Child's play

Hello, it's Julie here - and it's my turn to host the challenge, I hope you've all had a good week and are ready for the weekend - and to make the weekend even more amazing our new challenge launches today!!   Whoop Whoop!!
But first of all we need to reveal the winners of our last challenge:  Use Lace
Well you don't make it easy for a girl to choose a winner do you? It's taken me ages to choose - not to mention adding lots more *needs* to my shopping lists seeing all the beautiful products you've used. (... now where did my husband leave his credit card?....)

First of all our random winner from last week was:
Congratulations chick you've won a prize from our fabulous sponsor Rick St Dennis.  So drop us an email to claim your prize.  The email address is on the sidebar!

And here's my top three:
Number 39: Nadell
Number 43: Nanda
Number 158: Nelly

How random - looks like it was a lucky week for you if your name began with N!!
Well done to all of you - make sure you grab our badge from the side bar.

So on to our new challenge, and our theme is Child's Play.  So we are looking for you to either make a creation either for a child or using an image of a child. Nice and simple.

And as always we have an amazing sponsor; for this challenge we are thrilled to have Live and Love Crafts  (I wonder if I could enter too???)

If the words vintage and shabby chic makes your heart beat faster, you will find your haven at Live & Love Crafts! 
Live & Love Crafts is a UK based online store that ships WORLDWIDE. The store is owned and operated by Sandra Mathis, a crafter who is as passionate about the vintage style as she is about customer service and providing a good shopping experience. Live & Love Crafts prides itself on having a website that is easy to navigate with excellent product images. Orders are dispatched fast; usually on the same day received.

Live & Love Crafts stocks a wide range of products from well-loved vintage brands such as Pion Design, Maja Design, Riddersholm Design, Kort & Godt, Magnolia, Prima, Melissa Frances, Maya Road, and the Tim Holtz/Ranger product lines.
The store has a vast selection of laces, ribbons and trims, an assortment of close to 200 charms and metal decorations, as well as many other unique embellishments that you can't find elsewhere. To help you save on costs, the charms/metal decos can be purchased singularly and all trims and ribbons are sold by the yard/meter. If you’re looking for products that will inspire and a one stop paper & embellishment shop, look no further than Live & Love Crafts!

Any how that's all from me you'll be pleased to hear - but before I go let me introduce the Stampin' for the Weekend design team and their stunning creations - with a special hello to our new teamies as they join us for their first challenge!!
