Time Out #105 -our 4th Birthday!

Hi All

At Time Out we are having a celebration as it is our 4th Birthday!!

Yes, we have been around for 4 years now! Hard to believe we have all been taking TIME OUT to craft together for this long.

I want to thank you all for your support and hope you have had as much fun as I have. Without you we could not have got the grand old age of 4!!

I want to thank my Design Team for all the work they have done. Some of the team have been with us now for 4 years and we have added to the team with some more amazing designers who have been with us for at least 2 years now. I thank you all for the support you give me, your hard work and continual inspiration.

To celebrate our 4th Birthday we have a fun quote for you that we hope will inspire you to create.
You can use any of the words in this quote-just one of them if you want. Or perhaps the whole quote makes you want to create. We don't mind, we just can't wait to see what you make.

We are very excited as this challenge is sponsored by Concord and 9th-a new sponsor for us this year. We love their products and you will see the Design Team have used many of their products to show you how amazing they are!

Concord and 9th are joining in with celebrations on their blog-check it out here to see how they are partying along with us!

Thank you Concord and 9th for all your support.

The winner of this challenge will get a $25 gift voucher to spend in their store!!
