Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge!!

I've been waiting to be able to announce to you that I have been invited to help host a new challenge from the lovely Linda LedbetterCompendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge!!  Beginning April 26, Linda, et al, also known as The Curiosity Crew, will issue a challenge from Tim's newest technique book, "Compendium of Curiosities 3".  (Tim Holtz has technique books???  You bet!  Check them out all three volumes here.)   The challenge works like this:

The first challenge will be posted on the CC3C page on April 26.
  • A new challenge will be posted every two weeks thereafter.
  • Challenges are not posted in chronological order from the book; we'll keep you guessing!!
  • There will be PRIZES, i.e., GOODIES, i.e. SWAG!!@!@!@!  This is a sponsored challenge from the generous folks at Inspiration Emporium, Funkie Junkie Boutique and Mr. Tim Holtz himself!!!
  • Technique instructions won't be posted on any of the hosting blogs.  You'll want to find those in Tim's book, available at Rocky Mountain Memories.
  • Participating hostesses will post links on their blogs for the rest of the Curiosity Crew, so you'll be able to find them all easily.
  • More instructions will come on the CC3C page next Saturday, April 26.  
I have it on good authority that the first challenge will be an good one for you to create and participate, so be sure and check it out on April 26.  You may already have the goodies you need right in your studio......

One of the things I'm most excited about is the chance to direct you to blogs from some of the most amazing, creative, talented, BEST friends I've ever had.  Linda Ledbetter, Susan Mostek, Candy Colwell, Yvonne Blair, Hels Sheridan, Annette Green, Anita Houston and Marjie Kemper are hosting this challenge.  You are going to be blown away by their creations and I hope you'll bookmark their blogs for viewing pleasure.  Meet your Curiosity Crew on  the CC3C page now!!
