Magical Crafts Challenge #11

Good Morning everyone, hopefully my scheduled post has posted on the correct date and time as at this moment I should be well on my way to Harrogate for the Great Northern Papercrafts Extravaganza.

Thank you to everyone who entered our last challenge over on Magical Crafts..WOW it was a record breaking number of entries.  We're guessing things with wings are popular with many of

Challenge #11

Spring/Easter Theme

Well it's only a few more weeks until Easter and yesterday was the first day of spring, so what better theme to kick start the new season with.  We would like to see your Spring or Easter inspired projects.  Remember you can enter with any craft it doesn't have to be papercrafts, all you have to make sure is that you follow the set challenge.

This fortnight we are kindly being sponsored by Lexi's Doodles and the winner will win three images of Lexi's.  The DT were lucky enough to use the three images for our creations to help inspire you, please be sure to check out all of my fellow teamies work.  Here's mine........

I've decorated a papermache basket from Hobbycraft using paper from Papermania, the crochet flowers I made myself, this time last week I couldn't even really crochet, I spent many hours watching You Tube tutorials over and, so I'm quite proud of these, the buttons in the centre's are also Papermania.  The oversized ribbon was from my gorgeous mother's day bouquet from the girls and I have used Lexi's sweet 'Bella the Bunny' as a tag, this image is one of this challenge's prizes.

We do hope you will be able to join us for our challenge this time round, we can't wait to see your creations.

Thanks for stopping by!!
