A warm welcome to the Ooh La La Challenge Blog. A new challenge will be posted here every other Monday. We hope you will join us whenever possible.

Anyone can join in, all you have to do is follow the theme then showcase your project on our blog. We love to see you using OLL images and/or papers but it's not necessary to enter. If you'd like to try some OLL designs click on the link to the shop on the sidebar as there are some fantastic freebies for you there.

Please post your project on your blog with a link to our challenge, most importantly HAVE FUN!

Challenge #46

Hi one and all. All the festivities are well past now and everything is back to 'normal', whatever that is! Thanks to all who joined in our last challenge and we look forward to seeing you again this time.

Our challenge this fortnight is something that takes me out of my comfort zone but I did enjoy doing it so you may well see me using this technique again.

Challenge #46 - Distressing

To join in the challenge, please post your design onto your blog with a link to our challenge and leave us a comment with a link to your work. If you don't have a blog please email your project to me at the address on the sidebar. You can combine our challenge with any others you wish. It is not essential that you use an OLL product on your creation but of course we love it if you do.

If you don't have any OLL designs there are some lovely freebies in the shop for you to try before you buy. Wendi and Emma also have a new CD coming out soon and there are some sneak previews on Wendi's blog. From what I've seen it looks like another showstopper.

Last and by no means least, we will be inviting a challenger to be our new guest designer for March/April chosen from the entries from this, and the next, challenge. Get your mojo working ladies - you could be our next GD.
