Challenge #183

Hi everyone!  One of the reasons I chose Happy Birthday is that there is a whole host of birthdays in July for my family ... from my oldest daughter Nikki, 37 on 5th July to my youngest daughter Jenny, 22 on the 1st.  My oldest Grand-daughter Sinead will be 17 on the 29th July, and my youngest Grandchild is due on the 25th!...
Love

Challenge #182

Well it's that time of year again when we all start thinking about Summer. Whether it's long lazy days at the beach, time spent in our gardens or maybe off to a music festival, the possibilities are endless. With that in mind I have chosen ...
'Here Comes Summer' 
for our theme this time. Do take time to look at the DT cards and pop over to the girls blogs and leave them some love.  Here's my card using the Paula Oakley Collection CD.  I look forward to seeing all your entries.

Welcome Joan, we hope you enjoy your time with Ooh La La Creations.

Challenge #181

Good Morning everyone, Wynn here and it's my turn to choose the challenge theme.
 It's 'Circles and Squares', so you can let your imagination run wild with this one. It could be reflected in your layout or the images you use. You could also use up all those left over bits and pieces of background papers that you have hoarded away and simply cut them into squares and circles to make interesting backgrounds........it's up to you, so you see the sky's the limit when, like me, you let your imagination run away with you!! Have Fun!!!

Challenge #180

Hi everyone and welcome to the latest Ooh La La challenge, but before I tell you more, I must thank everyone who entered our last challenge.  To see the winners please scroll down.

Back now to today, and I've chosen "Use a pre-coloured image."  This can be from a crafting CD, an artist pad or a precoloured sheet, it's up to you. 

Now I have to confess, up till recently, I'd have regarded cards made this way as cheating a bit, but not any more!  They are still lots of fun to make, they still need artistic flair - all they do is save you a bit of time!

So what are you waiting for???  Hopefully lots of you will join in the fun.  The challenge runs for 2 weeks and to get you in the mood, here's what the lovely DT ladies came up with...

I'm a legal secretary who pushes paper all day so I come home each night and push more paper :) I'm lucky to have a husband who also has hobbies so he understands when I become involved in a project. I have an adult daughter who is a specialized veternarian technician that I'm very proud of. I am mom to 2 beagles and 3 cats. I love stained glass and gardening as well as cardmaking and scrapbooking.
