TOP 3: Challenge No. 131

Welcome, crafty bloggers! We had a fantastic turnout with a whopping 196 entries for our last challenge! Yay!
Don't forget! We will be taking a short break through till September 6th. We have a wonderful challenge planned for that day. As always, it will be anything goes but we will be adding one of my favorite twists! I'm gonna give you all a heads up so you can plan ahead cause I know I love it when challenge blogs offer that! :) It will be a 'recipe' challenge and the recipe is use flowers, die cuts, ribbons and pearls or buttons. If you chose to use the twist, you don't have to use all of these embellishments but it should be a combination of these items. Again... the challenge will still be anything goes and I have a surprise prize for one lucky winner! You'll have to come back to get more deets about that though! :) We will announce the winner and TOP 3 for Challenge No. 132 on Thursday, September 7th. Ooooo... what a suspenseful break! lol We hope to see you then!
Our last challenge was JFF (just for fun - no prize) and I want to thank each of you who participated!
Now for our TOP 3! Three members from my 'Dream Team' selected as our TOP 3 in no particular order:
Congratulations and well done! Please grab our TOP 3 badge from our side bar to the right.

We hope you will join us for Challenge No. 132! Thank you so very much for choosing to play along with us!

Anything Goes Challenge No. 132

Hiya, fellow crafty peeps!
Welcome to Challenge No. 132 sponsored by The Paper Nest Dolls!
This challenge will run through till Tuesday, July 25th. We will be back tomorrow to announce our TOP 3 for Challenge No. 131. Then my 'Dream Team' and I will be taking a break until Wednesday, September 6th. But what a great way to go into a break! We will all be in suspense to find out who is the winner of the wonderful prize from The Paper Nest Dolls on Thursday, July 26th!
I really hate to take a break right now, but I was the victim of a spider bite that has just turned my world upside down and not because I'm hanging from the ceiling by some silken threads! lol :p The guilty suspect is a wolf spider and I had a really bad reaction. I was bitten on the left side of my waist and it swelled, burned and itched something awful. At first... now it's down to a dull, throbbing ache. Some days, it feels like I can conquer the world... other days... I think the world will conquer me! :p So anyway, I am hoping that taking a bit of a break to focus on my health will turn the tables and I'll be up and ready to resume life when it's all over and done with. Thank you to the three of you who took the time to wish me well! It did not go unnoticed! :D <3 I was touched you took time to leave me a kind word. :)
For now, please enjoy some creations from my Team and me using some super cute images from The Paper Nest Dolls!
