Weekly Challenge - "Finders Keepers"

Ooh - my turn to set the challenge theme this week, I'm all excited! The theme is one I've had in my head for a while, it's ...
"Finders Keepers"
Basically, this challenge is to create something using, or inspired by, something that you have found.

So I want you to keep your eyes open this week as you go about your day, have a good look round, scour the ground, and search for the inspiration that's all around you just waiting to be discovered!

Perhaps you'll discover beauty in an item that someone has tossed away, thinking it wasn't worth keeping. Perhaps you'll come back from a walk in the park laden with found treasures - acorns, pine cones or leaves! Perhaps you'll find a discarded note on the street and imagine a story behind it!

NB - "Finding" something on the shelf of a craft store is cheating, and will be dealt with most severely! ;)

Anyone can join in - to enter the challenge you just need to come up with something creative inspired by this week's theme! Then post your entry on your blog, and add a link in the comments to this post.

All challenge entries will be posted here on Sunday at 12 noon EST. Or thereabouts!

We also have a monthly giveaway open to anyone who participates in one of our challenges - watch this space for more details!

Happy hunting and see you back here on Sunday! x

Challenge Week - "The Power of Words"

Hey hey! yup it's crunch time!

I have been thinking for quite a few days now, what challenge to come up with this week. Last night I broke out in cold sweat becos my brains gave up on me! I was actually thinking to go on my knees and beg Lisa W to sneak in a challenge for me this morning since she's the master with words!

Then it dawned upon me ... !

And I did have a challenge to present to you guys after all! So here's inspired by Lisa W...

Your WOrdS, Your ARt, Your TaKE :)
