Punky Scraps Challenge 23

Hello, all! As you know, I am a GDT member for Punky Scraps this month. Here is my take on Punky Scraps' Challenge #23.

Below is the description of the challenge:

The Team B gurlies have picked random techniques, products, etc. for you to combine and create something fun and The Team A gurlies are scrapping with them......are you confused? :) . Here is what the Team B rebels have picked:

Michelle - Use photos of items, no people.
Camilla - 3 circles
Elin - Use Turquoise
Mandy - Stitching (real or doodled)
Nat - Use Red.
Jess - Use 1 or more staples

Don't Make Me Get My Flying Monkeys Layout.  I used my Special Edition Scraps of Darkness - Over the Rainbow kit for this and I used all the "ingredients" set by Team B at Punky Scraps. I also combined a couple other challenges in with Punky Scraps Challenge #23, including the Technique Challenge over at (use border punches, color blending, and chipboard), and the Skeletons in the Closet Challenge over at Scraps of Darkness (photo of inanimate object, a famous saying to combine with the photo, journaling to explain the connection to your life). I used my We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Tool for the stitching, a bat border punch from EK Success, my Cricut Expression to cut out the circles, Distress Inks in Fired Brick, Dusty Concord, and Broken China to create the ink blending effect, and fussy cut the witch's legs and flying monkeys. The papers are Graphic 45 Magic of Oz papers and the background paper is from the DCWV Blossom Song Stack. I also covered the chipboard shoes in Glitz Stickles (Ruby Slippers). The photo is of a new stuffed toy that I could not pass up. I love the Wicked Witch of the West, and other villainous characters. I identify with them and always feel like they may not have been all bad but might have experienced things that made them so. We are all shaped by our decisions and experiences. I imagine villains are, too. And I look back on my life and am glad that even though I've experienced some awful things and made bad decisions that I have not turned into a villain.
