Week 104 - Photo Inspiration

Hello everyone, welcome to Allsorts second 'birthday bash'...........we are two today !!

And how lucky am I (Brenda) as this week just happened to be my turn to host the theme so I mega excited to be sharing the news with you on behalf of all the Design Team.

It's hard to believe it's two whole years since we excitedly announced your first challenge and here we are with more than 1,ooo followers and a really popular challenge.............and all of that is thanks to you lovely peeps who have supported us throughout that time, you are such a wonderful bunch and we so appreciate your continued support.

So to show how grateful we are there will be extra prizes up for grabs this week with a blog hop. I am sure lots of you know the procedure, but as some of you will be new to this blogging lark this is what you need to do......................

Visit each of the Design Team members own blogs in the order listed below, leave each one a comment and collect a letter from each of their blogs, come back here are use the letters along with those in the grid below to make up two words.

_R_ _ _ // _ R A_ _


When you have the answer mail it to me brenda@ibas.co.uk and all the correct answers will go into the draw for a special prize from Sir Stampalot, this weeks sponsors. And each of the blogs you visit along the hop will have a prize up for grabs as well.

Sir Stampalot were our very first sponsor and we are so grateful to them for their continued support of the challenge. For those of you not familiar with them, they have a super spacious shop in Peterborough where you will find a fabulous display of all our favourite stamps (and a coffee whilst you browse), a huge range of all the latest DP's as well as a whole load of other crafting goodies to feed our addiction.

Latest deliveries include re-stocks of TH tattered floral dies which you will find here and the new Tilda Sweet Rainbow range which are presently being uploaded. And if you are too far away to visit the shop, they offer a super swift delivery from their on line store.



Here is what this weeks lucky winner will receive from Sir Stampalot..........two gorgeous sets of Art Impression stamps.

And here is your photo inspiration for this weeks challenge, please interpret any way you wish and myself and the Design Team are really looking forward to seeing what you create.


Finally, some inspiration from the Design Team to set you on your way.....clearly we are all looking forward to a lovely warm summer and our holidays.......

  20. Please remove entry 67. I thought it was for birthdays. Am sorry for the wrong posting. Makes me wonder what blog was doing birthdays. lol May be back with a fun beach card that would work far better for this challenge. Thank you so much for understanding and I do hope it will be removed before any more of the DT waste their time going to my blog. I know from personal experience how hard DTs work to visit each blog and leave comments. Hugs to all, Moshie
