TOFF Tell Me a Story Challenge

Okay, so could I be any later? The new challenge at TOFF is up already and here I am. I couldn't miss it though so... I have to admit I'm an Octopode Factory junkie. Seriously, Lily could retire at age 17 on what I've bought from her store. I love each and everything she does and my biggest probelm with her "Tell Me a Story" challenge was deciding which images to use. Then Dh wanted to go out to lunch. Hmmm...he's leaving on a 4 day backpacking trip so...I'm late AGAIN! Obviously, I've used the Octopode Factory Wizard of Oz images along with Whimsicle Dream Castle and Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I collected and read all of the Oz books as a child and still have them. I used the Spellbinders Grand Labels Four to make a wall hanging.

The special sentiment is spelled out in Alpha Beads and a button heart. The yellow brick road is a freehand cut, embossed with the Tim Holtz Bricked folder, and some doodling.

There's a bit of dimension too. The TOFF challenge this next week is Spots and Dots. I hope to do better with the time factor, but sometimes there are not enough hours in the day. Still happy to have completed it, though. Octopode is a fave of my BFF. This one's for you. xxx


  1. OOooooh! Very cool Donna!
    Hey, do you have the Spellbinder machine thingie? The one that uses the BIG dies? Let me know whatcha think of it. I wanted one but was sad they only had a few dies for it.....dang, I wish I could remember the name of it!
