Well, it was a crazy, VSN weekend. Due to the number of entries, I think it was a great success!
Winners are announced tonight at 9 eastern time. I know my kids are waiting to see if they won any of the kids challenges. Only time will tell now!

This was done for my friend, Jen's challenge. It was encaustic art. (Her blog is too the side bar, let me warn you now...she's crazy) Now, it seems I had a problem with following directions on the weekend and was a victim of procrastination........so i really didn't do this right. but I am happy with the results.
Jen is excellent at using melted wax and the tip of an iron to make these fantastic scene's. Well she thinks that she is short when it comes to patience. That was too much for me, so i just melted and smooshed. I like melting things. I think the Crayola's shake a little when I walk by. :)
So i may not have done it right. But I love what i did!



I am really wanting to do this technique again soon.

It's no secret that I am a Harry Potter Fan. My sorting hat can tell you that! I jumped at the chance to use these stamps to do my friend Sharon's challenge.(Sharon's blog is on the side too, but she is sane!) It was make a magic themed or magical card. This was so much fun! I used a simple color scheme and glitter. I was really pleased with how this one turned out! Remember Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is out July 21st/07.



This last card...the challenge was to make chipboard buttons. I covered mine in Basic Grey's Blush paper. I love these papers. The card just makes me feel happy. I need to get me some more or the organza ribbon though.

I had an amazing time with VSN. Being a coordinator was the best especially when you have a great team to work with. I can't wait for the next VSN and hope that I can be a hostess this time around!
