How's that for a mouthful?! Linda is giving us two weeks to complete the latest Compendium of Curiosities II challenge. So this is week 11 and 12 combined. As always, the challenges are based on the works of t!m and he and the wonderful Mr. BTS, Mario are also sponsoring this fortnight challenge with an amazing t!m Holtz goodie bag full of prizes. This challenge can be found on pages 33 and 34 in CofCII.
I bought this Confugurations box over two years ago. And it's sat. I didn't really know what I was going to do with it and was waiting for inspiration to strike. And when Linda said this was the week for the box, I knew inspiration HAD to show up! I had the wooden "J" and "S" letters (for John and Sue!) so that was my starting point. I covered the J in foil tape and distressed it using my t!m Craft Scratcher and a pen. Then I painted the whole thing using Claudine Hellmuth Charcoal Black and quickly wiped it off. For the S, I covered it in a scrap of blue and white dotted cs since blue is my favorite color, then distressed the edges of it. Then I was at a loss of what else to do. So I sat the box on my side table and stared at it for a couple of days. Finally, lightning struck! I would do different places we had been on vacations through the years. We've been able to take some great trips over the last 24 years. We have many happy memories of the trips we've taken.
