A warm welcome to the Ooh La La Challenge Blog. A new challenge will be posted here every other Monday. We hope you will join us whenever possible.

Anyone can join in, all you have to do is follow the theme then showcase your project on our blog. We love to see you using OLL images and/or papers but it's not necessary to enter. If you'd like to try some OLL designs click on the link to the shop on the sidebar as there are some fantastic freebies for you there.

Please post your project on your blog with a link to our challenge. If you don't have a blog you can email your projects to me at anne_oohlala@yahoo.co.uk and I will add them to the blog. Most importantly HAVE FUN!

Challenge #151

Good morning everyone!  Firstly, thank you to everyone who entered our Fashionista challenge last week, there were some fabulous entries.  Please scroll down to see if you were picked for our top three.

Now this week it's my turn to choose a theme.  I've chosen this particular one as the next fortnight encompasses what would have been my parents' sixty third wedding anniversary.

Sadly Mum passed away in 2009 but I still always think of 10th March as their Special Day.  I used pictures of my Mum and Dad in my project this week, so here we go!  Scroll down through the incredible inspirational projects from all the DT and don't forget to check out their blogs and leave them some love.

Hugs from Alli and the Ooh La La Team x

Challenge #150

Hello again everyone and Happy Monday to you all.  Ciska here with a new challenge for you, this time I would like to see some "FASHIONISTA".  I'm not really into fashion but I do love to see images from times gone by and check out ways they dressed back then.  Whether it's the Victorian age with their beautiful long dresses or flashes of neon from the eighties, it really inspires me in my crafting, so wanted to give you the same inspiration.  Let your project become a fashion victim and show us some fashionista!  It can be from the olden days or today, as long as there's someone with some fashion sense.  Make sure you let us know from which era you found fashion inspiration!

I've chosen these three as winners because it's the style I like, clean, simple and classy!

Congratulations to all our winners.  
Please don't forget to pick your badge up from the side bar.

I have a special mention for Ingvar Kvinnesland
I am a man, 36 years old, living in Norway who have been scrapbooking/card making for about 2 years. Most of my projects are 3D made from paper. I cut most things by myself, but also like to mix the paper project with other materials, like wood, plastic, metal etc.

My contribution don't have a name, but the idea was to make a heart trophy with lots of flowers, glitter and mist.
