Hello everyone and welcome to our first challenge here at

Have you all been waiting with baited breath? The DT have been so excited waiting for this day, but at last it has arrived. Firstly we'd like to apologise for keeping you waiting all day today (We were due to go live at 7pm however the DT didn't get my e-mail blasted msn! , But.. thanks to sharon she's uploaded it all for me! thanks hun!

As this is our first challenge it has been set by Carly (me)! I thought she’d keep it simple, well simple ish…..This week is theme week! and the chosen theme is:


Create a card, atc, scrapbook page or altered item. You can use any type of image you want to!!

Now for the rules
1. Post your project on your blog with a link to our challenge.
2. Leave a comment on this blog with a link to your work.
3.If you don't have a blog you can email your projects at and we will add them to the blog.

The prize this week has kindly been donated by our very own Paula. Ain't she a darling!!

Here's some inspiration from the design team:

Our Guest Designer - Sharon

We cant wait to visit all your blogs to see what you have made in pink. Remember to check back next Thursday when we'll set a new challenge and Carly will let you know who the winner of this week's prize is.

Happy Crafting!!
