Craftastic Challenge #5 (RAK): 7/16-8/15

Are you ready for challenges?

Here's the details:

Below you'll find 4 challenges.
2 LO Challenges, 1 Card Challenge and 1 Altered Item Challenge.
You are not being asked to do all challenges, though.

For each Challenge you submit to me your name will be
entered into a "raffle" for the monthly RAK.
So if you do one challenge you will be entered once, do 4
then you'll be entered 4 times.
This is just a way to Challenge you and give you the chance
to try new techniques.
If you have suggestions on RAKs or Challenges let me know
and I'll be more than happy to try to incorporate them.

Layout Sketch
For this one just follow the sketch and make it your own at the same time.

*Taken from, however the user name is
one I can't remember. I apologize.

~~Update: Sketch belongs to Beggahuna. If you look her up you;ll find she has a bunch of awesome sketches.

Layout Shopping List
Use at least 3 of the following items in a LO.
~2+ Flowers
~Large Alpha
~2+ Buttons
~Pattern Paper Background
~2+ Brads
~2 Types of Ribbon

~2+ Photos

(If you combine LO Challenges 1 & 2 your name will be entered an extra time, so instead of 2 chance to win the RAK it'll be 3.)

Card Sketch
Follow the sketch and make it your own at the same time.
This is a sketch from I love the sketches from there.

Outta the Box
One of the Ladies on Vintage Flaire just held a challenge to Alter a Coaster and make it a magnet. It's such a fun & easy project. Not only that but you're re purposing a coaster and making your fridge all cute! You can "acquire" a coaster at your favorite restaurant or buy a package of 4-6 at a dollar store. Here's mine to give you an idea. Of course I'll be making a new one just for the challenge.

Submitting your work is easy,
either post a comment here with the
link or email me a photo @
Just make sure to put in the Subject Line "Craftastic Challenge #5"
and the Title(s) of your project(s).
Challenge ends August 15, 2009.

Now for goodies!!
This months RAK is larger than any other I've put together. You ladies voted for a whimsy jar, but I over ruled that with a whimsy BOX! How exciting is that? The box stands a 11x3x13 and is nearly full with the goodies below. Not only is the lucky lady getting the items below but she's also getting extra items that I'll be throwing in during the next few weeks.

As of today a package of Thickers and 3 items from the
Martha Stewart Line have been added.

Donated Items include:
EK Sucess Postage Stamp Boarder Punch (Thank you, Mom!!)
Pack of 3 embellishment tubes all in Pink!! (Thank you, Vicky!)
Hope you all like it.

*If we reach 10 Ladies participating a
2nd RAK will be given, so make sure to tell your girl friends.

I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
As usual I'll be playing along too and will hopefully manage
to complete all four projects.
Good Luck Ladies, and happy scrapping.
If you have questions about techniques send me a message.
