OTHER NEWS

Anne our wonderful Challenge Co-ordinator has decided to step down.  Anne has not been crafting for some time now and feels that she has lost touch with the crafting community a little.  On behalf of the Ooh La La Team I would like to say a huge thank you to Anne for all of her hard work as Challenge Co-ordinator, you will be sincerely missed Anne.

Also, Susan is leaving the Design Team, she is working more hours and also looking after her Grandchildren more often so has a lot less hours to craft.  We are sorry that you are leaving Susan, you will be missed.

Finally, I would like to thank everyone that entered our recent DT Call, after careful consideration we asked Julie Woolston if she would like to join the team and she said YES.  Julie will be joining us for our next challenge on 6th June.

Challenge #203 - Photo Inspiration
chosen by Allison

#1 - Jenny (Jeni's Craftroom)

Love the hand made flowers and the way Jeni has taken inspiration from the colours in the photograph.

Congratulations Jenny!
Please email Wendi at wenem@ooh-la-la-creations.com with your choice of

I think the way Gerda has taken inspiration from the brick wall in the photograph and bringing the texture to the front of her card is really clever.

#3 - Ma-Mi (Rilcek in Kljuncek)

I think Ma Mi has been so clever just taking the car as inspiration for the tyre tracks on this card.

Congratulations to all our winners.

Challenge #203


Hello everyone, Alli here.  Firstly, thank you for all your lovely entries for the last challenge.
It is my choice this week and I have decided to go with.... Photo Inspiration.

I saw this wonderful bit of upcycling outside a garden centre near my Dad's house.
So, take a look at what our great design team have come up with and pop over to their blogs to leave them a little love and look at some of their fabulous work.
Then it is over to you - you don't have to use an Ooh La La image to enter but there are some freebies available on The Ooh La La website

Good Luck, I'm looking forward to see all your ideas 
Alli x
