Your what???

The new challenge is up over at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog.......

YOUR DISTRESSED/SANDED ARTWORK

Did they say sandpaper.......I love SANDPAPER. I've not used it much lately so I was oh so happy to pull out my Tim Holtz Sanding Block and then to let the fun begin!!!

I used some Tim Holtz ~ Retro Grunge papers, a bit of Vintage lace, Hero Arts ~ paper flowers, my new FAVORITE supply... Tattered Angel Glimmer Chips, along Olive Vine and Pine Cone Glimmer Mist.......

Oh and I roughed up the edges with my Distrezz-it-All, LOVE THAT TOOL, adding the special touch to the distressed look. I crumpled, spritzed, sewed, sanded and inked..........OH THE FUN I had!

The ultimate finishing touch was the stamped verbage, 

"LIFE ISN'T ABOUT 
FINDING YOURSELF, 
LIFE IS ABOUT 
CREATING YOURSELF."

I love this saying, right where I am in life, from the Tim Holtz stamp set ~ Mini Classics.

So......put your thinking cap on and join us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge Blog....you might just win a Prize or a Blinkie to proudly display on your blog!!!
Also, check out the other Design Teamies creations.........A-MAZING!!
