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 #181

Good Morning everyone, Wynn here and it's my turn to choose the challenge theme.
 It's 'Circles and Squares', so you can let your imagination run wild with this one. It could be reflected in your layout or the images you use. You could also use up all those left over bits and pieces of background papers that you have hoarded away and simply cut them into squares and circles to make interesting backgrounds........it's up to you, so you see the sky's the limit when, like me, you let your imagination run away with you!! Have Fun!!!

Challenge #180

Hi everyone and welcome to the latest Ooh La La challenge, but before I tell you more, I must thank everyone who entered our last challenge.  To see the winners please scroll down.

Back now to today, and I've chosen "Use a pre-coloured image."  This can be from a crafting CD, an artist pad or a precoloured sheet, it's up to you. 

Now I have to confess, up till recently, I'd have regarded cards made this way as cheating a bit, but not any more!  They are still lots of fun to make, they still need artistic flair - all they do is save you a bit of time!

So what are you waiting for???  Hopefully lots of you will join in the fun.  The challenge runs for 2 weeks and to get you in the mood, here's what the lovely DT ladies came up with...

I'm a legal secretary who pushes paper all day so I come home each night and push more paper :) I'm lucky to have a husband who also has hobbies so he understands when I become involved in a project. I have an adult daughter who is a specialized veternarian technician that I'm very proud of. I am mom to 2 beagles and 3 cats. I love stained glass and gardening as well as cardmaking and scrapbooking.

Challenge #178

Morning everyone!
Anyone that follows my blog will know that I love layers, especially decoupage, so this was the obvious choice for my theme.  I would like to see lots of layers - at least FIVE, they can be decoupage or just layers of paper, card stock and embellishments.  I can't wait to see what you all create.
