Alpha Challenge 'S'

The letter 'S' is the challenge over at the Craft Barn so I went for 'Skeleton'.



I have been waiting for a reason to use these stamps which are from a Company called Recollections.  I am more used to creating girlie or pretty pages so this was a challenge for me!  I used Pumice Stone, Brushed Corduroy and Antique Linen Distress Inks along with Coffee Glimmer Mist with Crafters Workshop Harlequin Stencil and Sheena Aging Beautifully stamp set for the background.  The letters are an old clear alphabet set, I can't remember what make.  The black stamping is Archival Ink and I just love the quote! Please pop over to the Craft Barn to see the other fab entries and Design Team pages.  My last page got chosen in the top five - that is three times I have made the top five of the Challenge - I can't believe it - I am so pleased!  Apart from the occasional card, my pages are the only craft I am managing at the moment.  I even had to buy my Christmas cards yesterday which I really wasn't too pleased about!  Sometimes circumstances just get in the way, never mind - hopefully I will be able to make up for it next year.  I hope you are all having a good week.  Thank you so much for visiting me - I am so pleased to receive your comments.  I will get round to visiting you when I can.  Take care.  Christine

LOVE that you choose to do Skeleton for the letter S. I love it when people do offbeat things for letters instead of Sun or Star or Strawberry. (tee hee, I did b*tch for a letter B swap once).
