TheresaTheresa says: Boy what a challenge! My recipe: 1 brad, 2 pattern papers, and 3 photos.

YaraYara says: My Recipe: 1 photo, 2 rub-on pieces, 3 double side patterned papers from Kaisercraft Class 87. I love well condimented recipes, therefore I could not control myself for adding a little bit of condiments to my layout like 4 buttons, 1 piece of twine, 2 diecut pieces and 1 piece of memorabilia.

AmyAmy says: My 1,2,3 recipe: 1 photo, 2 letter fonts in the title, 3 different patterned papers. This is a picture of me and my sister in 1974, aren't we cute?!?

AprilApril says: My oldest daughter Emily used to drool like CRAZY when she was a baby. It was pretty hilarious because she never seemed to have a dry shirt until she was around 10 or 11 months old, lol! I thought the "It's Raining, It's Pouring" collection from Nikki Sivils would be perfect for this picture. ;) My 1-2-3 Recipe Is: 1 Picture, 2 Photo Corners & 3 Hearts.

MarilynMarilyn says: I love this challenge!! I made this page about my teen son Alexander, I used a cartoon effect for the photo. Ok, one photo, two staples and three buttons.

SuzySuzy says: Very FUN challenge! My recipe for this challenge : 1 Ribbon, 2 Button, and 3 Patterned Papers. It's a Birthday card for my very best friend! Can't wait to meet up with her this weekend!

AbbyI won this Bo Bunny "Blast Off!" collection from their blog and I'm loving it! So cute, fun and colorful.. just like my nephew! :) My 1-2-3 is 1 floss, 2 glazed brads and 3 photos.
