PHEW - now onto this week's challenge

Challenge 52 - RECIPE

Take something ripped;
2 papers and
4 embellishments

BUT there's a twist - four embellishments means ONLY four.
A two-layered flower with a charm/spacer and a brad for example would count as
ALL of your embellishments so choose them wisely!

Looking forward to seeing what you all come up with this week.

This week we have another amazing sponsor The Greeting Farm

We have one very cute Happy Chef Stamp set to give away to one lucky participant who will be chosen at random next week! Be sure you have your entries in by Wednesday at 8pm!
