We have lots of changes taking place!
One is that we will be working challenges between both the forum and here on the blog.
You will find the usual monthly challenges in the forum which will be now known as 'just for fun' challenges and understand how much some of us scrappers love creating to inspiring criteria.  Some may have RAK's attached too....

HOWEVER......(big smile)
Introducing our BLOG  Sketch Challenge, with one major prize of $50 shop credit  - well worth playing along.  Internationals are welcome however all our overseas postage is $50 and winners will be responsible for all postage costs
 The sketch can be loaded either into the gallery here or linked from your blog to our blog so we can go see your sketch LO.
You just need to leave your link to your blog post here in the comments section.  Make sure you link us back on your blog too. 
You have till midnight 31st July!
