CC2C #111 & 12: Configuring Challenge!
So, this is the 2-week Configurations Box or Tray Challenge from Linda's Studio L3,were these last two weeks we explored pages #33 & #34 of Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities Vol. 2. Now, I origianlly planned on my small configurations box, but the sections looked too deep and narrow for my theme, butterflies and birds, wings and hopes..and I wanted to use reds to go with my new office once the new association building is finished. So I went and got the tray. Then before vacation I started gathering and making things to put in the tray. I thought I was golden! I still had time to select papers and get them cut before we left for the Cape. And you got it...couldn't decide until we got home today at 2:30...nothing like a deadline to make a decision.
Now, I thought I had items for the two empty boxes, but for the life of me I couldn't find (or remember-and I'm only 5 days over 50!!) them so I'll fill them in this weekend. And I'm not so sure about the butterfly border. The bottom right is chalkboard paper, but I couldn write neatly with chalk to save my life, so I stamped the quote with chalk inks...it came from a play our high school did in a competition, where I was the flute accompianment, can't remember the name, but I'll never forget that line!The three jars of semi-precious stones I picked up at a mine in North Carolina. So glad I found them!!
I still want to do the box, but I did orginally earmark that for a Christmas theme, so while I'm on a roll, I might just get that started as well.
OK, pictures loaded, forgive any typos..and while it's too late to join this week, check out Linda's pad every Friday morning, where a new Compendium Challenge awaits! Have a great weekend everyone!
