and the winner is...

Happy Sunday, everyone.  I stayed up way too late last night.  I was at a virtual slumber party at OWSE Yahoo group.  What fun.  Although I entered the chat room late & totally missed the first challenge, I had a great time.  I still have time to make something for the challenge that I missed.  We played bingo and had a couple of other challenges and just spent some time chatting.  One challenge was a drawer box.  I made the basic shell, but still need to decorate it. 

The third challenge was a bit crazy.  We were given a list of things we needed to include in our project and one hour to complete it.  The first one done, with a picture uploaded to the gallery and having everything on the list won a prize.  And guess what.  I won.  I finished in 30 minutes.  Since I have a tendency to play with techniques, or make something and then decide it doesn't work for my current project, I always have a lot of bits and pieces that are all ready to put on a project. 

So for this challenge, that is exactly what I did.  I grabbed a pre-made journal page background and scraps and bits of things on the list - dry embossing, wet embossing, an image, buttons, circles, die cuts, lace, handmade flower, trim, a key.  There were only a couple of things that I had to actually create.  I needed to punch out a heart, because I couldn't find one.  I needed a banner, so I cut one and wrote on it.  And I needed to add some bling.  I can't believe how quickly it all went together and actually didn't look too bad. 

I will use it in an art journal.  I did, however, add a little bit of doodling before taking the picture for this post.  I think that adds a lot.

I appreciate you stopping by.  Have a great week.
