Challenge # 394 - Face it! (Any face will do...)

Morning and hello! 
It has been a long time since I wrote one of these posts for the Paper Shelter. I hope that your summer has been good or winter if you're on the other side of the world. I had a good rest, but also an inflammation in my shoulder. But most of all have I spent my time on my mountain bike. We don't have many mountains where I live but for now it's fine. I kind of want to go back to Scotland again, this time by bike. Crazy, maybe but you can always dream can't you? Ok, seems like I waddled off here for a bit. We have a new theme to try out, for the first time we are giving you

Face it!
We want to see faces on your creations, the bigger the better. It doesn't have to be a human one but it might be easiest. Take a look at the fabby creations from the team and you find plenty of inspiration.

Please do check our rules before entering your creation. They are just a few and very simple. 
Make sure you follow the theme of the week!


We are keeping our friend Mr Random around to help us to pick a winner from our challenges. He has done such a good job before so we thought he keep doing what he does best...

You have won three digis of your choice. Enjoy you winnings! You have to claim your prize before Saturday this week.Veroncia will help sort out your prize. Use the contact tab above in the main bar of the blog. Write "Winner TPS challenge nr XXX (number of the challenge you have won). You have until Saturday during the current challenge to claim your prize. Hope that you will come and play with us again!


As always, we have a gift voucher up worth $30 when you play with the Paper Shelter brand. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digis of your choice. You can enter our challenges up to three times, but at least one of your creations needs to have a TPS image on it.

A little reminder that we do our best to leave you all a comment or two with the challenge rules in mind. Our team members don't have to comment if you enter more than 10 challenges with your creation. We don't require our teamies to comment on your creation if you enter with any other social media than a blog as we don't all use Google + or other accounts. But you are more than welcome to join our challenges this way. 😊

As always the team is the best and keep up with my strange and sometimes hopefully fun challenges. You don't know how hard it is to come up with good challenges each and every week if you have not tried it yourself. We do our best to keep them as simple as posible to get as many of as we can to play along with us. We just don't want to be an "Anthing goes" challenge every week, we want a little bit more. However it's nice to have the AG's from time to time as well, but we seldom call them that. So I thought, what do you want to see coming up as challenges here at the Shelter? Any suggestions, send them to me on my email which you find on my blog, or leave the suggestion in the comment box and they might show up in the future. It might take a while as we are kind of set for the year, but after that... A new year, a new beginning...

Don't be a stranger and please leave a little foot print in the sand...

Love n hugs
Marie and the B-Team girls




Lena using Rose




Edited: Will be late due to heavy headaches
Card will be added later on today.

your claim is for, also you must make sure you claim your prize by Saturday this week.

As always our sponsors for this Challenge are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a really fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their store.


I know that you have heard this before, but this will only be given if you have used one of our products on your card which could be either an Image, Paper or Printable. However, even if you haven't used an item from The Paper Shelter and you are picked as a winner you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice so I'm sure you will agree that its still worth taking part in our Challenges.

The team is up and raring to go but before I show you their stunning cards I want you to welcome yet another brand new Team Member and that is Isabelle she is extremely talented and I do hope that you will pay her a visit and leave her some love to welcome her to The Paper Shelter. Not sure if Danny is able to be with us as she is due back from her holiday this week and didnt manage to get anything arranged before she went, its possible she might join us later. But I do want to welcome all the rest of the Team back and I hope you all enjoyed your break, and now without any further chatting here are their beautiful cards.
