What's the Weather? Challenge

Spring is in the Air and so is a new challenge..... funny how these 2 go together! ;)

Here at Jellypark Friday Friends Challenges we want to celebrate all kinds of weather! but first we are going to announce the winners of the fun Craft challenge:

1 . Tine
2 . ineke da cruz
3 . NanaConnie

Thank you so much to everyone who played along! Would our Top 3 winners please grab the badge on the right side bar for your blog? and Tine, please send Claire an email at jellypark at with your choice of a digital image from the Jellypark store.

As I mentioned in the previous post, this is the end of our winter DT term. This team has worked so hard to bring your wonderful projects to inspire your creativity. if you get a moment, please pop by their blogs to tell them how much you appreciate all they have done. :)

Springtime brings with it all kinds of wild and wacky weather. So our challenge is for you to create a papercraft project that reflects the weather somehow. It could be through your image, diecuts, designer paper, embellies, whatever floats your little boat! But we want to see something about the weather when we look at your project.

Remember the few rules that we have - make sure it's new and family friendly, limit yourself to 2 entries please, and link your individual blog post to here while mentioning Jellypark Friday Friends. the complete list of rules is over on the side bar. you are welcome to use any images or stamps you would like, but a Jellypark image will get you an extra entry into the chance for Top 3. One winner will receive their choice of a digital image from the Jellypark store! :)

psssssst....... here's a little secret for you...... Claire has a few freebies here in the store that would be PERFECT for this challenge! and don't forget the Little Haven fundraising images, too!
