Hello Crafty Friends!!
Each month Birgit of Crafting While I Wait blog and Marcia of Marcia's Stampin' Pad blog challenge one another to a private challenge. Their challenge is to create projects using specific products that they select - they each use the same products and then post to their blogs for all of us to enjoy. I look forward to their monthly challenges because of the wonderful inspiration I get from seeing how many ways identical products can be used. It has been the highlight of my month for quite some time : )
Last month they opened up the challenge to any of us who wanted to join and I jumped at the chance!! I was only a little disappointed when I learned the challenge for this month was to create projects using Papertrey Ink's "Tiny Town" Series. I don't own a single Tiny Town : ( so I figured I would have to wait for the September challenge to join in. BUT! as these gals are not only talented - they are SWEET! they allowed me to participate using my 3D products from Papertrey Ink's - "Petite Places" series instead. AND Marcia popped a Tiny Town "Sweet Shoppe" in the mail for me so I got to fall in love with the Tiny Town Series and subsequently will be needing to go get a JOB! to support my ever expanding Wish List! giggles!
Ok, so I'm gonna STOP "talking! now LOL (Yeah right huh?) and bring on the TINY and the Teeny Tiny for your enjoyment. I will list the supplies after each project for easy reference.
