How Far One Can Go

I was eager to get done with a creation to participate in the challenge over at Diana's Blog-DLArt.  Diana celebrated her 1 Year Blogaversary this week and to celebrate, she hosted a Blog Hop and is hosting a challenge that ends tomorrow, January 6th.  We had to use the elements we found during the blog hop and I was anxious to start.  This card will resemble my last post a bit because I tried to use up some of the scraps I had left over.  I am pleasantly surprised by the outcome.

I also wanted to get some entries done for some other challenges, too...
Unity Opportunity - Ippity Challenge 1/04 through 1/15
Unity Stamp Co. - FB Itty Bitty Challenge
Unity January KOM Sketch Challenge
The Paper Shelter - #45 AG
The Outlawz - Twisted Thursday TT010512 
Little Scrap Pieces - New or Old (Link Up)

I also plan to link this up to the Unity Friends with Flair tomorrow (1/06/12) and will add the link when the post is up in the morning!!!

And, Diana, I thought for a few days after the hop on how to incorporate the #1, but kept coming back to the sentiment you see above that had "one" in it.  I hope that works for the challenge!  :O)
