First of all I must thank everyone who took the time to enter, each and every entry was fabulous and so much awesome talent on display so of course that made the job of choosing even more difficult, but the votes are now in and have been you think I could get a job on Strictly Come Dancing....I wish ?

We implemented a voting system with all the DT putting forward their three favourites to make things as fair as possible and I can now announce that the following have been invited to join the team:

Week 108 - 3-2-1

Morning all and welcome to another week at Allsorts! A big thankyou to everyone who entered last week's challenge, there were some fabulous entries. Remember to keep an eye out for the winner and top 5.

This week it's my (Amanda) turn and I am setting you a wee 3-2-1 challenge. I want to see 3 papers- 2 ribbon- 1 flower

This week we are thrilled to welcome a new sponsor 'Love to Stamp' who are offering one lucky winner thier choice of a Little Darling stamp.

Here is little about the store from owner Angie. "With my husband's support and encouragement, I decided to open a store where I could bring many of my favorite things together in one place. I thought about how wonderful it would be to launch a new rubber stamp line and through a friend found an amazing muralist and children's book illustrator. The combo of my vision and her raw talent has resulted in the ‘Little Darlings' rubber stamp line. I am truly blessed to be able to do something that I absolutely love each and every day.

Here are the gorgeous inspiration projects from our DT, click on the names to go direct to each blog and leave a little love :o)
