...yipppetty-yah and thrice!!! I am doing a right old happy dance here because I can finally tell you all about the brand new challenge that will be starting next Saturday. When Tim Holtz first released his Compendium of Curiosities book, my lovely friend Linda Ledbetter came up with the best idea... have a challenge based around every single technique in the book. I fell madly in lurves with the challenge from the start - it ticks all the boxes: gets you inky, gets you creating and gets you trying new, or indeedily, revisiting old techniques and it brings you into the World of Distress. I was gutted when the challenge came to an end.. and then over the moon when Tim released his Compendium of Curiosities 2 book. And yes, lovely Linda set about another challenge, this time based around Book 2. Earlier this year, Tim released his third book in the series... and again, lovely Linda is planning a challenge for this one too. BUT! This time it is a little different because she has invited a few peeps to join her on this creative journey through Tim's book, and they are called The Curiosity Crew...
And... I am soooo excited and honoured to tell you that I am one of those lucky peeps! For all the details on the challenge, HERE is the link to get you there. And, in case you haven't seen Tim's books... HERE you can see it.
Let me tell you about the Curiosity Crew! When I went to Ranger U I made some lifelong friends: Linda, Candy, Cheryl and Yvonne... and when we went to CHA last year, we were joined by Anita, Marjie and Susan... and together, we are now The Curiosity Crew. We will be taking part in the fortnightly challenges, which will work their way through each technique in the book but not in order, (keeping it exciting so you will never know what is coming next) popping around to visit you if you have joined in and generally having the time of our lives playing along with this fabulous challenge. For me, it cannot come quick enough! As you all know, I love all things Distress... indeedily, the Duke of Distress himself is someone whom I look to for inspiration. Even if you have never picked up a Distress Ink in your life (if you haven't, why not!! Go do it now!!! lol) this challenge will cater for all levels of skill, beginner through to advanced crafters.
I hope you will be able to join in with the challenges... oh and I nearly forgot to mention! The challenges have sponsorship from Inspiration Emporium and Funkie Junkie Boutique! You know what that means right? Prizes!! And, I also happen to know that Tim & Mario have donated a tonne of cool prizes too! So! Are you feeling Curious? The photo's in this post are of tags I made during the last Compendium Challenge... I shall away now, all this excitement has me all giddy! Thanks for looking... TTFN
