CC3 Challenge #24

Whew... CC3 Challenge #24 ... you ready ??  I can't believe it ...  The more I see of  A Compendium of Curiosities Volume III the more I love it ! In these challenges we are not only learning these various techniques and familiarizing ourselves with the Tim Holtz products but we are making lots of friends; and meeting some amazing artist. I'm so jazzed about this !! Tim Holtz has done a fabulous job introducing us to varies products and techniques.
Linda Ledbetter our awesome hostess with the cutest sidekick ever ... Miss Violet ; has given us guidelines to follow on our Journey. If you go over to her site http://lindaledbetter.com/2015/03/cc3c24.html you can see all the detailed  guidelines ( you really want to follow those ... it's not hard... well maybe sometime :) ) there are not a lot of them but they are important if you want to be eligible for prizes ... you know you want those. Our wonderful sponsors this week are The Funkie Junkie Boutique http://www.thefunkiejunkie.com/ . OMG I peeked over there this week... they've got some amazing stuff ... bought a smile to my face ( I'm sorta on punishment... cause I over spent on some Tim goodies) but it didn't hurt to look!  If you are chosen winner you get a $25 shopping spree ... woohoo !! Also the awesome Curiosity Crew has a Curiosity Crew Choice Award if you are chosen for that you get goodies from the man himself Tim Holtz ... Tim and Mario have provided our hostess with some amazing goodies for the winners! Okay, so to be eligible you must visit the blogs of all the crew members and show them some love !
Now for the Challenge #24 Remnant Rub Resist  found on p. 51 in YOUR book ( I trust you have one by now ). I love, love, love Remnant Rubs ... so you know I totally enjoyed this one. You will have to follow along in your book to know what I did... I'm not telling ...
My weapons of choice for this challenge were  Botanical, Numbers and Elements Remnant rubs ... did I mention I LOVE remnant rubs ?? I used the new colors cracked pistachio and  abandoned coral, along with picked raspberry and pumice stone for my color palette. It is so yummy!


Well that's all I can tell you without getting into trouble. So I'm going to leave you with one request ... COME JOIN US !
Oh I just want to Thank  all of you who sent  encouraging messages last week for my family and myself , I appreciate your love and concern. These have been some very difficult weeks for all of us  but through the grace of God we are doing well.  Bless Your hearts  <3
