Altered Project: Be You Photo Tray (Little Yellow Bicycle Paradise)

I don't do altered projects very often, but sometimes a design team call requirement (in this case, Little Yellow Bicycle) helps to push me outside of my usual comfort zone. I actually bought a couple of items to alter, but the photo tray ended up being more my style. I'm really pleased with the results. What is your favorite item to alter?

Here's a detail shot of the top left section. I snipped the heart off of a stick pin to embellish the "0":

A closer look at the bottom right panel:

And here's the bottom left section. The top portion (floral border with scalloped trim) is pop dotted to give it some dimension: 

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!
