Challenge #24 - Flash, Bang, Wallop . . . what a picture

Welcome to the brand new look to our blog and of course our new challenge for the month of July.
We hope that you like it, the new look and the challenge.
We had a great response to our last challenge and we want to thank you for lots of wonderful entries dedicated to Dad's.

As usual we left choosing our winning entry to Mr.
Drum roll please . . . our winner was

Number 10 . . . that was you Lisa 

with this adorable little LOTV bear card

Congratulations, please contact me at to claim your prize.
Due to all the changes around here of late there will be no Top 3 selection but this will be re-instated from this challenge onwards.

To explain our new challenge you will need to know that I saw the musical comedy earlier this year starring Tommy Steele as Arthur Kipps, an orphan who unexpectedly inherits a fortune, climbs the social ladder before losing everything and realising that you can't buy happiness.  
I loved the film and it's catchy signature tune

Flash, Bang, Wallop . . . what a picture!

It is such a happy, clappy song and for the longest time I couldn't stop humming it
So our next challenge is a picture inspiration challenge

 Create any paper-crafting project using the photo above.  Interpret it any way you please but do remember that your project must feature a bear or teddy to qualify for the prize draw.

Our very kind sponsor this month is

My Mum's Craft Shop

My Mum's Craft Shop Blog - offers lots of inspiration and tips.
The very generous prize is a £10 shopping voucher to spend as you wish in the online shop.

Our very talented Design Team has been split into two wonderful creative collectives . . .

Team Teddy - who will inspire you on challenge launch day, the first of the month, every month 
Team Bear - who will keep your creative juices flowing with even more inspirational projects on the 15th of each month

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each one of them for all of their fantastic efforts both here on the challenge blog and behind the scenes.  Thank you ladies, you are the very best.

So now without further ado . . . Team Teddy will show you what they came up with 

Judith, is sitting this one out as she is 
soaking up the rays in American (lucky thing!)

and me, Julie Ann

So now it's over to you.  
Team Teddy hopes that you've been inspired enough to join in the fun with us.  
Remember you have a whole month to take part and you can enter up to four times per month just as long as you enter a different project each time.  
And most importantly of course your entry must feature a bear or a teddy to qualify for entry into our prize draw.

We can't wait to see what you make.
Please click on the blue frog button below to link up your project and good luck.
