Challenge #203


Hello everyone, Alli here.  Firstly, thank you for all your lovely entries for the last challenge.
It is my choice this week and I have decided to go with.... Photo Inspiration.

I saw this wonderful bit of upcycling outside a garden centre near my Dad's house.
So, take a look at what our great design team have come up with and pop over to their blogs to leave them a little love and look at some of their fabulous work.
Then it is over to you - you don't have to use an Ooh La La image to enter but there are some freebies available on The Ooh La La website

Good Luck, I'm looking forward to see all your ideas 
Alli x

Challenge #201

Good Morning crafters, Wynn here. Welcome to Challenge #201. It's my turn to host this fortnight's challenge and I have chosen the theme 'Feathered Friends'. 

It's that time of the year when our feathered friends are very busy nest building. There's always plenty of noise from them here in my garden in Cyprus and we get lots of beautiful birds visiting.

So with this in mind, I made my choice. You do not have to use an Ooh La La image but it would be great if you did and remember you can always get freebies at Ooh La La Creations. Just click on the link in the sidebar.

I look forward to visiting you all to take a peep at your yummy entries. Good Luck and Happy Easter to you and your families.  Wynn x
