Sorry I haven't been posting this weekend... but I have been

cropping like a mad women for an online crop over at Pages in time! It's been a busy weekend, of card making, altering items, and today its onto a few lay outs. It has been a great weekend visiting with some ladies, making new friends, playing games (I hate hide and seek), and crafting!

Well here is a peek at what I have accomplished so far....

The first project I completed was a card for Hide and Seek, trust me I dislike hide and seek, but thanks to a great lady giving the location of the image away, I completed it, and here is the card!

Then I finished the Dare to Distress Challenge, for this all the papers used were from BoBunny's Mamarazzi Collection

Here is the front of my altered item for this challenge. Isn't it ever so cute!!!! I got this mini dresser at dollarama for a toonie! And now it looks wonderful... everything on this is distressed in someway,  the papers here on the front are all distressed and inked, the buttons have been sanded on the outside edge, the gems were covered with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in peeled paint. 

Here is a view of the front and one side, the leaves were cut out and then crumpled and distressed and covered in glimmer mist, then dried and I put Tim Holtz Vintage Photo on the edges (the edges of the drawers have Vintage Photo on them as well), there is also lace from my stash and liquid pearls!

Here is the other side, notice how the leaves wrap slightly around, the stamps are embossed and are from Close to my Heart.

Here is the back and the embossed side. I love the way the flowers and leaves go across the back of the dresser. 

And the other side and the back, I love the way the flowers and leaves all flow together around and down the dresser!

The top, where the flowers start to head down the dresser, there is also an embossed stamp here. 

I hope you enjoyed this project I really loved making it. Wish me luck when the winners are chosen, the ladies over there are all so talented!

After I completed that dressed I went onto the The Tag You're it! Challenge. This one was amazing, it had a few different rules then just to distress, there was stamping needed, chipboard needed, stickles, a handmade flower, distressing it was a busy tag! But I think it turned out great... well here it is.

Isn't it pretty the houndsooth (thanks Becky for teaching me that word!) paper is from Teressa Collins, and the stamp is from Kraftin Kimmy!

The final one I have to show you today is The Color Inspiration Challenge. This was from Becky and it was screaming for a match box!! (If you would like to see the color pallet image for inspiration the link takes you directly to it. 

So here it is for you... some of the papers are from the BoBunny Gabrielle collection the rest are random ones from my scraps (sorry I can't remember who they are) I think turned out ever so cute... I get to make another one for Martica's swap over at, but it will be a music themed one I am pretty excited for it!

Happy Crafting! I am off to work on some more challenges!
