Saturday's Workout - Altered Stuff

The Saturday's Workout challenge this week is to create "altered stuff". This started as a large tin that had been sitting around collecting dust in my closet. I used a lovely magazine photo of a tree as the background and layered birds, grass and this wonderful PaperWhimsy image in front. I added blocks with my initials on the bottom for added interest.

Chica, I always love your "stuff"!! :) And I love the "feet" for the tin -- I know they are your initials but they look rather "royal" and I was thinking along the lines of HRH!!! Well, you are the Queen to me!!
