These two weeks since the CHACB launch have gone by so fast…..we’ve been busy keeping up with commenting on the all the fabulous entries. I’m quite pleasantly blown away by the response….over 120 entries woot woot! It’s time to announce the next challenge…drum roll please…..

CHACB-blinkieChallenge #2: Let’s See that Hoard!
This is a Color Challenge with a twist. Pick the thing or things that you seem to hoard the most, and using the color scheme shown below, create a project that showcases your hoarded item or items. Do you hoard buttons, beads, ribbon, papers, stickers? Show your hoard, but only the items that match the color scheme! (Please note, you do not have to use all the colors in the photo, nor match the colors exactly. Just use the photo and the colors to inspire you to dig through your hoard.)

I can’t wait to see what all you clever crafters come up with! I’ll be sharing my project next week along with Team B.

New Challenge at Let’s Get Shabby


They’ve got a new challenge going on at Let’s Get Shabby.

This time it’s a color challenge. Here is a peek at our inspiration picture.

Shabby-Chic-ColoursFor this challenge we were asked to use all the colors….which I just loved…so soft and shabby.

Here is my project….a layout of my Niece Olivia.

IMG_1605IMG_1619I dry brushed these flowers to coordinate with the shabby color challenge, then layered them over a great little mailing tag, pretty pearly stick pins, bits of lace and pretty doily donated by my dear sweet friend Anna.

IMG_1611Another grouping of flowers to anchor the other corner.

IMG_1613Here is a lovely layered and Stickled butterfly.

IMG_1609I added lot’s of Stickles to this pretty vintage printout….and to the crown and butterfly. The glitter is a nice finishing touch!
