Challenge 145, Inspired by a Song

Morning all,

Another Thursday brings another challenge here today at CRAFT Challenge again, this time our challenge is 'Inspired by a Song'. So, any project fitting this subject will be eligible for a prize. There is a maximum of 5 entries per person each challenge, so please don't enter any more than that or they will not be counted.

We hope you will enjoy playing along with this one again. Thank you for everyone who joined us again last week for our Mothers' Day challenge (lots of entries again) and thank you again to In2StampsTrimgym's Digistamps and Images  and Wild Rose Studio Ltd for sponsoring us last week. Please scroll down to find the winners of last week's challenge, our Top3 and our Star of the Month, or click on the links at the top of this blog. If you were one of them, please contact us to claim your prize and/or badge.

So, here are our sponsors for this week:

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week! 
 If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT   for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug
