SOUTHERN GIRLS ARE HUNTING...... FOR A FEW NEW DT MEMBERS!

For our Current Challenge click HERE

It has been a fantastic year for us here at Southern Girls Challenge and we are ready for another one! 
We are on the hunt for a few more DT Members to join our happy little group.  If you think you may be interested, check out the following info..........

We are an open blog so any type of paper crafters can apply. 

We are a fortnightly challenge and the team is split into 2 groups so  you are only required to do 1 project per month.

We have lots of fabulous sponsors and sometimes they give us images to work with (YAY)  you are in no way obligated to use these images but it is cool if you do :)

We are pretty chatty, about loads of stuff not just crafting, so be prepared to work those fingers in our group message center.

You will need a blog.

If this sounds like a DT that may appeal to you please contact Lou & Trace at THIS EMAIL ADDRESS LINK!!!!!!  with an email telling us a little about yourself, any current (if any) DTs you are on, fav techniques/ syles that sort of thing and attach your fave 3 projects for us to see and also add a link to your blog please.

We are looking forward to perusing the hundreds of applicants emails and eagerly await all your lovely blog links :)

Call closes 5th October 2011, we know it is pretty quick but we want to be organised before Lou has her baby due in October.

Challenge 28 - Anything Goes!

Hello and Welcome to the newest challenge here at Southern Girls and after the huge event that was our Birthday Blog Hop, we thought we'd make it a nice, easy one for everyone - 'Anything Goes'!! (But do please remember our rule of only 1 entry per person!!)
Talking of our 'Hop', we'd like to say a massive thank you to each and every one of you who hopped along with us and took part. Without you, it wouldn't have been the success that it was! And keep an eye out over the next day or so, as each member of the DT will be posting their prize winner on their own blogs (if they haven't done already). And I'm sure there'll be a master list posted on here once they've all been revealed!

We've got some great sponsors as usual for this challenge

Australia and NZ Sponsor


International Sponsor




And here's some inspiration for you from our fabulous Design Team:





Nik (who's been very busy!)



Sue  (2 from Sue!)
IF YOU LIVE IN AUSTRALIA OR NEW ZEALAND PLEASE ADD EITHER AUS OR NZ NEXT TO YOUR NAME IN THE LINK ENTRY. If you live anywhere else just put your name. The following rules stay the same and we will now be deleting entries that do not follow these simple guidelines as is not fair on the people that do. We are not trying to be mean, just fair.....

ONE ENTRY PER PERSON PLEASE

ENSURE YOU LINK BACK TO SOUTHERN GIRLS IN YOUR BLOG POST

LINK TO YOUR POST NOT YOUR BLOG

Thanks for joining for our challenge,
Trace, Lou and the DT Lovelies!

IF YOU LIVE IN AUSTRALIA OR NEW ZEALAND PLEASE ADD EITHER AUS OR NZ NEXT TO YOUR NAME IN THE LINK ENTRY.

Update for Lots of Layers Bloghop..............

There seems to be some confusion over the rules this challenge for the bloghop.  If you have not commented on the DT Blogs you will not be eligible to win a prize as the prizes from the sponsors are being drawn individually by each DT for someone that has commented on hers and the other DT blogs.  If you have linked to the link tool and not commented on any of the blogs it would be a good idea to whip round the DT blogs and leave some love.

There have been a few issues with leaving comments on a couple of the blogs by some people, if this happens to you please email us using the email us link on the sidebar and you will still be eligible in the prize draws.

Thanks for you co-operation
