#1 - Trash to Treasure

Welcome to the first challenge of the new Sugar Creek Hollow called TRASH TO TREASURE. This week we want you to take something that would normally be headed for your garbage can or your recycling bin and transform it into a vintage, shabby chic or primitive treasure. We also hope that you will make use of your scraps in this challenge but that shouldn't be considered your trash item.

When the Design Team come to visit your blog they will need to see a photo of your trash item along with the finished project so they can say "Wow, that started out as that!" Besides, the "before" photo is the only way they will know if your entry is eligible.

This week one random winner will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display on their blog. The Design Team will choose a Top Pick and the creator of that project will also receive a winner's badge and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

We have a Guest Designer joining us this week, chosen from the December Top Picks, Sheri Willshire. Sheri and the rest of the Design Team have created some wonderful Trash to Treasure items for your inspiration. Check out their blogs so you see how they made their transformation.
