Sponsor Spotlight: Rainbow Splendour

Time to turn our sponsor spotlight on this month's fabulous sponsor who is none other than...
Rainbow Splendour!

Rainbow Splendour belongs to our very own Design Team member Chloe Nielsen, who is the creative hands and mind behind this handmade embellishment business. Rainbow Splendour has built a very loyal customer base since its inception, and it's not hard to see why. Chloe's products are not only super cute, but they are also handcrafted with care and provided with happy, friendly service.

Here's a sample of some Rainbow Splendour goodies...

I asked Chloe to tell us a bit about Rainbow Splendour in her own words...

"Here at Rainbow Splendour, we love COLOUR!
We have embellishments in all shades of the rainbow, ranging from pinwheels, bows, feathers, pretty petals, polaroid frames and our ever popular pretty pins.
Our most recent addition has been our vellum bows, which have proven to be right on trend and HUGELY popular."

March Challenge Reveal!

Welcome to March, welcome to Autumn (here in Australia) and welcome to our latest challenge! First of all we must thank all the participants from our February challenge, we had a great batch of entries! We will tally the team's votes and announce a winner as soon as possible.

Now, this month we have a gorgeous quote challenge brought to you by our DT member (she is also our Pinterest manager!), Chloe Nielsen. Chloe has sourced this quote for everyone to use in their creations this month...

Aside from including the quote somewhere on your layout, the only other thing you need to do is to include a handmade embellishment - easy! (Your embellishment does not have to be made by you, it can be something you have purchased from someone else, such as flair buttons.)

This month our challenge has not only been designed by Chloe, but it is being sponsored by her as well! Chloe is the owner and head designer of Rainbow Splendour, and there is a gorgeous package of handmade Rainbow Splendour goodies up for grabs for our winner!

Rainbow Splendour has always been a fantastic supporter of the SUYS challenge, so please show Chloe your support in return by ensuring you are a fan of Rainbow Splendour on Facebook HERE and following the Rainbow Splendour blog HERE

Now onto some inspiration from our Design Team with our first monthly reveal...
