Don't fall off your bike!

Well here we are at Challenge Number 35. What a fabulous time it's been. There has been so much wonderful artwork to look at and be inspired by when I visit all those amazing blogs. I can't thank the lovely Linda enough for being such a fab hostess for this brilliant challenge. For me this has been a wonderful opportunity to try out techniques I would never have dreamt of using before and my sadness that it has come to an end is lifted by the promise of more to come.

Design Details was a great challenge to save until last, although making all those tiny holes has somewhat tested my post night shift vision!! ( several holes in fingers as well as paper). Thank goodness I don't have to live in the twilight zone for a few weeks now.Major use of my Lost and Found paperstack here, as well as some embossed Grungepaper, though this doesn't show up very well in the pictures. I think this young man definitely looks like an explorer so he'd have had the compass in his pocket, and the iodine is what his mum would have put on his cut knees when he fell off his bike! I can just imagine him going off after school with his pals and building tree houses, go-carts from old prams, and cooking sausages on sticks over a bonfire.

I'm now looking forward to next week to find out what comes next.

Susie, thank you so much for your kind words! The thanks go to you and all the other wonderful CCC participants-- I've been lucky to act as hostess to the people who are the mostest! ;-)

Your wall hanging is utterly fabulous! You're right-- that young guy most definitely looks like he's ready to explore the world and create his kingdom. You gave him all the supplies he'll need, from a compass to a cola! This is a brilliant work of art!
