I spent a little time at retreat thinking about some nice and easy challenges for you all... I hope these fit the bill Very Happy

Challenge one - stash busting
Use some acetate or something at least vaguely transparent. I originally had some acetate butterflies but then I realised I was using that LO for a CC challenge... doh! so I have gone with bling for my slightly transparent item:



Challenge two - technique
We used some serviettes to create texture at retreat. It was uber fun Smile I would like to encourage you all to create texture using a serviette, tissue paper or fabric:


Challenge three: style
I always love watching anna create and her minimalistic but oh-so-precise-with-the-details style always inspires me when we are at retreat. Create a project (card / LO / OTP) with at least 1/2 left as white space.


Challenge four: use this quote to inspire you:
"The simple things are also the most extraordinary things and only the wise can see this." You may use the whole quote or just be inspired by it. Please excuse the fold in my book... it was having a little moment Smile



Challenge five: YIR - use a photo that is at least 6 x 4 (I know I tend to use smaller photos but it is nice to mix it up). I forgot to take a photo of my YIR pages but, rest assured, I am up to June now which is better than March which is where I was up to at the beginning of last weekend.

Challenge six: Create a Christmas card that has something cut out on it.



Have fun
Very Happy
