I'm late for a very important date!

Evening All!

I am so sorry this is late! eeek! Been having 'puter problems... but I am back now, if not a little late!
We have a new challenge for you this week, its Sunday and you know what that means!

We had so many awesome entrants into our fathers day/ male challenge last week! Dont forget to check back on the challenge blog to see if you were one of lucky winners!

This fortnight we have an eaaaaaaasy peasy challenge for you!

Use Ribbon

Ya ha! And we have the most AMAZING sponsor and prize!
We are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and one lucky winner could win this:

How freakin' awesome is that!
So onto my creation for this challenge!
As you may know by now... my sister in law is getting married! Have I mentioned that yet ;)
Anyway... she has a few children coming to the wedding and wanted something to entertain them during the wedding breakfast and the speeches!

I saw a really awesome creation by Crafty Anny here. That is what I based my colouring book creation on!

I created 5 little colouring books to keep the little ones occupied! I used the complete set of Murtle and Shelly set from Digi Stamp Boutique HERE. They were awesome fun to colour, and as my sister in law has two tortoises, Esio and Trot hehe! I couldnt resist using the tortoises :)

I thought the personalization made it more unique to them, rather than just a colouring book! Inside there are 20 images taken from the awesome colouring pages website and they will have a little bucket with some crayons and pencils etc. Really sweet!

Here is the inside of one of them.... I wasnt sure what to put on the inside so decided to leave it blank.... I guess my sister can add something if she wants too!

The packs are tied together with white ribbon, they look so sweet all together!

These were incredibly cheap to make! And so much more fun than just buying a colouring book! Woo Hoo

Anyway I do hope you will join us for our challenge! We all love ribbon, right? You've got 2 weeks to create something ribbony! I can't wait to see what you create :)
