Yesterday I participated in an one hour challenge over at Creating Keepsakes. I was a little nervous. I am new to that board AND this was the first time I ever tried to finish a layout in that amount of time! Plus my scraproom still looks like it did in the photo two posts ago!
When I logged on and saw the challenge was to use yarn on a layout I panicked! I don't have yarn! I have ribbon...I have string...I have fibers! No "yarn."
Then I remembered a bag of assorted ribbons that my oldest daughter had picked up at a yard sale for me years ago. She was so proud of this bag she had gotten for a quarter that I didn't have the heart to get rid of it. It contained lots and lots of ribbons and strings from what appeared to be the 70s...maybe 80s.
I quickly pulled the bag from my drawer and found YARN!
I remember seeing this type of yarn in a lot of school photos from the 70s...maybe 80s. Every little girl had them tied in their ponytails and dogears. The cardboard it was wrapped around had a price tag from MONTGOMERY WARD! It said 90 cents, but was marked through with red and discounted to 45 cents.
Well, as you can see from the photo it all ended well. I didn't win the box of goodies, but I had a blast! I even shoved all the "vintage" items back in the bag and put it back in the drawer.
I REALLY enjoyed the one hour challenge! I plan to join in on the next one too!
