Scrapbook Flair All things Altered Blog Hop!!

Hello and Happy Friday everyone!

Today is our All things Altered Blog hop!  Whoohoo!  You have probably made your way over here from the awesome, the talented, and dear friend of mine Nicole (CanadianNickelScrapn).  I am sure you were wowed by her talent!  She is one rockin' chick!  If you have landed here by just skippin' around blog land, no worries you can take the All Things Altered Blog Hop tour anyway and go backward to get to the beginning, or just check out the order below, I have posted the list of all hoppers from beginning to end.

Today I have an awesome Altered object for you!  I was invited by Pam of Scrapbook Flair (our most awesome hostess) months ago to join in on this awesome All things Altered hop and its finally here!  Let me tell you, when Pam invited me I was so excited I made my first altered project... but I couldn't wait to show it off!  I had to make a new one since I had already shown my project.  I did my second one, then showed that one and the third and fourth off!  Back to altering I had to go!  Well finally here we were the week before the hop and guess what... I had nothing done!  OMgosh!  I had to attend to my family for dinner at about 6pm tonight, then headed off to the craft room to bust out my altered item!

So here is my altered item: Mom's Chef hat! My mom works as a chef at the Marriott hotel in Los Angeles, I thought this would be great for her!

I started with a plain canvas chef hat:

Spritzed it with the new Ranger Dylusions sprays:

Colored in my image; Spaghetti Christian from yours truely in Sepia tone:
Bottle Caps can be found here: Simply B Stamps.net 

added all my embellishments and viola!  Bon Appetite yeah?!


Here's my daughter Rio wearing the hat, cracking up too cause she said she felt like a dork!  


See the cute little spatulas?  

One more of Rio wearing the hat, still laughing!  LOL 

So how was that for an altered item?  I have also posted the three previous altered items that I had intended for the hop, but just couldn't wait and showed them prematurely and had to make yet a new altered item (not that I mind, I loved it)!  

So off you go onto the next person on the hop... Debbie!!  I am sure she has something magnificent for you in store!
