Hello, Friends,

I apologize for the delay in getting the challenge updated!  I have been ill with the flu and crafting was not in the picture for almost three weeks.   Challenge Number Six runs from 2/23 - 3/08.

 For their wonderful projects submitted for Challenge #5
They will both be invited to create Mystery Boxes for upcoming challenges.

Mystery Ingredients
(this can be any distress technique)

The Mystery Box ingredients this week are pretty simple, and, there is a cool inspiration photo from which to draw colors, lines, etc.  For example, the brickwork at the top of the fireplace inspired me to use corrigated cardboard for the cover of my mini album.  The clip with with the pearls was inspired by the lamp on the table beside the fireplace and my flowers are a loose interpretation of the vase of flowers on the table.
