Altered Challenge from the retreat

We always have a number of optional challenges at our retreat weekends which delegates can take part in, seven was the count of last weekend including a sketch challenge, a top 10 challenge, a mystery kit challenge and one of the most popular - the altered challenge. This retreat the object to be altered was a small brown gift bag.

It never ceases to amaze me the variety of entries we get to these challenges and this year was no different. Projects ranged from minibooks to lined wine coolers, from festive reindeer to spooky houses, from mini Calendars to miniature stages, not to mention some very pretty decorated bags retaining their original use.

As always judging the challenges was not made simple by the very talented delegates who gave so many options to choose from and all so wonderful in their own right. Jane's post on Halloween showcased her witches house a little further. The overall winning creation however was this one by Denise.

More retreat projects and photographs to share in the coming days along with another Thirsty Thursday challenge
