Do It Yourself!

What a fun challenge we have for you at Simply Create!  The theme for the next two weeks is "Do it Yourself".  How fun is that.  Of course the challenge is open to  interpretation and freedom of creation.  Isn't that awesome.  I think that's one of the reasons I am so happy to be part of their DT.  Our creativity is boundless too....YIPPEEEEEEEE.  

Alrighty then, for my DT card I tried a brand new technique using melted crayons (new to me haha).  Maddie and I were lucky enough to learn how to do this at one of our crops.  Stacia showed us all how.  Thanks Stacia!  We had loads of fun doing it so of course we had to get some of the stash so we could do the same at 

The scene on my card is entirely "Do it Yourself" as are the flowers.  Gotta admit it's really fun to do.  It reminded me of being a kid again and getting in loads of trouble for melting all my crayons on the stove to make finger cots.  Mind  you I wasn't in trouble for melting all my crayons, I got punished for using the stove to melt them...oops, guess that turning on a gas stove just isn't allowed when one is only 5...lmao

If anyone is interested in trying this check out this great tutorial Splitcoast Stampers You Tube Video.   Can't wait to see all your wonderful entries.  Don't forget to check out all the awesome DT creations.
