Chopped! Week #3


I am involved in the Chopped! Challenge over at Challenge Masters. I survived Weeks 1 and 2 and the "recipe" for Week 3 was posted this morning. "Use White, Cardboard and Stitching". The first two I was ok with but the stitching had me terrified. You should have seen me sweating while I was sewing those strips! My sewing machine doesn't usually cooperate so I don't usually bother. I thought about using the Sew Easy tool but I have to get in the shower and then go get the kids from school and I really just wanted to get this finished! Add to that the fact that the needle was not threaded and I couldn't see the eye of the needle to save my life! Took me 15 minutes just to get it threaded! Its not the best stitching....a little crooked....but its there! Chipboard butterflies and BLISS wordart by K&Co as are the shells, the "moments" sticker and the brown loopy border. The strip at the bottom that looks like sand is actually the packaging from the K&Co border I used!! Yay for re-purposing!  That qualifies it for the Fabulous Friday challenge at Frosted Designs - use something laying around the house! The "beach" sign is October Afternoon. Bling by Recollections and KaiserCraft. I used a dry brush to wipe white paint across the cardboard and then swiped a Tea Dye distress pad across the white paint to sort of mimic the dune fence in the photo. Flowers from my stash. My new FAVORITE layout!

What am I going to do after Wednesday? I go back to work and am soooo going to miss scrapping all day!! Alas, something has to pay the bills from all the supplies I want!!
