Challenge 96 - Anything goes

Hi there! We are back with a new challenge for you all. It's the easy one you know, the Anything goes challenge that everyone loves because you can fit anything into it. Well, enjoy it while you can because my coming challenge that will be two weeks from now will set you to the test. :) 

So a winner from Winter blues challenge is needed. Who can it be this time? Will we give away the wonderful gift voucher or is it "just" the three digis going this week? You have won three digis from the Paper Shelter. Click the e mail elf to the left and he takes you to the Paper Shelter store where Veronica is waiting for your mail. 
Our winner this week is
Number 50 - Renate

As always we have our gift certificate up for grabs at our challenges. It's worth $30 and it can be yours is if you play with a TPS image and is drawn by Mr Random. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice. Not too bad that either, but I really would love to see more TPS images playing in our challenges. LoL

A little but yet big news to our team is that Wendy has agreed to stay on my team.  Your are so welcome sweetie. This is just a heads up while I'm at it.  We are soon going to have a DT call here over at the Paper Shelter. I really want many to take part in the call and as always we will take a close look at your colouring skills as well as your designing skills.

The styles and images is really a mix this week as it normally is when it comes to Anything goes challenges. I am amazed by the teams creations this week and I hope you are too. Be sure to pay them a visit as they do the most wonderful job to inspire you.  Love all your creations gals! You totally rock!

Challenge #94 Flower Extra Vaganza

Hi there! Long time no seen! We are finally back with our regular challenges here at the Paper Shelter. I've missed you all. Hopefully you all had a lovely time off during Christmas (doesn't it seem to be long ago?) and the New Year's celebrations and are now ready waiting in your craft room to see what challenges the New Year will bring. 

We are starting off we a really easy one here at the Shelter. Flower Extra Vaganza is our theme of the week. In other words; we want to see flowers and lots of it. It may be the image, the designer papers, the embellishments, but we want lots of it. Told you it was nice and easy, but one or two flowers is not enough, three or more and we'll be happy. You can enter up to three times in our challenges but at least of of those need to have a Paper Shelter product on it, either the digi images or designer papers / creation packs. There is a lovely new set of flowers up in the shop now, old fashion looking flowers. A real stunner, pop on over to the store and have a look for yourself. I am totally in love with it and plan to use it as soon as I can.

We had an amazing turn out for our last challenge of the year but then it was a "Anything goes" of course, but over 300 entries and that is smashing! We have a winner of that challenge and that is number #27, Coops
