Game On!

It is the 15th and that means it is time to Duel it out with some of my favorite crafters!

For those that don't know...we have two teams that each month get supplies from the team's hostess and we make a project based on the month's theme.

This month, in order to celebrate National Scrabble Week, our theme is "Are You Game?"

The kit which Jeanette sent us had:
Image ~ Art Impressions "Bingo"
DP ~ Tessa Collins Freestyle Collection
Embossed Paper ~ Tim Holtz Mini Bingo Card, Rays and Ticket (all on SU c/s)
Embellishments ~ Morex Organdy Ribbon, Prima Flower, Studio 18 Rhinestones and various buttons and brads.
We also each got a Scrabble tile with our initial on it!

The challenge this month was to use our kit in a new way; try something we hadn't before! 

That being said, I made an exploding mini album.  (The tutorial can be found here.)

 As you can see, I have included both open and closed shots.
 I will admit the I did omit the word BINGO and the bingo card from the immie because I have it in my mind that this will be used to celebrate a new baby!  I also substituted ribbon because I needed a longer piece to close the album with!

Make sure you check out the rest of the DUEL!
We all love luv!

Nice project! I've never made one of those. Seems like a great way to keep little pictures or phrases.
