Well in a last minute rush on the last day of the month, we've received our final entries for the 'month of love'. We're really thrilled that so many of you are participating in our challenges....and all for 'shits and giggles'!

First off we have an A4 journal page from Katrina with her first entry to S & G with a wonderful goth-inspired mixed media that background!

Next we have a 6x6 layout from Leesie who tells us that she hasn't scrapped for a couple of years and doesn't think this layout is 'really her'. We think it's very sweet and hope she'll have another go next month...

And finally another page from Sue's A5 journal with this lovely page. Love your take on this month's challenge Sue, and that flower is super-cute!

Thanks to all of you talented artists for playing along this month.....we're so glad you're enjoying our 'challenges with a difference'.  Don't forget to check back tomorrow for the March challenge.


Here are a few more entries received for our February Challenge.We just love what ha been created by all of the artists. Each entry is so fresh and new and individual. Thank you for joining in on the fun girls and we hope to see a few more entries in our inbox tomorrow before the next big challenge is revealed.

A simply stunning 6x6 layout created by Anne, we love how you have just used the word SHOP as your statement on your layout and we do have a weakness for butterflies too ... fantastic.

A lovely layout from Tiddlypeep...we  just love what you have done with the stencil and the poppy flower is very feminine

A few cards have been done this time round - our first one is a playing card created by Trish, love how you have kept with a true valentines theme and used the red and your sterling silver carbochon is divine.

Finally another ATC card from Leigh love how you have incorporated the colors from the post but have given the whole art piece your own 'twist'

Thanks to these artists for emailing in their creations. We love to see all the different takes on the themes posted. We are hoping to have a few more to post up over the next few days and can't wait to share with you the next theme for March.

Please email pictures of your creations to plus your name and a link to your blog. We'll then upload all your beautiful work to this blog for everyone to appreciate.

February Shits and Giggles

Welcome to February's Challenge Quote - it is a time for love in the month of February and there were so many funnies to choose from but we whittled it down to a couple and then finally one, so here is your inspiration for the month of February.

Below is a little inspiration from some of the team.

Don't forget if you would like us to put in a link to your personal blog when we upload your art to send your link through with your Challenge submission email. Email your creations to by the end of February.

Enjoy all that Valentines Day has to offer... I personally am looking forward to eating chocolate even if I have to buy it myself.
