Week 45 'Rags To Riches'

Good Morning

It is time for me - Mummylade - to host my first challenge here at Allsorts and I am of course a bit nervous :) I guess some of you know that my absolute passion is to alter things around the house so what better challenge than to alter or recycle something. Change a cereal box to a piece of art, cut a piece from an old shirt and use on a card, punch a soda can and make charms, the possibilities are endless. I'm a vintage kinda gal so as a prize this we have a vintage kit for you from my own local craft shop - Scrapbooking4you.

Here is some inspiration for you from the design team:







(M&S foil dish, old book, kitchen foil and embellies off a wedding invitiation)









This week's winner

Week 44 Spring is in the Air

Morning all and welcome to week 44 at Allsorts.

I was so excited to see my lovely snowdrops in the last couple of weeks that I decided to make this week's theme "Spring is in the Air"

I had been worried that after temperatures of -29 this winter that my spring flowers wouldn't make it, but they are hardier than I thought!!

So dig out your Spring colours and get yourself in the Spring spirit!

The prize for this week is a pack of Dovecraft 8x8 papers and some chip board flowers

Please check out the DT girlies projects, they are all gorgeous :o)

Can't wait to hop round all your entries
