This challenge is a play on the word game we've played at past fests where you have to come up with a craft supply that starts with the different letters of the alaphabet.

This is the place to post questions, comments and links to your projects.

Sarah, this has to be the most original challenge I've ever seen. My first thought was "No way." Then, almost against my will, my mind started thinking of which letters to choose so that I could possibly fulfill the requirements. Once I'd read through your blog, I realized that this is not only doable, but fun!

Thanks for getting this old brain going.

Exactly what Daria said! At first I thought it was super hard, then realised it's not so hard and in fact super fun! Great challenge, Sarah!

For some reason the image of a beanie style thinking cap with the propeller spinning on the top just popped in to my head!

Fun challenge!

LOL, Nerd! Whatta great challenge!

Don't know if this will meet your requirements, but I'm gonna offer it.

I chose the letter 'S'. That means I have to 'use' T, U, V, W, as well.

First the piece

S = Scarecrow
T = Tag (the part behind the scarecrow is a tag)
U = Umbre (the brown ink I used on the tag portion)
V = View (the punched circle let's you 'view' the crow')
W = Wiggles (what his legs do)

Thanx, Sarah. You're so nice. Sorry I couldn't link to your blog, pal.

Can't wait to see someone choose 'V' as their letter. Xyron anyone?

I combined your challenge with looser's 'Scrapling' one.

Scrapling and ABC challenge

When I made this card, I wasn't sure I would make the letters work. When I realized I was making a Valentine, I saw it worked for this set of letters:
S - Scrapling
T - Twine
U - Unity Stamp (tag stamp)
V - Valentine
W - white (there is some white in the patterned papers)

What was funny is I had trouble with the "U" at first, I forgot whose stamp it was. So then I added glitter so it would work for:
E - Echo Park paper
F - foam adhesive
G - glitter glue
H - heart
I - ink

Thanks very much for the challenge!

This is a great challenge. I combined it with the wings challenge. I chose to start with the letter R. I'll post all my finished projects in the next few days. This was fun. Thx.

Like the others I thought this was going to be too difficult but it came together easily. But now I feel like I am at the Amazing Race's finish line and wondering if I will be turned back for something I missed

I fully described my thoughts and gave all my words there starting with A. This is my gallery link.

Thanks Sarah for a fun and unique challenge!

Loved this challenge because it made me think. I was even happier because I was able to combine it with another challenge.

I started at R - ribbon, rub-on and rhinestones, S - stamping and stickles, T - tag, "treasure", tearing, U - UTEE and V - Vellum.

Here is my card for this challenge I feel like I had an advantage because my project had a lot of elements so it was easier to incorporate things with the right letters. I actually ended up doing two strings, O,P,Q,R and S and then A,B,C,D,E.

Sarah, I didn't think I'd be able to do this, but I kept seeing how others were managing, and I checked over the piece I just posted in the gallery, and it worked! Yeah!

Here's My Card.

Thank you for getting this old brain busy.

ETA:
