The Winner of Round #1




Formally the "You Know You Have It" Challenge

Runs from December 15 to January 15

Hi and welcome!! This is the second round of this challenge. It was a pretty good hit last month, so let's see what we can do this month!!

This Challenge runs from the 15th to the 15th of each month. That way not everything is due at the end of the month. Plus if you have done all of your challenges, here is new one for ya!!


About the challenge. This is for that item in your stash that you thought was so cool that you just had to buy it. Then you got home and thought, what am I going to do with this?? Maybe it’s a flower, a sticker pack, some eyelets or brads. Or some other embellishment that was too unique to pass up. Go get that item, figure out a way to use it, and use it!!! [color]

Rules:

Item must be an embellishment of some sort – You may use a form of pattern paper. However, it must be used to embellish the page, not as the background.

Layout (or project) must be new as of December 15. One layout per person. You can share more if you like but, don't share to many!! As long as I have Why the's and people sign up, this challenge will continue!!

Anyone can join at anytime, but please remember...leave love for other players!!

I will post all entries on first page. (Remember to public embed)
Tell us what the item is…or take a picture of it before you use it and post that here.
Challenge will run until January 15. I will take pm's of favorites starting on the 16. If there are 12 or less entries send me 3 favs 13 or more send me 5 favs. There is no RAK for this, we are trying to get rid of stuff, not accumulate more But the winner's layout gets center stage on next months thread!!

I'm sorry no digi's for this, must be paper layouts.

I'll play Kimmy....because Lordy knows I have tons and tons of stuff I need to get used and out of my stash.

My item will be a large (4" I think) flower by Petaloo. I actually didn't pick this out, it was a grab bag deal and I got stuck with it...lol...so I hope this will count. I've tried trading them (there are 4, but only making myself use one) and tried selling them...but just can't get rid of them! LOL

I don't know what to do with it b/c it is so big! It will take up half the page and leave less room for all my other clutter

Hello Everybody!!! Glad to have all!!!

I think using a tool, that makes an embellish would count. Make sure to tell us what the tool was and what you made with it!!

I'd like to play, but I'll have to go through my stash... And it may be after Christmas or in January before I can do this. My month's worth of Scrappin' Mojo is just about spent... *sigh*

Pretty cool challenge. I know we've all got that something that made us so excited when we first found it, and now has us scratching our heads in bewilderment. I'm a tool junkie, so if I find time to join in, it will probably be with something I haven't tried yet. That won't be too hard to do since I had the Fiskars Scalloped Sentiment punch for about 6 months before finally using it last weekend. Gasp!

Let's see:

Kristi, no you don't have to tell me now. You can tell me/us whenever you figure it out! And mention it in you description too.



Mrs. Momma, no worries, this runs until the middle of January. Take you time - and sending mojo you way!

If you use a tool, make sure to tell us what embelly you made with it.
