Time Out Challenge #1

I am very excited because today is our first challenge at Time Out Challenges. I have been planning this challenge with my very dear friend Nonni for quite a few months now. We have now established a fabulous Design Team and are ready with the first challenge in our rota which we call:

Inspired by Words

This is a bit like the code and cue word challenges but we use a bunch of words rather than just one. We will use proverbs, quotes and popular sayings to inspire you. We are starting off with a very popular saying for our first challenge and it is:

Dancing in the Rain

All you need to do is create a paper crafting project that is inspired by this saying. For example you could focus on any of these words on their own. Here are just a few ideas that come to me whilst writing this-raindrops, umbrellas, dance steps, water splashes and I could go on! Just let us know what it is that has inspired you.

Or you could do as I have....and use the whole saying to inspire you, just see where this saying takes your creativity!



All these stamps are from Inkylicious and I loved the sentiment. I stamped and fussy cut the purple umbrella and added glossy accents to it to represent the rain-quite hard to see this in the photo but IRL does look really glossy!

This week as it is our first challenge we have 2 sponsors. Make the Day Special , who are offering our winner a £10 gift voucher and Avocado Arts who are offering our winner one product from their fabulous store.

Time to see what a new DT have created to inspire you, check it out here.

Then take some TIME OUT and join in the fun.

I will enter this into the following challenges
 CAS-ual Fridays-shades of gray
Crazy 4 Challenges-be sentimental
The Sisterhood of Crafters-sentimental journey
