Time Out Challenge is 1 year old today-Lets Celebrate!

We are celebrating our 1st Birthday today at Time Out Challenges.

When Nonni and I started to chat about starting our own challenge we had no idea if it would work but here we are one year later and we are still around and having fun! I want to thank you all for supporting us, with out you we would not be here. This last year has been so much fun and we have loved being inspired by all your wonderful cards. I would also like to thank our amazing Design Team who have all worked so hard to make our little challenge grow!

For this challenge we have this photo to inspire you. All our photo challenges are based around interior designs and this collection of brightly coloured frames would look great in any home. You may be inspired by the frames, the colours, the wood grain panels, the branch-just any thing that you spot that makes you want to create.

I decided to go with the bright frames and took the photography angle-especially as I have a niece who is studying photography!

All my cameras are from the Uniko stamp set Strike a Pose!

Our Guest Designer this week is Mandi. Her blog Faith Hope and Crafts is full if inspiring and creative projects. Take a look here and I am sure you will come away ready to craft!

As it is our Birthday Challenge we have some prizes naturally!

And our very own DT members Shery and Beverley have both very generously offered these prizes for this challenge.

-The winner chosen by our DT will get a $15 STAMPlorartions Gift Voucher and a £15 Uniko Gift Voucher 

-A randomly chosen winner will get a Celebration/Birthday stencil pack from STAMPlorations

Our DT and Mandi have come up with a fabulous collection of Birthday cards to inspire you-take a look here.

Now kick back and please take some TIME OUT and celebrate our 1st Birthday!
