All I can say is it is a miracle this piece got done at all!
I will start at the beginning of my week with the announcement of the challenge. Distress Powders! Oh no.....do I have any of those? A frantic dig through my embossing powder box confirmed I did not. So yesterday I drug my daughter and her friend to my local big box craft stores (Michaels and AC Moore) and came out empty handed (well, not empty but no Distress Powders). My last hope was to try Archivers (a scrapbookers heaven). Because I have a severe paper addiction I avoid this store like an alcoholic avoids a bar! But I was desperate and I thought surely if anyone would have it they would. WRONG!
Disappointed and sad that I would not be able to participate this week I lost my desire to create anything plus I was exhausted. Note to everyone...don't take 10 year old girls into a craft store unless you are crazy!
This morning I decided to try one more place, Joann's Fabric & Crafts. I called first this time and low and behold they not only had some, they had 6 colors to choose from AND they were on sale! Ahhhhhh, the muse was smiling on me once again. So I drove into town and picked up 3 colors for under $10.
Now I know I said the muse was smiling but I have no idea whose muse it was because what I created doesn't look like anything I ever do. And I am not sure I did the powder right because it doesn't look that distressed to me. LOL! Oh well, at least I got to participate.
