Hello postie

I had an unscheduled trip to the post office today to pick up a parcel.......woo-hoo my copy of Tim Holtz new book the Compendium of Curiosities II.  I was hoping to buy it a the craft fair at the weekend, but no one was selling it!!!!  I know, I couldn't believe it either, so I  had to order it online (and of course, to make it worth my while for p&p I ordered a couple of other bits and bobs!!).

Now that  I have it I can finally enter the challenge on http://studiol3.blogspot.co.uk/
They are on Challenge No 3 but this is the first time I could enter as I didn't have the book!!


This is the marbled stain technique (page 46).  Now, I also set myself a challenge to only use items from my scrap box....the box that is always on my desk in which I chuck all the odds and ends.....basically the bits I cannot be bothered to put away properly (yes, I am a slutty crafter, I admit it!).

It is certainly a great way to  use up scraps (I also need to mention that the challenge is sponsored by http://eclecticpaperie.com/).

So, two postings in one day...I think I need to go and sit down for a bit!!!!

Happy Crafting
