Hi: As you know I'm always looking for challenges. Lately I've been leaving things until the last minute. This isn't good because I tend to get into my projects and time gets away from me. This altered cover I was making for 2 challenges. OOP's missed a deadline, because I got into making the pages. ugh. Fortunately one of the challenges - Simon Says Monday Challenge ( http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/) is still open. This weeks challenge is anything goes. I altered this Tim Holtz cover using his Paper Stash collection. Hope you like it!! This is the front cover. This is the inside of the cover and some of the pages

Hi Everyone: Yep Halloween is right around the corner!! Since I live in a neighborhood with a ton of Trick or Treaters we are stocking up on the candy. I decided before the mad rush of getting ready for the busy night sets in I'd best get my October tag done for the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014. Fall is my favorite time of the year. So orange and purples for me. My tag show the spider going for the bottle of spider elixir. So the items I used are Spray stain- antiqued bronze, Ink- spiced marmalade,seedless preserves, and vintage photo on the edge. splatters stencil, archival ink jet black, texture paste, glossy accents, a mask sheet , Apothocary rem ant rubs, my stamp is Piosonsketcher stamp from stamper anonymous, alterations die cuts- tiny tabs and tags, and spider & 31 mover and shaker. Thanks so much

Hi All: A few months ago I got to take a class from Karen Burniston (Elizabeth Craft Designs) at my local stamp store Stamp Asylum. She was amazing!!! One of the items I fell in love with and had to have was this owl die. I made this card that I'm entering into Simon Says Monday Challenge www.simonsaystampblog.com/mondaychallenge/ This is a pop up card using the Lorna Label PopUp and the Poppy the Owl dies. Hope you like it.

Hi again- This is the 12th challenge for CC3C. Crazy!! this time we are using Tim's photo Tinting technique. You can do so much with this technique. I choose to make a large tag. The Funkie Junkie Boutique is sponsoring this challenge which is just awesome. The shoppe is amazing! For this challenge I used several of Tim's products; found relatives,stars stencil,distress pens(black soot,ripe persimmon, and dusty concord), mini distress ink pads (spiced marmalade, seedless preserves). cheese clothe, huge tag, flower and gems from my stash made up the rest of the tags. hope you like it.
Hi All: While on Facebook I was invited to join a group called the Craft Hole. It is more like a crafting community, so far I love it. I'm a rookie so I'm trying to feel my way through. There are administrator's that find and assign the challenges. I like this because it takes me out of my comfort zone. I've heard of ATC cards but it wasn't something I'd ever done. Here's my first attempt.
