Precious Piecings Alter It Challenge

Have you seen the really cute
Well Lisa has started up a challenge blog and the first challenge is
Alter It
Im so glad to see Lisa starting up a challenge blog I have been collecting Lisa's patterns for a couple of years and have over 300 of her awesome patterns at the moment and growing. I was so floored the the other day when Lisa asked me to join the team. I felt really honored to be asked I couldn't say no after being a fan of her's for so long. I had just left another team because of accepting a part time job but there was no way I could pass this up, I guess sleep is over rated anyway.
 Paper piecing is how I started all this crazy crafting madness.
When Anna from More Paper Than Shoes was having another Ustream class Saturday night I had knew that her daisys she was teaching that night would be prefect for this basket. Anna was using a hat for the class and after searching 6 stores NOT to find a hat I found this really cute basket and I'm really glad now I didn't find the hat because this came out so much better than what the hat would have been for my
 #472 Sunflower Fairy.
My #472 Sunflower Fairy was made with card stock and all the edges were Inked with Colorbox Ink. My eyes I used are from
 The Beary Scrap's Beary Sweet Printables. I also used Stickles on her skirt and wings. I also added some Kaiser Craft Pearls and some Butterflies from Flora Doodles. My daisys are punched from Marvy Punches and Inked with Distressed Ink Vintage Photo. Some of my leaves are a die from Sizzix Branch w/leaves. I also added some floral pics I got from Michaels.
Now Lisa has been selling her patterns for years and I know some of you have got to have a few in your collections.
So lets see what you can make and enter it ---HERE--- on the new Paper Piecings Challenge Blog and become a follower while your there.
