I went back to almost the start of Mission to Create and chose Mission 0004:

Deborah - Use a children's book title as your title
Jocie - Use a "creature" on your page (deer, owl, bird, etc.)
Nicole - Use this advertisement as inspiration

Vanessa - Use mini alpha's (stamped or stickers)
Lynette - Use the color combo blue/green/orange

Here's my take on Mission 0004:

supplies: patterned paper, die cut shapes, Crate Paper; sticker letters, October Afternoon; cardstock, Bazzill; button, Basic Grey; twine, The Twinery; gems, Micheal's Craft Store; other, thread, Stickles by Ranger.
