So What is Challenge 1

Well as we are a new challenge blog, we need you to create something to do with "NEW"

Now how you interpret that is purely upto you but for some ideas, New Home, New Baby, New Marriage, New Job, you get the idea.

Okay you can use any craft technique you like to make your creation and then pop a link on MR Linky to your work, linking back to this site. The winner will be chosen by Random Org. and posted at around 9am next Thursday. All entries have to be in by 8pm Wednesday 27th to be entered into the draw.

Over now to the Design team for some more inspiration. Be nice they are slightly nervous, but very excited to share.

Junior DT

Is Aged 11 and is here to inspire the next generation of crafters.

Okay Mr Linky was here this morning But has gone AWOL!!! LOL!! Teething troubles LOL!!

Please post a comment and we will come see your work.
