Thomas Kincaid Altered Planner ~ MMSC41

This week I had so much fun playing with this Thomas Kincaid Castle from our monthly sponsor, Cornish Heritage Farms. I decided to alter a monthly planner my hubby rec'd from a vendor at work. (See below). It's a really slim and nice sized planner, except that it was so plain and well... boring, not to mention when I tried to peal off the sticker from the vendor, I made a bigger mess of it. Not anymore! LOL!
The sketch at Midnight Madness this week is really a fun one, so please join us and play along! Also, this week, Jeri from Sew Many Cards has some really nice goodies to offer to our players. Be sure to check out the details at the Midnight Madness Blog.
Thanks for stopping by!

Michelle...I love how you really dolled up this plain old boring planner and made it a work of "heart". Your coloring of the image is purely stunning and I love the texture on the paper. You have worked your magic again to entertain and inspire us!

Bear Hugs,
Carol :o}

Michelle, sorry for the late visit. After these few busy weeks, I finally decided to stop everything from crafting for this weekend and reserve every single minute for myself to just enjoy visiting bloggers.
What a great idea to alter this planner and you made it look fabulous. In addition, a clever idea to use the MMSC sketch for that :o)
