August Challenge

Hello folks, we are well into the holiday season now, the children are in holiday mode and I hope you are all enjoying yourselves whatever you have planned this year.

We had a huge number of entries last month, thank you all so much for your support and helping us put Stampalot challenge on the map. Yet again you wowed us with some fantastic artwork which was a joy to see as we visited you all.

In case you missed my post yesterday, our July winners will be a bit late being posted due to holidays so I will post them as soon as I am home on 8th August. On to this months theme which I am sure you will love:

Bring on the Bling

What better opportunity to get out those embellies, glitters and gems which we all love so much and go right OTT if you like and dazzle us with your works of art. But if glitz is outside your comfort zone, then just a few gems, as long as we can be like jackdaws and see something sparkly that will be fine.

Can I remind you that you can combine your entry with up to five other challenges, more than that and I am afraid it will not be eligible for the prize on offer. Challenge rules are listed on the sidebar if this is your first time here.

Now this months prize from Sir Stampalot which to me looks like a small craft store in it's own right. There is so much in there that it's impossible to list it all out, but for starters there two sheets of the whole Bazzil Bling Birthstone range, some gorgeous foiled and glittered DP's, a set of Fiskars embossing products plus so many other things and of course some gems and glitters and I just know it will find a great home amongst the crafty stash of one lucky winner.


The Design Team have again come up with some wonderful artwork for inspiration and you can go to their individual blogs to find out how they created their work by clicking on their names.
