due to some technical difficulties, we are bringing you the new ELEMENTS challenge now!

sorry for the delay, folks!
there were some technical issues on our Dollie, Adina's end, so she's asked me to post this for her... we apologize for the delay, and as a result, we'll give you until next WEDNESDAY at midnight EST to play along with this Elements challenge. (we'll post the next one on Tuesday, on schedule, but we'll extend this one for those who might like the extra time)

now then... anyone for The Sound of Music?
this challenge is all about your FAVORITE THINGS!

"When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don't feel..." - you get the gist! Incorporate THREE items from the song in a project, and TELL US what they are. keep in mind we're not talking about three of your favorite CRAFTING items, like brads or distressing or what have you, but perhaps your favorite foods, vacation spot, type of music, that kind of thing... OR take direct quotes from the song and incorporate THOSE into the project. sounds complicated, right? check out what our Dollies have done!

ELLEN showed us 10 of her favorite things...

NICOLE used a satin ribbon ("blue satin sashes"), her dog (who DOESN'T bite!), the words "bee" ("when the bee stings") and "sad" ("when i'm feeling saaaaaaad"), and her button is tied up with string. get it? :)

ADINA used the title, the bright copper kettle (as shown in the second page photo), and she mentioned apple streudel in the journalling. this is what we're talkin' about, folks!

you can do this, right? we KNOW you can, and we can't wait to see what you'll do with this prompt!

link your project up to our dear friend Mr. Linky below by midnight next WEDNESDAY, January 27th, and be sure to link back to us in your blog post! don't forget that your project must be created NEW for this challenge. HAVE FUN! (and good luck getting the song out of your heads!)



  1. LOVE all of these! Great jobs, Dollies!!! (That pup face just kills me! That is cute on a stick!)

  2. What a cool theme! Love the DT examples, and can't wait to see everyone else's favourites too :D
