First Try: 10 Minute Craft Dash

Have you ever tried the 10 Minute Craft Dash at Pretty Pink Posh? I had not heard of it until this week when I was making my way through some blogs, but wow did it sound like a challenge.

- You get a color selection: This week is Red, Light Blue and Light Yellow
- You set the timer for 10 minutes and GO. 
For my first attempt...I set everything I could in my craft space so I would not have to move all around the room getting things. There were no rules about setting up with what you think you might use so I made sure I had out the right colors nearby.
When the timer started I did not know what I was going to do...I think I will pre-plan a little more next time. I made some strips using washi tape, Stickles and ribbon on top. I selected a stamp form the Artisan Tags 2 set from Pink By Design and placed it in the corner. I felt it looked empty and I still had some time so I added this odd brushed ink around the edges.  Hmmm???? Not so sure about that now.
Total Time: 9:19 sec.
In the end I had 41 seconds left on the clock and I had a good time.  I look forward to trying again and hope to get as good as the DT members...they have some great projects. The 10 minute dash runs for a whole week so try it out.  It is harder than I thought and some of the projects displayed already are just amazing.  I might try one more time with this color set.
