Gorgeous projects by you all last week, it is always great to see what you can do. Can I just remind you to take a look at our  Hatter's blog & please read our rules of entry, Thanks.
I am really looking forward to seeing what you will make of this challenge "Alter a mousetrap" when I first heard this I did think OMGosh ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I did a few deep breathes and came up with this. I covered the MT in paper and stamped text over it, added bits of old book and gold leafing I rubbed in sepia to age it all. And on the shiny metal I dripped rust alcohol ink to age. To decorate I used  2 punched out paper hearts and I made 2 rolled paper flowers and a swirl. Can you spot my cheeky mouse he holds the secret to escape of the trap Thank goodness LOL. I do hope you give it a go it was a lot of fun doing this and the best thing is we the DT did a swap mine went to Florence and I was lucky to get Chrissies. Then Janet made us all one each as a surprise.
Thanks for stopping by and do look at  Florence, Janet and Chrissie to see their lovely projects.  Hugs Sandra XXX

Only you could make a mousetrap look so elegant Sandra. I just love it and also love the way that all our mousetraps looked different from each other. Always great to craft with you.

Love Chrissie xx
