Six Chicks Sketch Challenge #8


Unity Stamps and rhinestones that glitter.
Basic Grey wassail paper that reminds me of winter.
Piggy tales, pearls, urban prairie buttons
Warm, fuzzy dotted May Arts Ribbons and rub-ons!

When the mojo's gone.
When I'm feeling, like I can't make a single thing.
I simply remember my favorite Limelight things
and then I don't feel so bad!

We're not leaving you for Broadway! We're welcoming in the new DT members this week with a challenge featuring Our Favorite Things... from Limelight, of course! The sketch challenge this week gives you lots of room to use any and every product from Limelight that you just couldn't live without! If you don't have anything from Limelight, feel free to use what you do have! Feel free to interpret the challenge in any way you want. Want to scrap a page of your favorite family moments? Go for it! Want to bedazzle a card with all your favorite embellishments? We can't wait to see it! Just jump in and get crafting!
