Weekly Challenge and Winners {April Week 3}

Hi everyone Darcy here. Last week Julie Ann  ended her semester with us, and oh wow she has gone out with a bang! If you missed it then do go back and check out the amazing journal cover that she created, so beautiful. We also had a really fun Easter ornament from Katrina and a super little mini frame book by Michelle. To round off the week, Helen came back and created a great shabby chic tag. 

Don't forget you have less than 2 weeks to enter your journal pages into this month's challenge. HERE

Thanks to everyone who joined in and made projects last week.We, and the designers truly love seeing your creations.  And thank you also for all the comments left on blog posts.It means a lot to us all that you take the time to leave comments.

Sit back, and get ready for another great week ahead....starting with a super SURPRISE!

3. P.A.Weekly Challenge from....{Ellen and other guests}

Ellen  will be joined in the latter part of the week with other surprise guests, and of course, if you are inspired by any item you see on the blog this week, then please share what you get up to, and link your creativity here on the weekly challenge link. 

Your challenge entry can link to your own blog, Pinterest or Flickr pages, or any webpage that shows us what you have made in response to the posts on the blog this week. Just make sure you come back to this post, and use the linking tool below to show us your entry. We have extended the challenge entry deadline to 5pm on Sunday evenings.

Make sure on Sunday 20th April by 17:00 (5pm London time) you need to have your link entered below, and you will go into one of 2 draws to win new stuff.

To help you find the linky tool when you need it, just look at the final green paragraph on each blog post, there you will find a link that brings you back to this post.

Weekly Challenge guidelines
The first draw is for every single entry listed, so if you have multiple entries, you get entered multiple times. 

The second draw is only for one entry per name, and the winner of Draw 1 is not included in this second draw. Having 2 draws makes it fair for everyone, no matter how many times you can join in during the week.

As this challenge is to show how you have been inspired to action by this week's designer, make sure in your blog post you explain what prompted you to create.

Please don't feel you need to copy a designer's work exactly, it may be one small aspect or idea that you want to explore that sends you into the creative zone. You are also welcome to use any stamps/ products / substrates you have to hand, we do not expect you to exclusively use PA products - but of course it is lovely when you do!

The winners are announced Sunday evenings in the 7pm blog post (as above). It is your responsibility to check back and see if you have won. If you are a winner, email Darcy with the name of the stamp you would like, and your snail address. We do not chase people for unclaimed prizes.

If we are away at an event, then the winners post would generally be updated by Monday evening with draw details.
