Sir Stampalot Challenge and Birthday

It's the first of the month again and a bit of a special day for us at Sir Stampalot Challenge, because it's out Birthday.........woohoooooooooo..........we are one year old today. And what a fabulous year it has been, the support from all of you lovely bloggers out in blogland has been phenomenal and of course it's you who have made our challenge such a success. Thank you one and all. Now as well as our Birthday it's April Fools Day !! So this means not only a brand new challenge, but we've also got something a bit special lined up with a twist or two.

But let me tell you about the April challenge first, the theme has been selected by our very own Lady (Janice) Stampalot who has chosen: "Ladies and Fashion"

And here is my creation for the challenge

I wonder what you will come up with for this one, I can see so many possibilities and am so looking forward to seeing all your entries. For one lucky winner, this is the prize on offer from Sir Stampalot:

So now for the real fun bit.........this month the Design Team will be displaying their work on their own blogs only. And on the challenge blog we have a collection of photo's and pieces of artwork.............they were going to be jumbled all up, but that would be a bit too wicked, so they have been paired up.......a picture of each DT member along with a piece of their work which they have selected which they think best depicts their style of crafting, plus a snippet from their DT piece for the month. Have you guessed what you need to do......that's right, you have to decide which of our Design Team fits which mystery DT member. When you think you have the answers E-mail with your list. There will be three small prizes on offer selected from those with all or the most correct pairings that reach Brenda before 25th April. Any after that date will not be included.

This is also for the following challenges:-

1. Stamptacular Sunday - challenge # 104 - No Kids Allowed

2. Fussy & Fancy - week 33 - Use a zipper or a fether (I chose a feather)

3. Card Makin' Mamas - challenge # 18 - Embellish it

Thank you for popping by my blog, have a good weekend.

Happy crafting
