a try at altered valentine mailbox's

Hello Friends, Well I thought I better post something tonight, it has been awhile since I have had a little extra time to get on here. :( I received my Stampin Up! catty today and wow!! They sure have a lot of new great stamp sets!! I just love looking thru the catty again and again. and wish and wish :) Last week when I was at target with my dd getting some supplies she needed for t.e.c. (teens encountering Christ) Kinda a teen christian retreat. I spoted these lil mailbox's in the dollar bins! I thought I would pick up a few and make a few lil gifts for my closest friends. Hey cant go wrong for a buck right. Well these are my first attempt at altering and I am satisfied with how they turned out. Let me know what you think. I still have two more to do, but am waiting because my lil guy Caleb wanted to do his at the same time. So we will be posting more soon.
Tonight when I got on to post this I see to my surprise, that Rhonda over at http://bumblcreate.blogspot.com has awarded me this award that I cant figure out how to put on here. lol I will try again in a little bit. I am thrilled to say the least!! Thank you so much Rhonda! your too sweet :) Now I am suppose to name 5-6 things about myself and then tag that many people for this reward!

G'DAY Renee,
Love, love, love your super cute mailboxs!
We can't buy them here in Australia but was lucky enough that my upline knew a lady in the US that got us a couple and they ended being quite dear due to postage and the money exchange lol and I just love mine, I don't think I could part with it lol!

Love everything you did to yours, soooo cute!

Thank you sooooo much Renee for the blog award means alot!
Have a wonderful week,

Beautiful can Renee. I received one of these from a blogging buddy last year and personally I was quite daunted by the work involved and decided I probably wouldn't attempt one, hehehehe I know, where's my creative spunk?!
