Happy Anniversary Belli Challenge and Mojo Monday Sketch!!!

Hello! Can you believe it has been ONE YEAR of Belli Challenges already!? For those of you who may not know what a Belli Challenge is...

Each week, Chrissy gives us a challenge that will use things we have lying around our stamp rooms or homes! With a constant flow of new things coming out, we tend to forget about the other things we have and they quickly become clutter!

For the week of January 28, Belli #52, we are hosting a VERY special Belli Challenge in celebration of our One Year Anniversary. Some of you may have played this game before with some other groups...

We will be BAKING A CAKE to celebrate our First Anniversary of Belli Challenges.

How do we play BAKE A CAKE? Listed below is a list of cake ingredients. You all must pick 5 ingredients, and reply to Chrissy in her comments for this challenge with your choices, you can list them on your upload too, but don't share what the ingredients stand for, link them up here! On this second list is the corresponding crafting ingredient for the items you picked. For example, flour = ribbon (just an example - the actual list is different). Your challenge is to create a card with those 5 ingredients that you chose. You could wind up having to create a card with ribbon, chipboard, designer paper, buttons, and paint. This is the fun part. You don't know what you are picking!! Are you ready for this fun challenge?? Be sure to reply what your 5 choices are in Chrissy's comments section.

Here are the ingredients, be sure to choose 5!

Baking soda
Powdered sugar
Cream cheese
Cocoa powder

This week to play here is what you need to do...

2. Pick your 5 ingredients!!!

3. Find out what the ingredients equal to in Embellishments!
