Hello Everyone
I have been taking part in the Supreme Scrap Tournament 2014 that has entrants from 13 countries around the world.
I has been four rounds of challenges and each time half of the entrants get voted out, and I have made it all the way to the finals and I am the only SA gal standing. So happy to be flying the SA flag :)
Here is the brief for the final round...

Welcome to our grand finale!
We started with 212 participants in round 1 and now there are only 10 of you scrapbookers left.
The last challenge is a supreme scrap challenge!
This challenge is a challenge consisting out of 2 steps.

Step 1:
1. Collect at least 10 different materials/objects that you would normally throw in the trash!
(So collect stuff that you can’t buy in a store as a craft element/embellishment.
Examples are: labels of clothes, paperclip, aluminium foil, napkin, piece of cloth.)

2. Collect a minimum of 4 sheets of scrapbooking paper size (30,4 x 30,4 cm)

3. Posting your choice:
Make a photo of these objects and the sheets that you choose and post them in this thread before Tuesday, March 25, 21.00 CET Monday, March 24, 20.00 CET (on request of one of the finalists)
Number the elements and the papers and write this in your post.

We will tell you about the rest of the challenge after you post the photos!
Please make sure your photo is there in time in order to proceed to step 2

So here is what I have collected.

My items are:
Paint left over from painting our bar.
Builders tape from same revamp.
Paint chip from same job.
Clothing tag from Hang Ten.
Feather from feather duster.
Twine from parcel.
Doily from Baby Shower tea.
Peg from gift bag.
Tissue paper from same gift bag.
Butterfly cut from serviette.
Buttons from Jersey.
Lace from cushion.
Backing from a stamp set.

Papers are:
Corrugated card - wrapped around a gift.
Black Bazzill.
Cream Cardstock.
Junkitz - Dog collection.
Junkitz - Fall collection.
Bo-Bunny's - Lunch Snack vine. (double sided)

Watch this space for the next step.
