Default SEP12VSNP ~ Sat. Sept. 22, 2012 ~ 10pm EST ~ Back to Basics

Title: Back to Basics
Hostess: Mit240z (Michelle)
Keyword: SEP12VSNP
Day/Date: Saturday, September 22nd
Time: 10:00pm EST

For the final challenge were going to go back to the basics and one of the first things you learn are your ABC's. My challenge to you is to create a card or project using something that starts with the letters A, B, and C. It can be an image, color, embellishment... whatever you can think of!

Here's some ideas to get you started:
A- Autumn, animals, apples, angels, ants
B- Buttons, bows, blue, black, brown, butterflies, books
C- Christmas, colored pencils, cookies, cocoa, coffee, clouds, chocolate

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

REMEMBER...
1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday September 24th.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, SEP12VSNP, when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this thread to be sure your creation is seen.

Hi everyone I'm just going to get a cup of tea and a bicky, starting to feel a bit hungry. I'm hoping the rest of the family will fend for themselves for lunch.
Back soon

Thank you Michelle! I think it's probably hard sometimes, to go last but you thought of a cool challenge!
