Challenge #119 - Anything Goes w/ Optional Twist: Create Your Own Challenge

Hello, Crafty Peeps!
Well, it seems that Kathi is at it again creating a Fun New Grid for Our 
Create Your Own Challenge Series

We're Anything Goes but this weeks optional twist is to use the grid to create a unique design!   Some of you may find that projects you are currently working on already fit one or more of these combinations.   Choose one (1) item from each column.  Enjoy!

While you contemplate your design for the current challenge, let's take a look at last week's results!   We wish we could put you all up here!

Introducing Our New Resident GDT's
APRIL- JUNE


Pam DeChellis, Artist/Designer
I am a motivated person who simply loves to spend time in the studio creating. I love to find new and different uses for products and will often challenge myself to use a product in my studio that I have not used in a while. I like to think of my style as mainstream grunge- while I love the look of distressed and vintage projects- I tend toward using these in a brighter more colorful manner- and sometimes even clean and simple!

Erica Bruton, Artist
Hi I'm Erica. I live in a warm part of Australia with my hubby, two children and some chickens.  Ever since I could hold a pencil I have loved using them. I have been making cards for about ooh I don't know...8 years. I am all self taught with my colouring. Feel free to drop by my blog and get some hints and tips or follow me on instagram @ericabruton

OUR NEW RESIDENT GUEST DESIGNER
APRIL- JUNE

BETTINA L. of  Bettands Hobbykrok
My name is Bettina Leikvoll.  I live in Stavanger, Norway with my hubby and two girls aged 5 and 6 1/2. I am an Occupational Therapist by profession, but am currently working in the After School Programme with First Graders. I love to craft and have been doing that seriously since 2010. Other hobbies are gardening, bake cakes,  playing the piano, dance, sing and being with my littlest girls. I love watching movies too. I create almost everything but I do mostly cards. I love making fold and make boxes, and bags too. I have an addiction to making tags as well. I also love to use Dylusions sprays which will show on some of my blog projects. I use Promarkers for my colouring and have recently discovered graph'its so have started to experiment with them as well.
