Why am I so excited? (plus some altered art)

I am so excited because I am today's featured artist over at Distinctive Touches! You may recognize this blog from the Thursday Throwdowns I do almost every week.
I am thrilled, amazed, embarrassed, shocked and mostly EXCITED that I was chosen. Please check it out!
I have been really interested in altered art lately, and yesterday's challenge at Splitcoast Stampers was just what I needed to get my butt in gear for these 2 frames. The first one is actually a shaker, with cute spiders inside! (That was actually mike's idea). The second is a small frame from Wal mart.
Both projects use goodies I got from my halloween swap partner, Connie!
