All Things Altered Blog Hop!

Hello friends!  I am glad that you made it all the way to my blog for the "All things Altered Blog Hop" Hosted by Pam from Scrapbook Flair!  If you chanced on this, well, you are in for a treat!  Feel free to hop back to the beginning and start over.  I will have a full list of the blogs at the end of my post.  (Also there is a freebie..so read all the way to the bottom!!)
We have some lovely sponsors that have donated some product to a lovely winner.  A special thank you to:
I have been working on this project for quite some time. I didn't really know in the beginning what I wanted to accomplish with it, but when all is said and done a little bits of me and private memories are included.  I plan on adding more things as time goes on.  Because...life goes on.
I used a Tim Holtz Configurations box and covered it in paper using the Ranger decoupage medium.  I added some fun hardware for corners and legs.  Most of the hardware came from the Tim Holtz line.  Love the touch they added.

Each little space holds a memory for me.  The mini tea set is in memory of my mother. She always told me that tea will taste much better you drink it from a pretty cup. The little pinecone was a from a walk I took in a forest outside of a little village south of Stockholm, Sweden.
The rock was something I picked up when I visited Helsinki, Finland. The other spaces hold special memories about people and places dear to me.
I hope you liked this project I made to share.  Please leave me a comment if you do and I would be so happy if you decided to become a follower today.  Your feedback really makes my day.
Most of the items and embellishments used on this project came from my 2 favorite online stores.
As a very special bonus, if you do become a follower today and leave me a comment that you did, I will send every person a free digi stamp from Shelley Bean Stamps.  Be sure to leave me your email address so that I know where to send it!  If you are already a follower, that's wonderful!  Just leave a comment and you can have the free digi too.  This digi is brand new and never before released.  It will only be free during this hop June 29-30th!
New Digi!  "Shopping Sheila"
Please hop back to the very beginning of this hop to see how you can win prizes from our fabulous sponsors.
And once again, here is the full line up!

Your shadow box has inspired me to start working on one I picked up. I am a thimble collector and when I saw yours with the thimble it was my "lightbulb" moment! Thank you so much!!! I love everything about yours.
