BLOGGERS CHALLENGE #88 - ALTER IT, BLOG HOP DAY #3

Scroll down for a chance at Blog Candy!!!
Good day, Friends! My sick child slept through the night, so I feel half way human today! Praise GOD! LOL I did not do any stamping yesterday, due to lack of sleep and caring for my family. My husband took the day off to burn up some unused vacation time, so I am stamping and making him tend to the sick kids! I normally have some energy to do some stamping at night but this week it JUST DID NOT happen! I was exhausted and just rested.
Today is BLOGGERS CHALLENGE DAY!!! This week's challenge is to ALTER SOMETHING - so I used an empty BUILD A BRAD container. I have 3 empty containers laying here, so I thought I would use up some clutter. My 7 yo daughter is sleeping over at a friend's house tonight, so I thought I would make the Mom (who is a friend of mine) something to tide her over for a night of giggly girls. :)
It is also a RELEASE PARTY night and Blog Hop so I wanted to use the NEW RELEASE Elegant Blessings. When I saw the crosses, I immediately thought of my stash of Shrinky Dink stuff, so grabbed that this morning and created a "charm". I think this would be PERFECT for someone who wants to make bracelets and things.
Here is an image of the stamped and colored image on Poly Shrink before I shrunk it...
I used Fabrico Markers and Staz On, I also sanded the polyshrink before stamping on it.
Here is a close up of the "shrinky dink"
