And so the end is near...

We've come to face the final curtain,
What's more I'll say it clear, I'll state my case of which I'm certain.
I've had the bestest time, week after week with the Compendium challenges,
So here to end the ride, I did it
MYYYYYY WAAAAAAAY!
Ok i actually did it Tim's way as directed on page 67, but of course with my own twist.
I tried i don't know how many times to get a good photo but this was the best of the lot, i will try and get a better one later, It looks so much better in person!
OK second attempt at a decent photo.. Well i tried is all i can say!
***
I can't quite believe we have covered every technique in the book but boy what a fun time it has been,
I would say i'm sad it's had to come to an end but i have that sneeky feeling the lovely Linda has an ace up her sleeve so instead i shall say I thank you Linda for the past 35 weeks and i hope there are many more to come xxx
Stay Inky

Linda Ledbetter said...

Not only are you a wonderful artist, a fabulous writer, and a generous and wonderful friend, you ALSO quote Frank Sinatra, making you even cooler!

You did indeed do this "Tim's Way," and you rocked it, my dear! The beautiful patchwork design with the gorgeous embossing and soft colors is a brilliant way to approach this technique, and the stitching and flashes of elegant metal make this al the lovelier. The photo of your Mum is beautiful!

I'm so honored that you've been part of the CCC, Minxy, and I very much hope you'll be part of the next chapter! Thank you for being amazing!
