Challenge #13 - Ohhhhhh Brad, ohhhh Janet....... and mini DT Call

So actually the challenge has nothing to to do with The Rocky Horror Picture Show, I just thought the challenge title was catchy :)


This week we would like to see......


Brads, Gems or Dewdrops on your projects.


so get out your bling and get blinging.


We have another 2 fabby sponsors for this challenge who we will get to know a little more about shortly but first some news.


We are sadly saying goodbye to Carol this week, she has decided to step down from the DT and pursue some new avenues. We will miss Carol in our chats plus of course her Gorgeous layouts. So we need to say hello to someone new..... we just don't know who it is yet, so we are having a mini DT CALL, if you think you would like to be on our team please put DT after your name on Mr Linky (if you are from NZ or AUS your name would look like this.... BonnieBell NZ (DT)) . We need someone chatty, fun and preferably a scrapbooker or OTP artist. You will need to complete one project per month and be able to find your way around Yahoo Groups. This is open to International applicants.
So now onto our very kind and awesome sponsors..........


New Zealand/Australia Sponsor
