Two weeks ago after purging tons or so it felt, this is some of the stuff that I took to Waxahatchie for the Hoarders purge sale at the Crafty Scrapper . Did ell only about 20 items were left and I donated them.
This weekend I got to go to a wonderful Retreat with some friends (20)!
It was at a great place in Weatherford call the covered Bridge inn! Think I gained 50 pounds on Pat the owners wonderful meals!
While there tried to get caught up on some challenges and this was going to be a full pictorial of the whole process and Blogger is not co operating in letting me down load them so here is basic that got loaded after 4 hours I only thought I was going to bed early...LOL after only 4 hours of sleep last night! My eyes are really red!
 
 
The challenge for Limors Mixed Media challenge for September!
 
THEME:
"GIVING BACK"
Challenge Guidelines:
  1. Create a project of your choice -Canvas, Art Journal, Tag, Card, Altered item etc.
  2. Project must include at least 1 Recycled household item ( Example: Toilet paper roll, soda can, bottle cap, cereal box etc)
  3. Include at least 1 stamp in your project ( Of course we would love to see you use Unity Stamps but not required)
  4. Theme: this project must be for someone in your life that could use their spirits lifted or someone you just knew this would make a difference with if they received something from you. It could also be someone you know that has been active in your community and making a difference, you decide.

2 Unity stamps CT's tattered chicken wire and Something Within verse stamps
The verse I used on this one says
"Wait for the Lord,
Be strong and take Heart
and wait for the Lord"
It is out of Psalms
I used the patterns from several envelopes from bills a sonic bag and scraps from two projects that were left on the desk were I was playing at the retreat.
Paints mod podge and  blue Ranger spray and several used packs of rubbons and several colors of Faber Castell Big Brush Pens and 2 crafters workshop stencils! S0 here are the pics it did let me download tonight!
