Hi All it's the last challenge of the year at

YES you read that right it's the last Challenge! 

 But before I get to the challenge info I want to share some sad news

It was with a heavy heart that Lorraine C has decided to step down from the design team from the end of the year, she's been an awesome teamie and we will miss her!
Lorraine thank you for all your lovely makes and good luck!

We are making a change to the challenge

From this post onwards
I have thought long and hard about this challenge blog and with the support of my Fabulous 
I have decided that this challenge blog is too good to let go!

We will have 1 post a month but still have the alphabets for the challenges..
NO that doesn't mean fewer prizes - in most months there will be more! YAY!
You will NEED to make sure you make a note
of the closing dates and start dates

so you wont miss challenge deadlines...  

Sooooo to kick the fun off and get you into the swing we are running the next 
challenge in this way and this is how the challenges will be from now onwards...

The challenges will start the 1st Wednesday of the month!


And will end on the last day of the month (at 1pm GMT).

This Month's themes are:

Y for Yikes
 Z for Zoooooom!

The theme can in interpreted anyway you like as long as its Christmas...
