Thank you for visiting my blog, so came over to see what you are up to. WOW!!!! I can not believe how much you have completed. You really went all out challenging yourself.

Tonight I am playing with paint, kool aid and recycled card board. Card board is for a challenge I want to enter. I plan to post a tutorial on my web site for the different methods used to alter cardboard. I decided to try dyeing the colors with paint pigments, acrylic paint watered down and kool aid. We shall see what tomorrow brings.

Not sure if you visited our challenge blog.

Tell your friends 2 Rak"s up for the month of May. Hope you play along with us!
