City Crafter Challenge Blog - Old Stuff, New Look

This week's challenge at City Crafter, is to take an old project or old stash and make something new.

To be honest my project was not that old..I only got the dies for Christmas, but I wasn't happy with what I'd made ...here it is:
On both projects the milk bottle and cookies are MFT dies and the words and spill were cut on the Silhouette.The background was an embossing folder.  As well as rearranging everything, reprinting the writing and cutting 'add cookies' bigger, I also decided to make the cookies look more tempting by adding 'sugar'.

This week, our Guest Designer is Magic Flying Boots, so please come and visit us at City Crafter and see what she and the rest of the DT have made, before entering your own creation.

I'd like to enter:
Unstampabelles use something new - these were my first attempts with these dies
Craft Cardmakers - add texture - embossing and the glittery flakes
QKR Stampede embossing
Happy Little Stampers Dies  anything goes
Tuesday Throwdown sentiment focal point
