Anything Goes Challenge No. 133 - Optional Twist: Recipe

Well, hello, everybody!
Thank you for coming back to join us for a new challenge! I have managed to gather my wits about me and my 'Dream Team' around me and we're here to offer up a new anything goes challenge with an OPTIONAL twist! We're using a recipe for this two-week challenge. The recipe is use flowers, die cuts, ribbons and pearls or buttons. Of course, you're welcome to use as many of these or as few as you'd like to use and, again, the recipe is OPTIONAL! 
As a thank you to my 'Dream Team' for all their support and hard work, I offered them up a GC to Aurora Wings. To thank Mitzi for helping me out with the GCs, I thought it would be awesome if my DT would share with us what they've made with their purchase! Although we are showcasing Aurora Wings, this is a JFF (just for fun) challenge... and just for fun, I've prepared a small package of goodies for a lucky US winner! I apologize about having to limit this to US residents, but with postage rates being what they are, it is what it is. So sorry! Here is a sneak peek of the prize:
Now to check out what the DT has to share with us today!

TOP 3: Challenge No. 131

Welcome, crafty bloggers! We had a fantastic turnout with a whopping 196 entries for our last challenge! Yay!
Don't forget! We will be taking a short break through till September 6th. We have a wonderful challenge planned for that day. As always, it will be anything goes but we will be adding one of my favorite twists! I'm gonna give you all a heads up so you can plan ahead cause I know I love it when challenge blogs offer that! :) It will be a 'recipe' challenge and the recipe is use flowers, die cuts, ribbons and pearls or buttons. If you chose to use the twist, you don't have to use all of these embellishments but it should be a combination of these items. Again... the challenge will still be anything goes and I have a surprise prize for one lucky winner! You'll have to come back to get more deets about that though! :) We will announce the winner and TOP 3 for Challenge No. 132 on Thursday, September 7th. Ooooo... what a suspenseful break! lol We hope to see you then!
Our last challenge was JFF (just for fun - no prize) and I want to thank each of you who participated!
Now for our TOP 3! Three members from my 'Dream Team' selected as our TOP 3 in no particular order:

Anything Goes Challenge No. 132

Hiya, fellow crafty peeps!
Welcome to Challenge No. 132 sponsored by The Paper Nest Dolls!
This challenge will run through till Tuesday, July 25th. We will be back tomorrow to announce our TOP 3 for Challenge No. 131. Then my 'Dream Team' and I will be taking a break until Wednesday, September 6th. But what a great way to go into a break! We will all be in suspense to find out who is the winner of the wonderful prize from The Paper Nest Dolls on Thursday, July 26th!
I really hate to take a break right now, but I was the victim of a spider bite that has just turned my world upside down and not because I'm hanging from the ceiling by some silken threads! lol :p The guilty suspect is a wolf spider and I had a really bad reaction. I was bitten on the left side of my waist and it swelled, burned and itched something awful. At first... now it's down to a dull, throbbing ache. Some days, it feels like I can conquer the world... other days... I think the world will conquer me! :p So anyway, I am hoping that taking a bit of a break to focus on my health will turn the tables and I'll be up and ready to resume life when it's all over and done with. Thank you to the three of you who took the time to wish me well! It did not go unnoticed! :D <3 I was touched you took time to leave me a kind word. :)
For now, please enjoy some creations from my Team and me using some super cute images from The Paper Nest Dolls!

Anything Goes Challenge No. 131

Welcome, fellow crafty peeps! :)
Thank you for joining Challenge 131 JFF (just for fun). Two weeks from today, we will have our challenge sponsored by The Paper Nest Dolls so I hope you will be back for that. After that challenge is finished, we will be taking a summer break. It came unexpected as you see, I was bitten by a spider! No super powers but because of the chemo I take for the chronic leukemia, I've had a really bad reaction to the whole thing and I need to take a break. Maybe when we come back, I'll have super powers then! Ha! Something to look forward to anyway. lol
For now, please enjoy some wonderful inspiration from my 'Dream Team' and me. :D
