the other day, overcome with virtue, i decided to empty the dreaded junk bowl for the first time in...well, in a while...and then it hit me: what if i used all the stuff in the bowl...on one card?!
so what was actually in the bowl?
yikes. this might be harder than i thought! but wait: there's a lot of pink here, and a lot of flowers...hmmm...hey wait, i think i've got it!
i didn't use everything. the hula dancer & the matchbook are cool--i want to save them for another day. the fortune & the ribbon...i tried, but...no go. and i just could not spell anything using only "I-S-H"...so i snagged a few more alphas...the "HAPPY" is used, inside the card. when i was done, there was a little empty spot in the lower left, so i added a charm & a couple of tiny rub-ons. (first rule of any lauren challenge: creative cheating is not only permitted, it's actively encouraged!)
so here's the challenge: i bet YOU have a junk bowl, too! maybe not a bowl, as such...but a pile, or a box, or a particular drawer in a particular cupboard...somewhere... you've got little dribs and drabs of supplies from old projects, am i right? great! go get 'em, grab your basics, set the timer for half an hour (or, if that's normal for you, go 15 minutes) and see what you can come up with!
there's no prize, but there are rewards: you get a super-fast card,
yep--empty junk bowl! WAHEY!
