PAPERTAKE WEEKLY IS 5

I had a lovely email from Dawny recently asking if I'd like to take part in Papertake Weekly's birthday celebrations.  I jumped at the chance !!  Papertake Weekly is very dear to me as it was the very first design team I was part of.  I have very fond memories of 2007 ! 

Dawny has taken the challenge blog from strength to strength, so huge congratulations to her and to Papertake Weeky on it's 5th Birthday.  Check out all the fabulous prizes and creations here.

Come back next week when I will reveal the prize that was hidden on my blog and the winner !
