Default MAR07VSNM 6:00 pm -Chat Thread- Survivor: VSN- Altered Container

Survivor: VSN

Fans of the show Survivor know the candidates have a "fun" getaway to a remote location. This VSN is your chance to getaway (at least mentally). The difference is that the survivor candidates have only their surroundings...you on the other hand get to design a survival kit to take on your getaway. Your challenge is to alter a container to create a survival kit for a special getaway for you or a friend. We've attached several samples to get your juices flowing. Immunity points can be earned for the following things:

List of items you would include in your survival kit (you can post this when you upload)
Coordinated altered items for your survival kit
And just because we LOVE patterned paper...using patterned paper on your kit

In staying with the Survivor theme we want you to cast your vote for your favorite survival kits. You can definitely vote for more than one in this game of Survivor: VSN...and we want to encourage it. The more comments you make, the more chances you can earn to win a special Survivor: VSN reward.

Happy Stamping!

Your Vacation Vixens for this challenge are...

Julee...aka Shadowcatcher...blog: Poetic Artistry
Cindy...aka stamp_a_licious...blog: My Inky Fingers
Jennifer...aka refinnej2...blog: oh wait I don't have one

You can totally do oit! We each did ours in 45 minutes...from our first cut to finished product. Patterned paper can definitely make it easier to get done in the 45 minute limit!!

Billie...you don't have to necessarily decorate everything in your kit within the time limit! You can also attach a list of what you would include in it so we can get some fun ideas!!

this was a lot to get done in 45 minutes. If I had more time, I'd add more details but I am pretty happy with it.

What a great challenge. I haven't stopped laughing since I started this. In the words of our beloved Jan Tink, "I love myself!"

Long driving trips NEED some CDs, DVDs (for passengers) or Books on CD to make the trip shorter. So this Travel Tunes package is a MUST for a driving trip.
