Scrap 365 blog hop & Pan Pastel challenge...AWASH WITH COLOUR....

Hi everyone - we're here and it's Saturday!...

Hello and welcome to the Scrap365 and Pan Pastels 

Back to Basics Blog Hop...

Awash With Colour!

We have changed our challenge day for this week (so there'll be no post tomorrow) and have been playing along with the designers from Scrap365 magazine and sharing our love of Pan Pastels to show you all that colour is nothing to be scared of :) especially when it comes to scrapbooking but for all your projects, whether it's home decor, grungey distressed looks or even cardmaking - when it comes to colour just go for it!
Premium Craft Brands have donated a fantastic set of Donna Downey Pan Pastels for the lucky winner of our Blog Hop prize draw :)
To take part in the blog hop you need to follow the trail of our blogs to see all the amazing creations from everyone - we have some wonderful layouts and projects for you which will blow you away! Make sure you visit each blog and leave a comment so we know you've visited and you will go in the draw for that wonderful set of Donna Downey Pan Pastels which is worth £41.95!!! 
The random winner will be chosen from all the comments by Ali from Scrap365 and will be announced 20th March at 5pm on the Scrap365 blog and here.

The Scrap 365 team challenged the Pan Pastel team to go Awash with colour by asking us all to choose a specific colour palette which we then had to follow....the results are amazing! 

So, now you need to click on the link here and go to the Scrap365 blog and Ali's post HERE 

and then follow the list (it doesn't matter which order you visit us) - we would love you to please leave a little comment on each of the team blogs and then go back to the Scrap365 blog to let us know you've hopped - we will also give an extra little prize away to someone who leaves a comment on this page but we will check you've done that hop so don't be naughty now! ; ) 

Just to give you a little tease here is some lushness to whet your appetite, look at the colours on this! 

And here is what Nikky has for you....

If you're not into doing the blog hop and are disappointed we don't have a Pan Pastel challenge for you this week, never fear! ....
We also challenge you to go
Awash with Colour
Do the same as we did on the hop - go pick a colour palette with at least 6 colours in it and show us what you can do - it's an open Pan Pastel challenge so no rules except the inspiration has to come from the palette you choose and you need to show us a pic for your inspiration next to your make on your blog. You can get some awesome inspiration from here

You have until next Saturday 22nd March to enter this one as it's a little extra challenge we didn't have scheduled! Add your links below (this challenge has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BLOG HOP!)
Thanks for joining us this week and we hope you love the Blog Hop - we'll be back again next Sunday ready for a brand new challenge!
