March Winner!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter with their families, celebrating with whatever your family traditions are.

Despite the holiday break, (and immense amounts of chocolate they had consumed), our DT were hard at work choosing a winner from our March challenge. And once again, our entrants didn't make it an easy task either, so thank you to everyone who participated!

Our March winner was this fabulous creation...

belonging to....Elisa Ablett!

Congratulations Elisa, we loved your take on the challenge! You can read more about Elisa's layout on her blog HERE

Elisa has won a prize pack from our amazing March sponsor Rainbow Splendour! (Elisa - please send us an email with your details via the contact tab so we can pass them on for you.)

Thanks again to everyone who played along and shared their work with us. We hope you are all joining us again this month with our current mood board challenge (details HERE) for your chance to win a prize from Catie's Craft Corner!

April Challenge!

Well Easter is almost upon us, and besides an overload of chocolate, it also means that for many of the mums amongst us (myself included), that we can kiss goodbye to routine and school lunches for a couple of weeks and enjoy a bit of extra creative time...hooray!

Before revealing the new challenge, we would like to thank all our entrants in our March challenge. We received a spectacular group of entries, and we will get back to you with a winner shortly.

This month our challenge has been designed by our very own DT member, Kim Kendall. Kim has put together this stunning mood board for everyone...

You can be inspired by this mood board however you wish, just remember to tell us what inspired you and don't forget to include a handmade embellishment!

This month our challenge is being sponsored by yet another one of our own DT members Catie Kennedy, from Catie's Craft Corner.

Although you may have noticed Catie's inspiring work for SUYS a little absent lately, it is simply because she has had so much going on she has been unable to fit it in. She does remain a valued member of our team though, and Catie's Craft Corner has always been a fantastic supporter of ours too. I am sure you will see more of Catie's work once she has some breathing room again! In the meantime, Catie has offered a prize pack of some gorgeous goodies for our winner this month.

Now onto some inspiration from our Design Team...

I am sure you will agree it's another amazing batch of inspiration from our team and now it's time to show us YOUR stuff! We look forward to seeing everyone's take on this challenge. Please link your entries via the blog, by midnight 30th April.
