Have you been hoarding a favourite sheet of paper that is just soo nice you've been saving it ... go find it and USE it!!

I hope the DT projects inspire you!

Please remember to link directly to your project and not just your blog and to include a link back to the challenge.

Also, just a quick mention about blogger's word verification thingy ... we do try and visit every entry so it would be helpful if you could consider taking the word verification off your blog (if you have it!) as this would enable us to visit and comment much quicker!! My eyes go funny deciphering the letters!!! Thanks!

If you do not have a blog, please e mail your entry to me at sarah@sjpapercrafts.co.uk and I'll upload it for you.
We look forward to seeing your "favourites"!!!

Hi here I have used some of my favorite things. I wanted to do this without using pink, as although it really is my all time favorite, I wanted to think outside the box and be a bit more adventurous. So, DOILYS - you gotta love doilys. FLOWERS - where would we be without them. BUTTERFLIES - I probably add them to every page. LACE - also a gib favourite, here is lacy paper. CORRUGATED CARDBOARD - yes, and its free, an added bonus!!!
