Craft Challenge- Annual Birthday HOP come join the fun

Yes it is that time of year again that we at Craft Challenge Celebrate our birthday so grab a drink and checkout all the details .

Happy Birthday To Us
Happy Birthday To Us
Happy Birthday Dear CRAFT Challenge
Happy Birthday To Us!

Can you believe it? CRAFT Challenge is already 9 years old. Originally started by Tracy from Just Tracy Crafts and with a DT mostly recruited from Trimcraft forum members (Hence the term CRAFT Challenge, which stood for Crafters Residing Are Friendly Trimmies. Or if you wished alternative meaning of Can't Remember A Flipping Thing) on the 4th of May 2009.

We have now grown to be a large team of Design Team Members from all around the world, supplemented with several Guest Designers who join us for a month or a week at a time.

We have always welcomed all kinds of craft, not just paper craft (unless specifically stated so in the challenge at the time) and are happy to have such a large group of faithful followers.

So, how are we going to celebrate this milestone?

Well, how else can we celebrate than to have our yearly Blogaversary Blog Hop?

We all feature sponsors for this blog hop on our blogs and I have the honour of featuring and offering a prize from the following sponsor. You can win this prize by adding your name to Inlinkz at the end of this post. I would love to see your comments as well.

The sponsor on my blog is Scrap N Dipity.

And you can win 3 digital stamps from  Scrap N Dipity by adding your name to the Inlinkz at the end of this post.

How can you get to win any of the prizes provided by our sponsors?

That is easy! Just follow the route on our blog hop, Our Blog Hop lasts for the duration of this challenge, which means a closing time of Wednesday 6pm GMT on the 16th of May 2018.

And here are our little rules for this challenge/blog hop:

The rules this year are very simple:
