Weekly Challenge and Winners {July:Week 3}

Hi everyone Darcy here. Last week Keren Baker  showcased several ways of making embellishments, lots of ideas that could be used on anything from cards to scrapbook layouts. Lin joined us, and showed step by step how to create a really bold journal cover. Then Alison returned with a really pretty,summery frame, colour mixing made it a wow! project. We ended the week with a newcomer to the blog, Jan, who made the most delightful JoFY themed card. 

Thanks to everyone who joined in and made projects last week.We thoroughly enjoy seeing your creations. We really appreciate it when you take the time to leave positive comments, it means so much to us and the designers. The newest journal challenge is also up, you can find all the details HERE. 

P.S. We have a new section in the sidebar. Look for the title 'The Classroom' under that heading you will find links to previous posts that we feel contain really useful techniques or product information. 

1. And the winners are...
 Random winner #1 from the First Challenge draw (every single entry linked, including multiple entries) is: Shirley-bee

2. The week ahead...
This week we welcome back Penny Nuttall Over on Penny's blog you will see another of her utterly genius rock projects. Who knew rocks could be so fabulous. Here is her 'rock goddess'

Now that we, at last, have some summer... penny has been getting in the spirit by creating this beach holiday themed piece. Using driftwood and different sizes of microscope slides she has made this delightful scene. I love how we can see through each layer. 

Get ready for another week of inspiration. 

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

Penny 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 July 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.
