So completely awesome! I love the ghost -- I never would have thought to paint the driftwood!

I love how everyone's challenge creations fit with their best talents. Very cool stuff!

I am sitting here chuckling as I look at your crafts. Amy. They are very clever. I never thought of painting the driftwood either.

Of course, I love the "beach" picture for many different reasons.

It was hard to be anonymous because we all have such distinctive styles. Anyone who knows us would be able to identify who did what immediately.

That was fun! Whose up next?

Wow! What great stuff to come back to after a weekend away! I love it all! And there's no way we could ever be anonymous with all of this (plus I couldn't figure out how to post anonymously). This was a great idea, Patti, and a lot of fun!

Oh, and Patti, I did wrap the wood with wire and created a loop in the middle to sew onto the fabric. For the toggle (let's see how well I can put this into words!), I strung beads on tiger tail, put a crimp on one end, then fed the other end of the tiger tail through the crimp in the opposite direction, so both ends were going through the crimp in opposite directions. Then I squished the crimp. Does that make sense?

Wait! K, did you make THREE things? the crown (which is very clever!), the box and the necklace? Overacheiver! :)
