C.R.A.F.T 51 - It's our Blogaversary....! Celebrate/Birthday!

Wow! It doesn't seem like a year since C.R.A.F.T was born, a lickle, new baby blog.....aaahhhhh!...........all pink and cuddly and smelling of embossing powder.....

So, it's our birthday a
nd we’re celebrating in suitable style by having a fun blog-hop as well as our usual Challenge which, this week, is Birthday or Celebrations.

Your prize for the Challenge this week is a lovely set of Papermania 'Henbury Lane' DesignerPapers and accessories, including beautiful adhesive gems, gorgeous blooms and a wonderful wood-mounted rubber stamp!



Now what d'you think of that! - Fabulous eh?!

Here are our wonderful team's efforts for your inspiration!

Our fabulous Guest Designer Debbie has produced this lovely creation for us this week

Thank you once again Debbie!


Now our regular team with their contributions
in our usual alphabetical order :-......


Andrea






























We have lots of lovely individual sponsors for our Blog Hop too!

It’s going to be a lot of fun with prizes and draws at each stop and a final winner at the end, so don’t be a square—be there! -and be in with a chance to win!

Our blog-hop order is this:-

1) You start on the C.R.A.F.T Challenge blog and you visit each Design Team Member’s personal blog and leave a comment.

2) At each stop there will be a RED word associated with crafting for you to collect

3) We’re staying with our customary alphabetical list for the team so Andrea is the next stop after the C.R.A.F.T Challenge blog.
Andrea will give you the link to the nest DTM and so on.

4) At the end, we want you to get back to C.R.A.F.T and leave us a comment with the nine words you pick up! If you can make a sentence so much the better!

Just to make it clear for you to follow - here is our DT in alphabetical order.

Andrea
Claire
Eileen
Enola
Jo
Magda
Rose
Suzi
Tigerlover


We're SO Looking forward to seeing who comes up with the correct sentence as we have a really fabulous new sponsor for that - QVC's Scrapbooking Expert, Rosemary Merry!

She is kindly having a good look through her stock at Crabapple Crafts to find something lovely for that clever crafter (who will be chosen from the correct answers by random generator) who gets the sentence right!
Now how cool is THAT!

And that is in addition to all the prizes available at our Design Team Members' own blogs!

So ultimately, someone COULD, arguably, come away with no less than TEN prizes! Oh my goodness! Is that, or is it not, very very nice.........?!

Enuff sed! So off you go! Enjoy - and have yourselves some crafty fun - it's gonna be GREAT!

Please add you Birthday/Celebration creation to Mr Linky Below - if he has gone walkabouts can you pop back later to add your project.....

  19. I visited everyone but couldn't comment on Enola's unfortunately. When word verification is turned on a non English site my computer won;t let me leave a comment.

    I think the sentence is "Crafting with paper, pencil, embossing powder, inkpads, scissor is great.

  20. Never thought I'd be able to think of so many variations but without an 'and' this is my final conclusion! With paper, pencil, embossing powder, scissors, inkpads, crafting is great. To taxing for my brain while the weather is this warm. Thanks for a cool hop and so many amazing prizes! Happy blogversary. Hev:)

  48. Fab hop, what a talented team!

    THURSDAY IS CRAFTING WITH PAPER, PENCIL, POWDER, SCISSORS, INK PADS
    Lynne
    :o)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ooh it's a tricky sentence but I'm going to go with:
    PAPER CRAFTING IS GREAT WITH PENCIL, SCISSORS, INKPADS, EMBOSSING POWDER
    (I thought it was only meant to be 9 words, but there seem to be 10).
    Great cards on the blog hop - and Congratulations!!

  50. Happy Birthday to all the team. Love this challenge and have always tried to enter whenever I can.
    I'm not sure whether I've already placed a comment -eeeeeeeeeeeek I don't want to cheat. I did the hop round everyone's cards a few days ago but I can't remember commenting here - thought I would do that when I had finished my card entry.
    So sorry if this is a double - please delete one of them.
    The words for the blog hop comp are..
    Paper crafting with pencil, embossing powder, scissors, inkpads is great.
    Hope that's correct. Thanks for all the fun.
    After all that rambling at the beginning I don't think I have commented before cause I can't remember putting the words into a sentence.
    eeeeeeeeeek sorry for rambling.

  59. Hi,
    I've completed your Blog Hop, collected all the words and thinking about a sentence I realise that I'm not able to make a sentence of it. Sorry, but maybe it's easier if you're native english to make a sentence. So these are the words I found: great, pencil, crafting, embossing, powder, scissors, is, paper, inkpads, with
