Time for a new challenge!

WOW! I am blown away with the number of players we had for last week's challenge. Thank you to everyone who joined in the fun! Before we get to the new challenge, I have a prize winner to announce from last week:

According to Random.org, our winner of the prize package from Juli Clark is number 61: Joanne Gilch! Congratulations Joanne! Drop me an email at mbryt1@bex.net and I will get your information to Juli so she can send out your package of goodies!

A huge thank you again to our fabulous first sponsor Juli! You can always visit Juli by finding her link on our Sponsors page. Thanks again!

Ok so now we're onto our next challenge!

This is a 1/2/3 challenge. Here are the requirements:

*Use 1 stamped image (not 1 set, but 1 image)
*Use 2 different patterned papers
*Use 3 embellishments - these can be 3 of the same thing or 3 different things

The DT has some awesome projects to share with you but, alas, I didn't make the requirements as clear as I should have so you may see a few variances. Yes, even I used 2 stamps, instead of one....ah well. I know you will all do a fantastic job with this challenge!! Here is what the DT whipped up:














Oh what talented gals! So are you up to the challenge? We can't wait to see what you create. No sponsor this week but you might just make our Friday Five so come join in the fun and play along! Create your 1/2/3 project and upload to your blog or other public gallery and then come back here and direct link to your project. And be sure to spread the word about our blog to other CTMH fans - the more, the merrier!

Oh and be sure to come back this Friday for our 1st Friday Five - I can tell you, it's going to be a tough choice!! Have a great time creating!

I really enjoyed the 1/2/3 Challenge. Now I have to wait a whole week until I get to see the next one, it's like waiting for Christmas.

I'll enjoy checking out the other creations while I wait.
