**WINNER** Dec GD Challenge #2 - Year in Review

Post by cajenkins81 » Wed Dec 04, 2013 8:31 pm

Random.org picked #6 and that's Joannie!! Congrats!! Thanks to all who took time out to do my challenges this month.


****************************


Even though December brings the holiday season, time with family and friends, lots of yummy things to eat, and celebrations, after Christmas there is a time of reflection on the old year and thinking of new things to come. I personally (me and my family) have been through a heck of a time this year. I had what I thought was the job I always wanted, lost it, and was forced to find something new. What I have now is more than I ever could have imagined and more. I have an amazing job, but in the process, I had to move across the state and leave behind everything we knew. From last January, to now so close to the end of the year, we live in a new house in a new town across the state, with a new fabulous job, with new friends. I also will be celebrating both my kids’ birthdays next week, which means I will now have a 5 year old and a 2 year old! SO many things are different at this year’s end, but so much to be thankful for.

So, this is your chance to reflect on all the challenges of the past year! For this challenge, you may pick ANY monthly challenge from the past year (not counting November, since there’s already a rewind challenge for this). If you’re like me, there’s at least one or two that you didn’t get a chance to ever get to. While we do have the Rewind challenge and I have taken advantage of those a lot, there are some from previous months before that, which I want to actually still get to. So this is your chance! Pick any challenge from the lists below – except the rewind challenges ;) – and get to scrapping! For those of us who have been around a while, you may already know which one you want to do (I did!) but for others, you might have some digging and reading to do to
see what all the challenges are. Have fun!

Here's my Example

Image

It's from Kim (killarney rose)'s October Heritage Challenge - scrap a pic of a building over 50 years old. It just happens to be where I work, and I'm fascinated with the history of this building! I had good intentions but October was impossible, with us moving and such. And then November was playing catch up.

What an awesome challenge since I miss so many of the challenges due to work commitments! It will be fun going back over the year to pick one.

wow, what an amazing challenge! I just joined the ACOT community in June so I've missed 6 whole months worth of challenges! Looking forward to going back in time and doing some that I missed. Are we able to enter multiple layouts if we get several old challenges done?

thanks! I was thinking of that, and it took me awhile to find even the master lists - the individuals would have been a nightmare! lol. Luckily I have every piece of paper that I make from each month (where I write down the challenges and info on a sheet) still saved in my drawer, so i could easily look back at mine if I wanted. But I didn't go too far back for the one I picked lol (Just an October challenge)

I used May Technique Challenge- For my challenge you must use the following 2 things...
Stamp with any household item- I stamped with a used pop dot sheet.
Use your newest papers

So there was actually a challenge I DID NOT do! It was for your October Christmas Challenge - scrap what is unique to your state/country during Christmas.

In Texas (particulary South Texas), while everyone else is having ham and/or turkey for dinner, we are getting our grub on with Tamales! Mmmm...we've got pork, and chicken and cream cheese with spinach and cream cheese with jalepenos and some are extra spicy! :) Love it!

There is a place just 2 mins away from my house that makes the best tamales in Corpus Christi IMO. We buy enough to get us through New Year's too. They do sell tamales all year long, but its extra special during the Holidays.

wow, all that bling and embellishments are just great! Love all the detail there. Those pics of your mom are just great! And I like how you did a flip opening for another picture behind. The title of course is perfect! I'm glad you were able to get an old challenge done. Thanks for doing my challenge!

You did a great job with using the used pop dots sheet as a stamping tool! Great idea. Great job in using so many different papers. Glad you were able to get an old challenge done, thanks for doing my challenge!
