I am just hijacking Susan's post to let you know that we have a new Allsorts team member, we have been a member down for a month or two and are so pleased that Annie is joining us. I am sure her name is familiar to lots of you so please join us in giving Annie a very warm welcome to Allsorts.

Thank you to everyone that joined in with our Birthday Celebrations last week ,please check the post below to see if you were the lucky winner or a top five pick.

This week it is my turn (Susan) to host and as predictable as l am this week the challenge is

In The Pink

A nice easy one, just feature plenty of pink on your project.  My teamies have some fabulous inspirational pieces to share with you, check out their own blogs for full details.

This week we have been generously sponsored by 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.

Sizzix, there's no bigger or better place for craft materials, custom dies and machines that can die-cut, emboss and texturize many materials, including cardstock, paper, construction paper, fabric, faux fur, felt and foil plus much more.

Week 364 - Happy 7th Birthday Allsorts

Good morning to you all, a very excited Brenda here with our 7th Birthday challenge. It's scary where those years have gone as it seems like only yesterday I nervously posted my card for our very first challenge back in 2009. Non of the other members of original DT remain, but we have a very dedicated team who have been together for some time now and work together so well. 

So a few thank you's are in order:
  • The Design Team who each week amaze me with their creations to inspire you all and their hard work visiting your entries.
  • Our wonderful sponsors who continue to lend their support to Allsorts and provide a super variation in prizes.
  • And last but by no means least all of you who return week after week to share your wonderful artwork, many of whom have been with us since day one.

And as it's a special occasion there is of course a very special prize which I am thrilled to tell you is being very generously provided by Tattered Lace and this weeks lucky winner chosen as always by Ramdom Org., will receive a fabulous £50 voucher to spend at their store here.

And the theme this week could be only one thing.......................

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

Here is all the Birthday inspiration from the Design Team, I do hope you will pop along to their individual blogs to say hello on this special occasion..................
