June Winner!!

June was a bit quieter among the scrappy challenge sites, and i am blaming that on the super cold weather! Who wants to be sitting at a desk, when you can be sitting under a warm cosy blanket! lol!

Anyway, we have voted, and our winner is this page....

July Mid-Month Reveal!

Hi everyone!
With much of Australia having received an icy blast this past week, we hope you have all been keeping warm and dry and have had a chance to scrap! (And for those of you in the northern hemisphere who are currently enjoying the summer...lucky you! haha)

This month we have a colour challenge for you that has been designed by DT member Cally Brunner...

You will need to use the colours from the palette to create your entry (and can even be inspired by the photo if you wish!) and you must also include a handmade embellishment. Remember that you are not limited to creating a layout for our challenge - art journal spreads; cards; pocket page spreads; or even off the page creations are all welcome as long as they are created solely for our challenge and fit the criteria.

We are also lucky enough to have Cally (from Cally B Designs) supplying our prize this month. Take a look at this haul of goodies she has for our lucky winner...

Now here's what the rest of our team created for this month's challenge...

Handmade items from Burdys Embellies; Charms Creations; D-lish Scraps.
Also hand torn and sprayed card strip and (daughter Sammies) altered paper clip.

Charms Creations heart; Rainbow Splendour veneer; Studio 1440 flair; 
Flutterby Designs stencil; and handmade flags.

Handmade items by Charms Creations; Burdy's Embellies

D-lish Scraps flair and wood veneer; Charms Creations heart; Flutterby Designs stencil;

There you have it - plenty of eye candy to inspire your own creation! Entries for this challenge need to be linked up via the link tool by midnight, 31st July.
