Farm Fresh Friday - Throwback Challenge #2!

Since our last throwback challenge was so popular we are bringing it back again, but this time with a TWIST! The throwback challenge requires you to break out your "old" TGF sets (which let's face it...aren't that old, lol). At the bottom of the post there is an "Exclusion List" which has the last several months worth of TGF releases on it. The deal is that you can use anything on your project BUT those stamps. So dust off your very first TGF purchases and make them shine again :0)

THIS TIME it's an ABC Throwback challenge meaning you have to make anything but a card! Bookmarks, altered items, notebooks, whatever you'd like as long as it's not a card and you use a Throwback eligible stamp!


I used the oldie but goodie Lolli Anya stamp!  I sterilized and altered a prima flower jar and filled it with M&M's for my neighbor's birthday on the 4th of July.  Love this Anya but too often overlook her so I was glad to break her out.  I was about to go all crazy and color coordinate the M&M's but then I thought that was a little overboard even for me and decided against it ;0)

I'm laughing at the idea of color coordinated M&M's. Such a sweet and cute idea Rachel.

Love Lolli Anya on your M&M treat holder Rach. It would have been interesting to see all those M&M colors, but choosing to go with the pink & green is your signature and totally cute. Your neighbor is so lucky!
