Challenge - 28 - Sketch

Hello everyone. 
This week there is s sketch for you to try. 
Please follow the sketch as closely as possible. You may change the size of the elements, but pls do not move them around. All links that I feel have not followed the sketch correctly will be deleted. 

Also when using Mr Linky could you please link to your exact post not your blog. I will change it, but it will make it much easier for me and everyone else if you link to the exact post
And remember that it is only for those entering the challenge. I have been getting quite a few links that are advertising or the person has not entered the challenge. Thank You 

This week we have a wonderful sponsor The Cutting Cafe. Regina is offering the winner 3 sets of their choice! How good is that.

The Design Team were also given the All About Cupcakes set. I am sure they all had a lot of fun using it. Its so cute. 

This was the second and final week Donna and Jeanette will be joining us. I want to say that I have enjoyed having them on the team. They make gorgeous cards. Keep your eye out for future DT calls girls! *There is one coming up very soon* 

Anyway here are the teams creations.

Challenge - 27 - Alter Something

Hey All, 
Sorry about the lateness of this post. This week the challenge was set by Jenny, this is what she chose. 
I think mine might be an altered item - a box  that once contained choccies, or pringles tubes - I expect most of us crafters have saved a few nice boxes and things that could come in useful at some point!  so my challenge will be to alter something.

Pop back later for the winner of last weeks challenge and the Top 5. 

This week we are joined by two fabulous Guest Designers Jeanette and Donna. Just look at their gorgeous creations....

Challenge 25 - Colour Challenge - Top 5 and Guest Designers

In lasts weeks post I mentioned that there would be two guest designer positions as a prize, I also said that one would be picked by me and the other chosen at random. I changed my mind because there is an upcoming Design Team Call in a couple of weeks. So I thought it would be fairer to chose both the guest designers at random. So using Random.org to pick the numbers...
14 and 24 
that means our guest designers for the next two weeks are.... 
Well done to you both. Could you please send me an email. For more information. Thank You. 
Now for the Top 5 *drum roll please* ..... 

You may now add the Top 5 blinkie to your blog if you wish. xx

Hi everyone and thank you for such a great response to last week's challenge. My name is Jen and it's my turn to set the challenge for this week which is "Make a Scene". You can create anything you like - a card, scrapbook page, ATC etc.

We are sponsored this week by Helping Hands Templates and CDs, and we have their latest CD "Scenes To Decorate" as a prize. This CD is perfect to use with all sorts of stamps.

I hope you have fun making a scene this week and good luck in the draw.

Pop back soon for the announcement of the Guest Designers and Top 5.

We are using Mister Linky again. To create a link, paste your URL and add your name. Its a simple as that.

Challenge - 25 - Colour Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to challenge # 25 here on Cupcake Craft Challenges. This week Donna has set the challenge and decided on a colour challenge. You MUST use only the colours that are in the ovals. The colours are listed as Stampin Up! colours, but if you don't have them feel free to use a similar shade.  Your entry will not be counted if I feel that you have not followed the guidelines correctly. 

This week you have a chance to be a guest designer for two weeks. 1 person will be randomly chosen and the other picked by me. If you do not want to be a guest designer, let me know in your comment and you will not be included in the drawing. 

To be considered for the Top 5 or these 2 guest designer position please have your entry linked by Monday morning. Please pop back soon for this weeks Top 5.  

I have decided to use Mr Linky again. Some of you may know that it has been used in the past, but then I had troubles with my account. It seems to be working again so I'll give it another go. The comments section will be left open for questions and comments. 

Here are the Design Team's take on the challenge...
