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. If you don't have a blog you can email your projects to me at anne_oohlala@yahoo.co.uk and I will add them to the blog. Most importantly HAVE FUN!

Challenge #166

Hello again everyone and Happy Monday to you all.  Got some bad news and some good news for you today.  Unfortunately Dawn and Daniele are both stepping down from the DT as life has got in the way for both of them and they just can't spread themselves any thinner.  Hope things get easier girls and a humungous thank you to both of you for all your hard work in helping to make this challenge blog such a success.  Wendi, myself and the DT all hope you will pop in and see us when you can.

As for the good news .... you'll need to wait till next time for that!!

I work as a qualified LEAN practitioner. Over the years I have always made things and tried new crafty hobbies. I've done macrame (in the 70s when it was all the rage!), crochet, knitting, dressmaking, quilling, pergamano, fimo, stencilling, my own chocolate Easter eggs!, x-stitching, scrapbooking and cards.

 May I also introduce you to Joan of Discoveries who is our Guest Designer this month
