Week 326 - Recycle/Upcycle

A very good morning to you all, Brenda here this with weeks challenge and a big thank you for all your lovely Rose inspired creations for Helene's theme last week, make sure you check out the post below to see if your were a winner or in our Top 5.

But before I tell you about this weeks theme I would like to say a huge thank you to Jo for her work and commitment to Allsorts for the last four years. Sadly Jo is leaving the team to concentrate on her craft store Lets Create. Whilst we are sorry to see her go we totally understand her decision and I am pleased to tell you that she will be back from time to time as a Guest Designer.

So what do I have in store for you this week, well I would like to see some......................


As always you can create anything you wish, but please do make sure you tell us in your post what items you have recycled.

We have two prizes this week from our very generous sponsors, the first is a choice of 3 images from Scrappers Delight...................

My name is Janice (AKA Scrapper's Delights), I discovered the digital scrap booking world November 2008 and started to Design February 2009 and really love it so I decided I wanted to have my own shop so here we are lol.

And the second is Crafty Ribbons with a collection of pretty ribbons and gems

Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none. Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel ? Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft. Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all! Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths. Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects on our blog,or visit our Inspiration blog,or maybe join in with us at our Challenge blog. Go on, have a look... It's worth it !
