Everything But the Kitchen Sink Challenge #2

Are you ready for another Everything But the Kitchen Sink challenge? Good, because this month our fabulous hostess, Kelly Alvarez, has challenged us to use...wait for it...toilet paper!

Talk about a challenge! However, our talented design team has come up with some amazing and creative ways to use TP on your card!

I chose to create a toilet paper flower using my Nesties. I think it turned out quite pretty, if I do say so myself.

Check out what the rest of the DT came up with:
Courtney Baker
Kelly Alvarez
Kelley Eubanks
Lynette Kauffman
Winter Sims

Wanna play along? You have until Sun., Nov. 8 to link your finished TP creation on Kelly's blog. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Stamps: Best Yet (SU), Polka Dot Basics (PTI)
Paper: Taken with Teal, Aqua Mist
Ink: Taken with Teal, Versamark
Accessories: Nestabilities blossoms, Fiskars upper crest punch, Kaisercraft rhinestones, Charmin toilet paper

Heehee! Thanks for the giggle this morning Annie!! :D Although this has conjured up that old school toilet paper layering technique that I used to do all the time. I think I need to pull out the Angel Soft and do it again. :D Your card is soooo beautiful!! I love what you did with the flowers!! You are awesome, happy Friday my dear friend!
