Default WT373 - Don't Stress, Distress! (5/3/12)

Welcome to the first Ways to Use It Challenge for May... May?!!? Where have the months gone???
As I stress about my vanishing year, I will challenge you to outlet that stress as you distress your project this week. Since we have enough stress, ANYTHING with the word Distress in it or looks distressed also works!

Don't forget to include WT373 in the keyword when uploading your projects.

You can see all the de-stressed distressing HERE.

Here is some fun inspiration from yours truly and Steph... Have fun!!!

I am hoping May will be less stressful than April was, but no doubt it will fly by, too.

Heart WT373 Sweet Cupcake

What a super challenge! I was able to re- recycle my Trader Joe's chocolate bar box- and use the ingredient list for my background. I also used Sizzix's Big Bold Cupcake dies, and some fabric and ribbon - here's Sweet Cupcake
