Dr. Monday M.D. I'm forever altered!

Good morning all!
 I've been working ahead to have posts scheduled as my summer is proving to be quite busy. I love to work ahead anyway so that I'm not caught short or trying to pull together a project at the very last minute.
 If you haven't been shopping at Magnolia-licious store lately, please don't wait. This new collection "Year of the Animal" is just so precious it will sell out very quickly. Diana also has some new dies, flowers, leaves, peppers, grasses and stems which are all new in her store.  Drop over and check out all her cool stuff.

 I'm presenting to you this time around three projects which I have altered.
 This first one is a little watering can which I purchased at Michaels 50% off clearance shelf. I have filled it with jelly beans, put a little piece of tulle over the top to hold them in, added a little bow and then made lollipops to stick into the can.
Here is A18 Tiptoe Tilda.  The sentiment is from SU the butterfly stamp is from Stampabilities.  I used Spellbinders Classic Circle and Lacey Scalloped Circle dies.  Of course my image is colored with Copic Markers.  I also use MicroGlaze by Judikins over all my colored images.  You just rub it in and it seals your paper from staining. 

This is a small tin jar which contains "solid" hand lotion.  I purchased it at my local quilting shop and altered it a little.  Just a little!  This is A8 Tilda with Elsie Lamb.  Sooo cute!  
This is a side few of the little tin.  I've colored with Copic markers and used SU card stock to layer my image.  Again, I finish my project with MicroGlaze to seal my work.  Since it's a bit waxy you make it the last step as you can't color over it.
Here is the tin opened and you can see the hand "lotion" inside.  It really works well to soften your dried hands and it smells WONDERFUL!  I will keep this in my purse!

Isn't this cute?  This is a little milk bottle, also found on the clearance shelf at Michael's.  I has a cow and the word Dairy impressed into the side of the bottle which gave me the idea to use #418 Little Miss Moo Moo.

Here is the reverse side of my tag.  The sentiment is computer generated.  The card stock is SU and the little hearts are a small punch I've had for years.

Here is a closer look at Little Miss Moo Moo.  She wasn't too hard to color, but I will admit that I had to goggle to see where the black spots would naturally be on a cow.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  Your comments are always very appreciated.

Many Blessings,
Enjoying the journey,
