I challenge you to....

Each month I challenge some of my cropping friends to alter something, or try something new - I've had them alter a mini domino, make a tag out of some given elements and last month I gave them a small jigsaw piece....I love seeing their faces when given the next challenge, some are pure horror!! lolxx

Whilst browsing in a charity shop recently I stumbled across some childrens big jigsaws. One in particular had 6 sections, so I decided to give 5 friends a piece each, they have a month to finish it and at the end of the month I'm going to put them back together, frame them and hang them in my craft room...there is no colour scheme and no theme, I just wanted a piece of each friends art!

so, heres my piece

The background is a mixture of all sorts, pink paisley paper, text, embossing, lace, bling, the face on the chalked stampbord is by cherry pie, the flower and centre are prima and the gorgeous saying on the shrink plastic came from Scrapz, not sure who thats by... and guess whats been daubed around the edges?? roflxx yep the ol' gold dauber! I should count up and see how many of my posts mention that item!!

Anyway, I sit up here in my craft room, creating away and all of a sudden it hit me! hard! you'll never guess what I've forgotten to do? say which way up the puzzle should be? I ask you? how flippin silly was that?? mind you I suppose I'll have numerous ways of hanging it hey? When its all back I'll take a piccie and share....

TFLXX
