My Newest Victim :)

Last week, I placed an order for a Stadium Organizer (aka Sticker Stadium) & it arrived yesterday. Right away, I started working on altering it & I really love the way it turned out! I used the Basic Grey Lucky pattern paper line since it has both of my favorites colors in it, purple & blue. I adhered the paper using my Xyron 900 permanent adhesive & then used Mod Podge all over it to seal it. I then added all my embellishments on top.

This is the blue side. You can click on each photo for a larger image. Here I used 2 chipboard flowers & added rhinestones to them. I also used some navy blue mesh, 2 Basic Grey Lucky tags, Primas, more rhinestones, ribbon & staples.

Since I decided to store all my alphabet stickers & rub-ons in my Stadium Organizer, I used rub-ons for the word Alphabets & circles from the Basic Grey paper. I also added Primas & buttons on the front.

Here's a better close-up of the purple side. I used 4 chipboard flowers, Primas, shiny rick-rack, Basic Grey Lucky tags, rhinestones, staples & ribbon.

I didn't go bowling last night because my ankle was still a little sore, so I stayed home & worked on this. I even altered the dividers with leftover pattern paper, ribbons & ink. I'm not much of an altering person, but I had so much fun doing this that now I'm going around the house trying to find other things to alter :)

But it figures.....since I didn't go bowling, Jim bowled really good last night without me there. He shot a 714 series with games of 266, 193 & 255. I'm so proud of him! This is his first 700 series since we moved to Michigan almost 9 years ago! His last one was in Virginia when he shot a 736 series. Congrats babe :)

Have a wonderful Wednesday,
