Altered Container

Hello ... 
I hope you are well and having a good start to the week ...
My cold is easing and I'm feeling much better now ... Thanks ever so much for your kind wishes... It really cheers me up reading your comments.

It's a new challenge at City Crafter today and I am hosting this week ...

I saw this beautiful photo on Tumblr

... those prettily decorated buckets really speak to my heart ...

So the challenge this week is to Make or Decorate a Container
 It can be anything from a paper bag to a bucket!

I had a rather tatty looking container that I usually keep my fresh herbs in ... sorry that the photo is blurred but this is just to show you the "Before"

It was calling out for some attention ...

I know these are not herbs ... Lol! they're just for decoration

I used some images from The Graphics Fairy for this and printed them on Decal Paper

... and of course I had to use some artificial lavender 

This look so much prettier on my windowsill now

Our Guest Designer this week is the lovely and very talented Milagros - our winner from week 178 ... hop over to her blog and be inspired! 

We are offering a GD spot to this weeks' winner too ... so get crafty and come join us ...

Till soon
