CC3 Challenge #6

CC3 Challenge #6 has been completed and ready to post for 24 hours now! I waited until today to post because I had a busy schedule and need to make some posting time ... so here I am ( and have been for the last two hours ) sitting trying to trouble shoot my cellphone and lap top . As you will recall I had to revert to the Bluetooth method as my "service" ( or lack there of) for my cell phone dropped where I could automatically send things to my blog. I had found an alternate service as no one could figure out the "Why?" ... this service too was dropped with no apparent warning a couple of months ago ... sooooooooooo I have been bluetoothing . Surprise, surprise ... you guessed it ... my blue tooth is NOT working. So here I sit ... attempting to trouble shoot.  My guess is I will be changing to a much dreaded new phone ... with new service ( I can hardly contain the excitement... rolling my eyes the whole nine yards). YES ... my phone is antiquated ... I love my Motorola Karma QA1... I know you're going WHAT... they STILL have service to those ??? Okay ... stop laughing!
On a more serious note ... it may be that the battery (even though it had a charge) was not enough to Bluetooth... it is old ... I'm charging the phone as I post ... hoping it will work in time to make the dead line ... something like FIVE HOURS to GO...
Okay... now that you've had your laugh for the day ... on to the  business at hand...

CC3 Challenge  #6 hosted by the very creative Linda Ledbetter  http://lindaledbetter.com/2014/07/compendium-of-curiosities-3-challenge-6.html and jump started by the equally creative and talented Curiosity Crew is sponsored this week by The Funkie Junkie Boutique  http://www.thefunkiejunkie.com/Default.asp . Some lucky winner will be the recipient of a $25 shopping spree at their delightful boutique. To spice things up a bit there is even a Curiosity Crew's Choice award ... goodies from Tim and Mario !!!

Did you get  Tim Holtz's  A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III ? You still got time to join us for future challenges ... get an autographed copy ... you'll be so glad you did ! Okay... so I'm not gonna ask you anymore if you got the book (  I'll be asking you if you are enjoying your book?) . For those of you who already got yours ... YAY !!
Our Challenge #6 is  Altered Burlap Panel found on p. 37 . Now you know I WILL NOT be giving any instructions or techniques... BUT I WILL TELL YOU ... those burlap panels are so very cool. You wanna see how cool ...turn to page 37 !!! Oh and check out those awesome projects by the Curiosity Crew ... show em' some love too okay ! :)

FOUR HOURS FIFTY SIX MINUTES to go ... am I going to make it ??? (insert photo here... LOL )
A little positive thinking... be back with photo soon ... fingers and toes crossed ...
At 1 hour 41 mins to go we have a photo ... YAY ( my Bluetooth went wacky again... but I'm going with what I got )!

I can tell you with each challenge I'm loving more and more that I'm pulling out more of my Tim stash to use. I used distress paints; broken china, picked raspberries, evergreen bough and mustard seed,  distress markers; mustard seed , worn lipstick, broken china and wild honey ... such yummy colors ; distress  glitter... oh so fun !  I seriously played in my idea-ology stash; I used a stencil mark ( number 7 ), word band, decorative corners, framed alpha parts ( number 7 ), ring fastener. chit chat stickers,  wallpaper paper, Melange tissue wrap,  and that fabulous linen ribbon ... just way too much fun !!  The other misc. items were from the Queendom stash: feathers, flowers, green leaves and of course bling !
