Happy Birthday TIME OUT Challenges!


Can you believe TIME OUT Challenges is celebrating its first birthday?! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIME OUT :)

This fortnight we are celebrating with a Home Sweet Home challenge, inspired by this photo seen below...

This is how I was inspired...

As you can see I was inspired by the colours and the frames. I decided to use the filmstrip from Strike A Pose! for my frame and used Simply Said Birthday sentiments. 

Speaking of Home Sweet Home, we moved into our new sweet home last week, hence the blog-a-roo and everything being so quiet. Plus the majority of my craft supplies and life in general is in boxes! I think we will be living from boxes for a few weeks, as it's not easy unpacking with two not so little beans keeping me busy. 

My not so little beans turned 6 months old this week, this is them in their new high chairs...



Anyway, this fortnight we have a lovely guest designer joining us, Mandi, be sure to stop by Mandi's blog HERE to see how she was inspired by the photo and of course the FABulous TIME OUT Challenges Design Team...

AND that's not all, as it's a birthday celebration there are prizes up for grabs too...

The winner will get:

-£15 Uniko Gift Voucher 
-$15 STAMPlorations Gift Voucher

Plus there will be a random draw and the winner of this will get a celebration/birthday stencil pack from STAMPloations.

For all the info and to link up your challenge be sure to stop by the TIME OUT Challenges blog. I look forward to seeing your creations :) I'll be back again later in the week with more to share & until then, thank you for stopping by today.
