Inspiration strikes!!

At the Play Day I went to last weekend with my new artsy friends, I picked up a whole stack of free CDs to make altered art with. Inspiration finally struck and here is my very first altered CD! It is a gift as part of the Secret Sister swap I just sent out with Swap-bot. She has a new baby boy named Jack and I thought this would be SO cute hanging on his door or above his crib. I hope she likes it! It was very easy - I used Tim Holtz paper forthe background and for the cutout letters and I distressed both with my Tea Dye Distress Ink pad. It took all of about 5 minutes to put together. I plan on making more as Christmas ornaments, with a longer hanger so they can hang on the tree. What do you think??

That's really cute. What a good idea for cd that have outlived their original purpose.
