Here is what I came up with.
Anthea's challenge - misting/painting, distressing and laying
This photo of us is from our recent trip to Turkey. I finger painted dots around the outside of the cardstock and also wiped some paint over the Chatterbox alpha title. I ripped up a recycled bag for the background that we got from Athens Hard Rock Cafe and the thin atlas type paper is from a Colorado shoe box. So a lot of recycling here. I also used kaiser embellishemnts and tickets, flourish with a bling flourish, carolee creations alpha stickers, button, mesh and a metal charm of the trojan horse. Oh and also the flowers are made out of the grip thingy that you get around coffee cups at starbucks.
Renee's challenge - go DOTTY
For this layout I used Echo Park Pattern paper scraps that I had, and stickers. I think the chipboard is A2Z Scraplets, which i painted 3 different shades of blue. I also used kaiser rubons and brads and I stitched around most of the pieces of patterned paper and cardstock.
Sara's challenge - sketch
Kerryn's challenge - scraplift a layout from the gallery
Here is the layout that I chose from the gallery
And here is my lift of that layout. I used Little Yellow Bicycle patterned paper and stickers, DCWV vellum quote, american craft thickers, carolee creations alpha stickers, tag, brad, flowers and resin rose.
