Industrial Steampunk Altered Guitar - Before and After and the How To Before photo The finished Product......Yeah!! Ok, Im very aware that altered art isn't a lot of folks cup of tea OR in fact anything Industrial or Steampunk.  BUT.....its my cuppa tea! lol.  I think its pretty obvious from my blog that I dont make cards.  Ok I do make a lot of flowers but I thought I would show you something else I like to do.  ALTERING....Yippeeee!  And this is the type of thing I do like doing and I make no apologies for it.  Yes, my name is Loops and I'm a steampunk loving, altering obsessed Looper, heehee.

Ok Folks, we have our winners.  PLEASE READ HOW THE WINNER WAS FAIRLY DRAWN. My hubby picked the winners.  He doesnt know anyone on here and was in no way swayed by me.  I didnt look until he told me to look!  I didnt want to have to write down over 160 names, so I asked my hubby to pick from the computer.  To make it completely fair so people at the top and bottom had a chance he scrolled up and down the blog page without watching the screen, randomly stopped and then pointed randomly at the screen.  So wherever his finger fell that was the winner.  If he went between comments.....he tried again....and again!!  Until we finally got fair winners.  These names were picked completely fairly without me seeing. So without further ado..............DRUM ROLL............. The first BIG Blog Candy goes to.........Wendy from Flowergirl Cards And the Second Prize goes to ............Sandy from Sandys Crafty Bits Congratulations ladies, if you would please contact me through the contact
