Challenge #485 - Activity, Hobby or Job

 Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well the time has come for me to hand over the leadership of the A Team to a very talented crafter as I promised to do so two weeks ago, and so I want you all to welcome and wish her

Linda Mc Enery

all the best in her new job. I want to thank her and the both A&B Teams, Vannessa and Veronica for allowing me to be such an integral part of The Paper Shelter for so long, I'm sincerely going to miss it and I do want to thank you too all the contributors of entries who have taken part in all the Challenges I have been part of, so goodbye and all the best to you all.


Good Morning TPS lovers!  Linda here...

First, I would like to thank Shirley for her beautiful introduction and take the time to say what I think we all feel, that Shirley's name is synonymous with The Paper Shelter's, and I can't even imagine this challenge without her running it.  Her creative talent, dedication, hard work and loving care have been the cornerstone of building The Paper Shelter into what it is today, and she has been a pillar of support and encouragement for both teams.  I'm sure I speak for Veronica, Vannessa, both design teams, and you, our loyal supporters, in wishing Shirley the very, very best as she pursues the next chapter of her life.  Though it is with sadness in our hearts that we wish her a fond farewell, we send her off with lots of love ♥️

With big shoes to fill, let's move on to this week's theme:


There's lots to explore there!  Whether it's a favourite activity like going for a walk with the dog, swimming in the ocean, gardening, or our favourite hobby, crafting, or maybe a career, like being a policeman, fireman, or stay at home mum.  They'd all fit this week's theme.

Before we get to Team A's inspiration this week, let's find out who the winner is from last week's PARTY TIME challenge.

Congratulations ana_de_anuscrap!  What a beautiful project!

You have won a $30 gift certificate!

We have a quick and easy way for you to claim your prize: Just click on the CONTACT tab at the top of the page, which will take you to a form where you can list your choices from The Paper Shelter store.  Please include "Challenge #482" to help Veronica spot your choices, and please make sure you claim your prize by this coming weekend.

Up for grabs this week is a $30 voucher from our generous sponsor The Paper Shelter, to spend in their store.

This fantastic prize will only be available if our randomly chosen winner has used one of our products on your project.  This could be an image, paper or printable.  

You can still be a winner, even if you haven't used one of our products, winning 3 digi images of your choice from The Paper Shelter store, so it's still worth entering!

You can submit 3 entries into our challenge, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.

We're seeing so many more entries using The Paper Shelter products lately, meaning our winners are getting to enjoy the grand prize of $30 to spend in the store, which is fantastic!

This week, the A Team have put together a gorgeous set of inspiration projects for our theme ACTIVITY/HOBBY or JOB!

You can enter the challenge with up to 3 entries, provided at least one of them carries a product from The Paper Shelter.  If not, none of the entries will be eligible for any prizes.

We're looking forward to seeing how you interpret this week's theme

Oh Linda, thank you for such a lovely post that's such a sweet thing to say, mind you the photo of me is a bit old but its probably better than a later on of me. All the best for your Leadership and I know you are going to do a brilliant job with the help of Vannessa of looking after and promoting The Paper Shelter.
Thank you all for being such wonderful friends, with love and hugs to you all, Shirleyxxxxx
