100th Challenge - Take Your Pick :)x

Well firstly, I have to apologise to anyone whose blog I didn't get round to last week. My computer has been misbehaving again and there were quite a few places where it would not let me leave a comment. BUT I have to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part and also to our lovely
sponsor Merrigan xxx

So who has won then?

Here are your random numbers:7

Well, Sandi Shores, it's yoooooooouuuu!! If you e-mail me chick, I'll send your details to Merrigan so you can get your prize.

It's a very special week here at Papertake Weekly as it is our

100th challenge

Back on 1st October 2007, Steph, Andrea, Mandy and Caroline did their very first challenge. You can see it here .

Nikki and Kim came on board very soon after that - within a week or so - and apart from the lovely Caroline who left to start her own fabulous business, Raspberry Ribbons, all the girls are still here. I think that's fantastic and big ups to each and every one of them. They really are the most fantastic group of girls xxx

I was talking to Steph about this and how it all started and it was because a few friends decided that they would take it in turns each week to send out the same materials to each other and see what they could make from them. And that's how it all began. You can read all about it in Steph's own words here.

It is all credit to Steph and the girls that we are sill here nearly 2 years later!! So I would like to say thank you to all the design team, past and present, for making this challenge such a success xxxxx

Because it's a special week, we don't have a sponsor as such, but we do have prizes. All the regular team girls have put together a giveaway, to say thank you to YOU for your support over the years - so next week instead of 1 winner there will be 6!!! Just pop along to each blog, leave us a comment and we will each pick a winner. Easy peasy :)

And we have some other good news - Nikki is back with us after her break.
Welcome back chick xxx

AND there are 2 brand new guest design girls and they are Jill and Katrina. Welcome to you both and I hope you enjoy your stay with us.

So what have we got for you this week? Well this really is up to you because there's a choice of 99 different challenges (yes, 99!!!) That's because you get to pick your favourite PTW challenge and re-do it (but obviously not the same card lol xxx).

Now onto the cards. I've included a pic of all the prizes as well and thank you to the team for putting their prizes together.

Jill - Food For Thought (17/12/2007)

Katrina - 4 Seasons (04/08/2009)

We hope they've inspired you to delve back into Papertake's archives and find your favourite. We can't wait to see which one you pick :)

And don't forget to come and visit us all and see what we've all been up to.

Have a great and crafty week xxxx
