Hello everyone,

First of all I would like to say thank you for joining us for our first challenge.  The wait has been like a never ending road for myself and my fabulous team.Secondly, I would like to thank you for actually reading this (perhaps I should have said that at the end for when you are losing the will to live!

The main reason for me setting up this blog is for all those people, who on occasion, enjoy making anything other than a cards, scrapbook pages and ATC's.  There are so many challenge blogs out there for such.  I just wanted another place to go for all those who like to express themselves using any other media.

I have added a page with a list of challenge blogs who accept altered/mixed media.  Some will have themes however it does us a chance to enter.  There will be a comments box for anyone visiting who would like to share any places they know that we don't or have just simply forgotten.  We will appreciate it as much as everyone else participating in our challenges.  We all want to know where to go play lol.

Our challenges go live on the first of every month and the theme will always be ANYTHING GOES so everyone has the chance to bare their souls in their art.

Before I go any further, you may have noticed there are no winner badges yet - I just have not kicked myself hard enough to sort them yet.  I will though I promise.

Entries are unlimited - I think exposure is important when so much time and effort has been taken to produce works of art.  I do not want anyone feeling their work is not good enough to enter our challenges.  We are all our own worst critics and there is no such thing of anyone being better than others - we are individuals and should remain as such.

Enough rambling from me although I do have one more thing to say.....( I hear a lot of sighing going on in the background lol )

Thing is I want to thank all of my wonderfully talented DT who have agreed to join me on this journey.  Without them this would not be happening and I love them all.  I just cannot wait for you all to see their really fabulous creations.  I am so proud of them all.

Now go see for yourselves.........

  20. Congrats on the new blog. The DT work is stunning xxx

  21. This is a really cool idea! I found this blog from a lady who is on Splitcoast Stampers (she had a link). I would love to add some stuff even though I'm a terrible critic of myself. Maybe someone would like what I've done and give me some honest feedback - even if you don't like it, tell me how I can improve.

    I do have a question...I don't understand how you know what I have done. How do I "show" you my creation? Can you explain it in simple English? I don't know techy talk and have only basic literacy on computers. Thanks.

  22. Hi Stamp Wizard
    There is a blue frog to click on for you to leave a link to your project on your blog. We look forward to seeing your works xx

  23. Elaine
    Hi! Well, I've added my link and my first photo (mouse trap) but I don't see a blue frog and I can't figure out how to add more photos. Any ideas/help would be appreciated (from anyone). Sandra

  24. Hi Sandra
    The blue frog is on the blue label saying add your link. I just checked and it is still there - so am unsure as to what to suggest hun x

  25. Elaine
    OH!!!!! I see the VERY TINY frog face!!!! However, when I use that, it asks again for my url. Which I then put in and click on the next button. Then it says that link already exists and redirects me back to the home page. I've already added my link...this is so frustrating since I am technology dumb. Thanks. sandra

  26. Hi
    It won't let you post from the same url.. you have to post a new project.Don't worry though as anyone who visits your link to the mousetraps will see your other pics. x


Thank you for dropping by and we appreciate your comments - really we do.
