Challenge 269 ~ Anything Goes


 Hi, Cut it Up Fans!
Welcome to the first challenge of the new year!
We're so happy you are joining us.

We have a new blog owner, Larelyn, a few new design team members, and a little bit different format for 2023.

We will no longer be a sponsored challenge blog.  We have had the MOST AMAZING sponsors in years past, but we've decided to just be a challenge blog this year.  Now, that's not say there won't be any surprises along the way.  Of course, we'll be selecting our Top 3 for each challenge and, as always, extending a guest designer spot to our Top 3.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful Happy New Year projects with us!
This was our final challenge awarding sponsor prizes. says winner of the choice of 3 sets from The Cutting Cafe is:
#8 Ann Chuang

and the winner of the crafty package from our designer, Leslie is
#10 Deanne Saunders
