Linda Ledbetter does a wonderful job of hosting this fantastic challenge, if you aren't familiar with it, all you need to play along is of course your Tim Holtz stash.. ( yes it means using it not hoarding it!! lol ) and of course your very own copy of Tim's book -  A Compendium of Curiosities, Volume 3
The Curiosity Crew as always have provided some awesome inspiration! 
 ( I don't envy their job of picking a winner to receive some awesome goodies courtesy  of Tim and Mario at all!) You can find a FAQ about playing along here
