hop will win an
ALTERED PAGES collage image collection sheet!

Next, one person from each blog will be entered into a drawing for a pink scissor mouse.
So what the heck is a scissor mouse?
It cuts straight and wavy lines, ideal for 
everyday and craft paper cutting.  
NO NEED for a mat!  Just like using your computer mouse, 
roll it over the paper and it cuts beautifully! For arts, crafts, gift wrapping,
coupon and newspaper article clippings - so many uses!
You're gonna LOVE using it! So will your kids!

So, how do you enter? 
Easier than eating a pink frosted cupcake!

Leave a comment here - and on every blog participating on the ALTERED PAGES blog hop.
 There will be a name selected from each blog to win a
collage sheet and another name from every blog to be entered
into the pink top hat for a drawing for the scissor mouse prize!

And, a third drawing will name the winner of my Halloween mini-art piece!

Remember, to be eligible for the prizes, you have to visit each blog! And then let us know
that you completed the hop by posting on the ALTERED PAGES blog!

The ALTERED PAGES design team members
participating in the blog hop are
