SOS #203: Play Misty For Me

It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge. This week's title is Play Misty For Me*, and we'd like you to use a mist or spray product of some kind. It can be a store-bought spray or one of your own making.

Stumped? The easiest spray I've ever made was to take a mini mister, fill it about 3/4 with water, add some Perfect Pearl powder, add a small bead or pearl to help mix it, cover, shake, and voila: shimmer spray!

Here's how the ladies have interpreted this challenge:

Jessi
Alica
Donna
Leslie
Lauren

Deena

Now it's YOUR turn. Go into your stash and find a spray or mist you may have forgotten you owned. Or heck, use one you use all the time -- it's still stash, right?  And if you don't have one, then make one! Then use it, and come back to link us up below so we can stop by and see what you've made.

The link-up will be open until Monday, June 1st (gah, June!) until 11:55 pm EDT. Please limit your total number of challenges to 13, including ours.

*Okay, I looked up the movie Play Misty For Me, and it's creepy. Probably why I never saw it. We don't do creepy here, just fun. :)

SOS #201: Oldest Washi Tape

Happy Tuesday! It's time for a new challenge, and this week we'd like you to use your oldest washi tape. Yes, oldest. Some of us have vast collections of washi tape (*ahem* *cough*) and some people have none.

No real washi tape? No problem! There are other options if you don't have any old washi tape: you could use washi tape stamps, or follow one of these tutorials to make your own:
