Remember the Days - Challenge of Challenges

One of Flying Unicorn's Novembers Challenges has a prize where you can win the kit of the month. Since I buy their kit every month this is huge!!!!

The challenge is to incorporate 5 of their challenges into a layout. You can find their Nov. Challenges here:

I incorporated the following challenges into my layout:
1) Photo Inspiration (use red, yellow and green) I used lots of yellow as you can see, the green is the vines I made, the red is in the stars, and I also inked red on top of the brown on the cardboard base.
2) My Myself and I - The layout is of me :o)
3) Extreme and Intense Colors & Extreme Element - The bright yellow is the extreme color, all cardstock and cardboard were distressed (one extreme element), I also handmade the little brown flower from cardboard, and made a distressed cardboard frame (extreme cardboard) and I added another extreme element - stitching :o)
4) Heavy Metal - Handmake a metal embellie - I made the metal flower by embossing it with a flower embossing folder, cut it out, then inked it using TH Oregano and Red Pepper alcohol inks, added some yellow with a copic marker then added distress stickeles to the center.
5) Take a note - include a handwritten note, The rolled up piece of cardstock has a note in it saying: Mystic Villiage, 2010. I also added Journaling under the picture :o)

Be sure to head over to Flying Unicorn starting Dec. 1st! They are having daily tutorials and prizes! oh yeah!

She's Like Lighting in a Bottle

Flying Unicorn's She's Like Lighting in a Bottle challenge is to use a bottle, vase or vial in your creation.
I have been planning to alter a Kaisercraft Chest of Drawers for awhile. Plus, I had some Tim Holtz Vials so I decided to enter this challenge.

I needed something to store my baggies of goodies that come with our Flying Unicorn Kits..I always missplace them or forget about them after I've put up the previous months kit. So I decided to alter a Kaiser Craft Chest of Drawers. It will be perfect to store all the little things I tend to misplace and forget about.

I used the Riddersholm Design's Chantilly Dawn papers that came with the Flying Unicorn's November kit..(adore these papers!!!). Riddersholm Designs is a company from Denmark and their lines are to die for! I think Flying Unicorn is one of the very few..if not..the only US store to carry this line. The vials are from Tim Holtz. One is holding watch parts..(Yep I completely forgot I had those too!) lol..the tall vial is holding some hat pins, and I added a few purple beads in the small one to complete the look :o). I just love this Chest!! I have something to store all my tiny treasures!
