Sorry to be so late with the latest Challenge results but we have just got back from a great few days in Surrey - teaching and demoing at The Craft Barn.  It was such fun to meet so many of you on Saturday and Sunday, and to see the lovely ideas everyone had for decorating their projects in the class on Friday.

However as this post is all about the Challenge really, I will chat more about the weekend we had in the next post.

Daniele was in charge of this Challenge, and has kindly chosen her 5 'winners' for us.  Once again the entries on the theme of 'A Summer's Ball' were beautiful - check them all out HERE, and I must thank everyone who linked in their entry, plus Gail who submitted her entry by email.  You can visit the blogs concerned just by clicking on the thumbnails!

Here are Daniele's five this time around:

Firstly we have a superb page layout by Asia King - who has used a strip of images from our Film Strip Glossy in her project:

And then another adorable project by May, with a beautifully stamped version of our dancing lady stamp CI-346:

Plus a very pretty item by Joan using several of our products including an image from image book People and Places 2 (love that lady!):

And a beautifully decorated 'dance invitation' card by Katie, again using CI-346 - very appropriate for this particular challenge:

Last, but not least, as the saying goes we have a great summery card layout by Crafty Lou, featuring CI-152 :

Once again I must say what lovely entries they all were, and do have a look at the appropriate blogs as there are some very imaginative stories behind a lot of the entries this time.  Thanks to all, and if your project features above please contact us at, with your address and choice of stamp, by way of our little thank you.

Hope the images help cheer us all up during this dismal summer we are having in the UK - at least there is little talk of droughts at the mo!

Back soon with an update on our latest exciting products just released on our CI WEBSITE, and more info as promised on the Extravaganza weekend.
