Three-element collages - part 1

The first of the 3-element collages are arriving, and boy are they fun!  Many of you have said you found this exercise challenging.  It's good to push ourselves once in a while, right?  It's how we learn.
Hats off to everyone who has pushed through their discomfort and completed the challenge so far.  I love seeing the way everyone is interpreting the theme.

Two from Catherine:



Two from Judith:



Four from Laurie:





Three from Marsie:




Three from Phillip:




One from Sue:


Four from Susan:





The swap deadline for this is March 2nd, so you've still got plenty of time to make some collages and mail them to me.
