Some of my accomplishments this weekend

There were a bunch of really cool challenges at the Jingle Bell crop at Feeling Scrappy - these are some my completed challenges.

Crop Challenge #10 Wrapping Paper

Use four different patterns of paper (must be from at least two different manufacturers) on a layout (single or double page is fine). You can use anything else on your layout in addition to the papers.

Mine: I used My Minds Eye, Basic Grey and Fancy Pants Designs Papers

The challenge - Crop Challenge #6 Wrap it up!
Alter a box!! (ie Priority mailing box, small cardboard box, a metal box, an old jewelry box…be creative.)
Use at least five things from this list on your box (you can use as much of these as you want and other items, too):
Paper, ribbon, paint, ink, stamped images, buttons, chipboard, brads, flowers, eyelets. One last thing-Tell us what you plan to do with it. These might make great gift boxes for the holidays. The possibilities are endless.

Mine: Plain brown hat box from Target. Think I will use mine for a gift.
My five things besides the patterned paper were:
1 brad
1 flower
2 eyelets
2 chipboard circles

This is the top:

Challenge #12--Holiday Dazzle - Final challenge for the Jingle Bell Crop!!! This challenge will be to make your page sparkle, shine, and shimmer using glitter, bling, jewels, or anything else sparkly.

Mine - I used rhinestone brads in the corners.

Challenge #5 - Santa's Blueprint

It is sketch time! Create a layout using the sketch below. This is a quick and easy one!

The sketch by Feeling Scrappy's talented Jayne Jones:

Then another one of these fun treat boxes that I learned how to make from Split Coast Stampers.
