Anything Goes Challenge No. 136: Optional Twist - Easel

Thanks joining us for another week of JFF (just for fun) creating and sharing!
On our last challenge, I did announce I would be adding a second prize for our challenge being sponsored by Rick St. Dennis. This is a JFF (just for fun) prize. The USA winner for the first package did not come forward so I've added some more goodies to the package and I will be announcing a USA winner for that packet tomorrow. Be sure to come back and see who won the Rick St. Dennis digis and my JFF prize!
Simply as a courtesy, I've listed three of the five items in the JFF prize:
Spellbinders die D-lites
MAMBI Christmas-themed rhinestone word stickers
Lawn Fawn small stamp and die cut set
If no one claims this JFF prize, I will continue to add to the baggie until postage deems it necessary I force them down one of my USA DT members throats! Ha! All of these are items that I purchased in duplicate by mistake and did not want to make a return trip to the store or pay postage to return them. So, in other words, things that I really, really like because not only did I purchase them once, I purchased them twice!! Ha!
Here are some truly inspirational projects from my 'Dream Team'. Please enjoy and join us in the fun and share some of your creative tidbits! We'd love to see them! :)

Before we leave, I point out that the winner from my JFF package did not come forward. So I've added more goodies to the package and I'll be picking a USA participant using Random.org. Please know that these items are not used. They are spanking brand new! Maybe not from this week, but never used or opened. Sometimes, I like something so much... I'll buy it twice! Ha! And I am sorry to offer it only to USA participants; however, I'm not the only one to be doing that and I know I won't be the last. The postal system is holding us all hostage! :-\ In any event, there will be TWO lucky winners announced on Thursday, October 19th. :)
