Rose Challenge

From the Time Warp Art Retreat in Austin Texas. Rose sent via Annette a white shopping bag full of ribbons, lace, whatnots, paper – a real assortment of goodies. The challenge was to use as much as possible in a project. We all loved looking through the treasures and a few of us started on it that very afternoon, some in secret back in their rooms {wink}. By the time we were wrapping things up on Sunday night only three of us were done, not finished, with our projects. Dar made a nice coordinated journal with pockets and tags – love; Jean made a lovely journal with the 12 x 12 papers folded all special like with pockets – love…

And me I took the 12 x 12 and folded them ¾ of the way, used ribbon to tie them into the folded bag journal. Added pockets to some pages and as I was taking pictures I found that even though I used a ton of the product I had a lot of blank pages.

And here for your viewing pleasure is my done (not finished) journal

And finally my prize! Thank you so much Rose for the Challenge bag it was fun playing with and I do believe it will continue to be fun to journal in.

Jamie, it was so much fun looking at your masterpiece. And even more fun just meeting you! You were one of the main highlights in my memory of the trip. Am hoping we get to have lots of fun times together online or in the other "real" life. Hugs to you and your great hubby.
