May Challenge

Good Morning everyone, It's May Day and it really is beginning to feel like Spring is with us and Summer on it's way.

I can't begin to tell you how thrilled myself, the Design Team and all the Stampalot guys were to see so many of you joining in our first challenge. At the risk of repeating myself I want to thank you all again and say we really hope that you will all be joining us again this month.

So why do we have in store for you this month ? An awesome prize of course, but first the theme and I'll put my hands up and confess that I might have had the teeny tiniest influence on this one, but it's very seasonal and gives us all the perfect opportunity to celebrate this wonderful time of year and get out all those pretty embellishments and crafty stash and get creative.........and our May theme is:

"Butterflies and Blossoms"


And now the fabulous prize that Sir Stampalot is so generously providing and will have all us TH groupies drooling and on our knees..........oh my am I excited about this one........ just take a look at this first part of the prize:
Yes that's his very own original signature on the inside cover of his brilliantly inspirational book A Compendium of Curiosities (back right in the picture below) as witnessed by Andy and Janice when he signed it at CHA in January. Although that's only a fraction of the prize, to my mind it's priceless. I know the book is now available to purchase in the UK, but not with that authentic signature. And the rest of the fabulous prize with an estimated retail value of circa £200 comprises of all things Tim Holtz, a fantastic array of goodies to keep any crafter busy for hours. Also included but not in the picture is one of the new Tattered Florals dies which is on back order from the States:
This beautiful frame made by Andy and Janice at a class they attended in the States run by none other that Tim himself has flowers created using the Tattered Florals die. You can see more pictures of it on Smudges, the Stampalot blog.
So after all that excitement, time to showcase the work the DT have come up with this month. They have really enjoyed this one as their wonderful artwork shows, they have all provided details on their personal blogs of how they made their creations so please click on their names to find out more.

Edited 5th May 2010: A polite reminder that one of our rules listed on the sidebar is that entries to our challenge can be combined with up to five others. Quite a few peeps have combined with more than this which means they are not eligible for the prize, so please check this our before linking your work. We really would hate for anyone to miss out on this one.

I've always wanted to have a go at a challenge and this is such a brilliant one, but I never seem to get the time. This time however, I was asked to make a project which I could fit to the challenge requirements perfectly so I decided to have a go at MY VERY FIRST CHALLENGE ENTRY!!! Just hope I got the linky bit right, Lol.

Good luck everyone and thanks Sir Stampalot for giving us the chance of this fabulous prize.
