Cupcake 181...Boys & Their Toys!

Good morning lovely crafters, its Donna here, posting this week’s challenge on behalf of our Cupcake Mummy Faye. She has been off enjoying a well-deserved break this weekend and we hope she had a fab time! First things first...we want to thank everyone who entered last week’s challenge...we had some amazing entries and Keeley had a really tough time choosing her Cupcake cuties!

I’m just popping on the reminder from last week regarding Word Verification appearing on some blogs, as it’s still causing the Cupcakes some problems when commenting. There seems to be a new version around which requires us to fill in two words so we can prove we're not machines. I totally understand why you may choose to use this, but I find it REALLY hard to see what the words are. As do a number of other people, including Cupcakes, I've spoken to about it. If I've still not sussed it after about three attempts, I generally give up. So, if you are using Word Verification, and you don't get a comment from us, we've tried, but just can't get through.

So without further ado here are the details of this week’s challenge which has been chosen by our lovely Cupcake Denise...

... BOYS AND THEIR TOYS ...

This is such a fun challenge and a great opportunity to dig out your male themed images and design papers! We all know how much boys like playing with their toys, whether they’re on the X-Box, PlayStation, fixing their cars or off fishing for the weekend! We’re pretty sure you’ll have lots of fun with this challenge and we really look forward to seeing your entries!

You have until 8pm, GMT on Sunday 4th March to place your entry for this Challenge
