Jayne Barnett made this cute set of Bookend Drawers. She said that pink is not usually a colour she plays with - but we think she's done a beautiful job. 

Lesley French writes, "My whimsical layout of my whimsical daughter."

Colleen create this pretty decoupage card, commenting, "Although the main embellishment is a shop brought card, I tarted it up with a little pink to make a "just because" card for a friend overseas. It included a wrapped teabag inside to follow the theme and she could sort of have a cuppa on/with me!"

Jenny Taylor has created this beautiful card with a Teresa Collins range. That pink is perfect!

Jessica Toumlin has used the sketch as inspiration for this elegant layout. You can read her blog post here

Jill Hanna made this card  to celebrate her parents-in-law 66th wedding anniversary. What a great occasion!

 Karla Jones writes, "A friend asked me to make an album for her daughter''s 21st. I was told she loved Kim Kardshian and Paris Hilton, so I took my inspiration from that, her daughter loved it."

We love creative ideas and here's what Judy Raynor came up with. She writes, "I had the embossed strips left over from scrapbooking and instead of throwing them in the rubbish I decided to put them on a card."

 Kathy submitted 3 great entries for the challenge. We love the way she's used the patchwork effect with the Teresa Collins papers.

This is Lynn MacDonald's first time entering the challenges. She's create a classy card with Spellbinders dies and punches.
