Week 208 - Happy 4th Birthday Allsorts

A very good morning to all you craft Peeps, today we celebrate our fourth birthday here at Allsorts challenge!!

It's quite amazing how that time seems to have flown by, but of course it's only been made possible because all of you lovely crafters join us time and again with your wonderful pieces of artwork and of course all our fabulous sponsors whose continued support we really appreciate.

So in time honoured fashion we are having a fun blog hop along with this weeks theme which could only be one thing really:

********Happy Birthday********

How easy is that but we wanted to to keep it simple and topical so it's lots of fun and something we hope you will all join in with and why wouldn't you with so many prizes on offer, so let me introduce this week sponsors:

PPR Crafts - $15 voucher:

Crimson Cloud - 3 packs of die cuts:

Winners choice of three pack of die cuts

Passion for Stamps - 4 images:

Crafts by Fitztown - 5 images of winners choice

And now for a blog hope, this is the order you need to follow:

If you get lost you can always come back here and start again. As I know there are always new people joining us here in blog land I will briefly explain that you need to visit each of the DT's blogs as listed above and collect a letter from each so you have eight in total. Leave a comment at each blog as all of the DT have another prize to be won on their individual blogs, then arrange those letters into an eight letter word and mail your answer to me. Then at the end of the week two winners will be selected from all the correct answers to win two more prizes:

A selection of ribbons and embellishments from Pretty Little Ribbons

An Ultimate Adhesive kit from Stix2

And finally how about some inspiration from the Design Team to send you on your way............




Have fun hopping along this week and good luck everyone.
