CC3Challenge 12...

Welcome back! 
Can you believe we are on Challenge 12? 
I can't...this is just going way to fast!
I am having so much fun creating and getting to know some of you.
Seeing the fabulous creations you come up with each challenge is frosting on the cake!
You all are blowing me away with your creativity and ingenuity! 
This weeks challenge is being sponsored by The Funkie Junkie...they have donated a $25 gift certificate as a prize! MAKE sure you follow the rules listed here....I would HATE for someone to be held back because of a technicality.  Also Tim and Mario have donated a stash or lovely prizes to be given away each challenge as well!...so there is two opportunities to win!!!
(But you most follow the rules wink.)
This weeks Challenge can be found on Page 41 of Compendium Of Curiosities Vol. III.
You can still get that here if you don't have it yet! 
Okay so here we go! 
The picture is the piece representing the challenge.
I love that this is now on a canvas so I can use it as a piece of home decor!
I LOVE this picture of my youngest daughter. 
She is about five here...she is 19 now. 
Brings back so many memories! 
 I think saying that I am addicted to these lovely little burlap canvases would be an understatement!
They are so fun to work on and the texture it has is fabulous to create on!
Below is an up close pic so you can see some of the coloring. 
So light and airy...
Black and white photos are one of my very favorite things and to be able to change it up just a bit and antique it so to speak just makes my heart giddy! hehehe.
 Lots of things are popped to add even more dimension.
I think I am going to adore having this on display.
It is such a fun way to add personal memories into you home decor! 
So...I cannot wait to see what you all create! 
I cannot wait to see what the Curiosity Crew does???
I will be at a show this weekend, but rest assured I will be scoping it out from my phone or iPad! 
Hope you have fun with this challenge! 
I'm sure it will make ideas start whirling around in your brains..I know it did me! 
Have a great weekend and thank you so much for stopping by and all the lovely comments you leave. 
I so enjoy reading them and linking back to your blogs!!!
