Well done to you and if you e-mail me, I’ll pass your details on to Mary and hugest thanks to The Ribbon Girl for sponsoring us xx

I love this cute little bookmark : )



OK, onto this week and it’s time for another

Take Your Pick

In case you aren't familiar with how it works,  the last challenge of every month has several themes and you simply take your pick from them.
There’s a sketch, a colour theme, a product theme and a technique theme to choose from.

You can use any theme and if you want to, you can combine two or more.


So  here are this month’s  themes  -

Colour theme

White Plus One – excluding skin and hair.



Technique theme

Pleating – please feel free to use whatever you want here.
So it could be fabric, ribbon, lace, paper – anything you want.



Product theme

Use a ‘quote’ stamp


Sketch

Sketch #100

But don’t forget as always,  if you would prefer to use another sketch, then please feel free to use any Papertake Weekly sketch you fancy,
and just add the number of the sketch you’ve chosen when you post the link back to us :)

To make life a bit easier, we now have a sketches page at the top here so there are a fair old few to choose from.
Hopefully this will save you having to go back through the archives to find one that you like :)

As always, please feel free to resize, flip and rotate the elements - as long as you can still see the sketch, it’s completely fine so fill yer boots!!!

So all you have to do is simply  Take You Pick!!
I hope that this all makes sense but please feel free to email either myself or any of the PTW girls if you have any queries or questions.



As it’s the last challenge of the month, we are sponsored by those fabulous people across the pond.

Yes it’s the one and only and utterly fab
