JANUARY Challenge - RECIPE 1-2-2-1-2

Hello Scrapalicious Diva Followers and Friends!!!

I am so sorry for the delay in posting the January challenge.  Unfortunately, it is proving a lot more difficult than I anticipated to get back into the swing of things after the Holidays.  I thought that once the Holidays trickled away, there would be more "down time" around my house and it would be easier to fulfill my commitments on time.  Well, that isn't the case.  Time is more scarce than it was around the Holidays.  Hopefully, with a positive outlook for 2012, this will turn around quickly.

So without further ado, I offer you the JANUARY Challenge at CSDivas.  

January 22, 2012 marks my 1 year Blogaversary at Jessica's Craft Shaque and I am planning an awesome celebration with prizes.  Be sure to be on the lookout for the grand announcement.  For the January Challenge, I am asking you to use the following 1-2-2-1-2 (my blogaversary date) recipe to create any Layout, Card, Altered item, 3D item, Home Decor piece, etc.  It's up to you what you create, just as long as you use the required ingredients:

1 - shape that doesn't have  a straight line (i.e. heart, circle, oval, scallop, etc.)
2 - colors (can be 2 different colors or 2 shades of the same color as long as these are the FOCAL colors in your creation)
2 - buttons, brads, or bling
1 - metal element/embellishment
2 - words, sentiments, or journaling spots

I still have to work on my example project then I will get the pics and deets  uploaded!!!

I hope you enjoy this challenge and it will be open until the January 31, 2012 at Midnight (PST).

And the prize for the randomly chosen winner will get a 
Mystery Prize from me!!!

Oh, I know what you mean about spare time being scarce. I barely had time to breath through the holidays and things are FINALLY slowing down a bit so I can squeeze in some craft time. Love your challenge..and it will be great motivation to get scrappy again!

Jessica said...

Thanks for understanding Karen! Glad you will be playing along. The linky should be up on the post soon.

Whew, finished my card for this challenge. I have been so inspired the past 2 weeks..and taking advantage of it! Used some stamps that I've had for awhile and never even opened! fun challenge! Linked it up.

Jessica, I have been having trouble with my Flickr account so the link I added isn't correct. I went ahead and re-posted the card with a different link but don't know how to remove the first, incorrect one. Can you help? Thanks!!

Jessica said...

No worries Karen, we will just keep you at Number 1 for the draw!!!
Hopping over to see your project full size...THANKS for playing along in the challenge!

Karen L said...

Thanks Jessica, I'm such a klutz sometimes when it comes to posting online! Either that, or my computer has gremlins! It was fun doing your challenge...and I used up some items that I've had sitting around for a long time!

Hi Jessica,
Just saw this post again and wondering if anyone else did a card for the recipe challenge?? It was a good one and got me kick started in January.
I had big plans for Valentines this month but time seems to have flown by too quickly.

Sorry that I didn't announce this sooner Karen, but you were the only submission, therefore no need to use Mr. Random . . .
I announced this on FB today. Do you follow our FB page. I tried to tag your name in the comment, but nothing popped up to link it to you! Please let me know when you get this so that I can verify your address hasn't changed!
