Compendium of Curiosities Challenge Week 10

Our wonderful leader, Linda aka Studio L3, has taken us on a ride using Distress Stickles! The Distress Stickles I used are Scattered Straw, Peeled Paint and Rock Candy! Pretty much I added Distress Stickles to everything, but the tag and bling. The "Family" letters are punched and cut from Tim Holtz Lost and Found Paper, the die cut is TH Regal Crest, I fragmented an old 1963 family photo for the "Family Crest." The crest was embossed with of course one of TH folders. The zipper trim is even stickled!! Once I was done and put it all together, I realized I did not use one stamp!!!

Isn't Linda awesome for taking us on a weekly adventure? I am also so excited to have been the lucky winner for week 9. Huge thanks to Linda and Daisy. As soon as I hear from Daisy I will be going on a shopping spree!  Now that is cool!

Wishing you all a wonderful week. Your most kind comments are always appreciated.

Awesome, Terry! I LOVE this spectacular tag! That fragment-ized photo is wonderful, and the combination of colors and textures and that awesome die cut is perfection. This deserves a place of honor on the mantle, for certain.

Thanks so much for your kind words, but really, it's people like you who make this wonderful art and share it that deserve all the accolades. I'm just the lucky hostess. ♥
