Sunday 30 December 2012


Hi everyone, 
Hope you had a fantastic Christmas and got spoiled with beautiful pressies (some crafty ones too?)

This is just a quick post to let you know of our new challenge for 2013

starting on Sunday 6th January

The idea behind this originally, was to do an altered dictionary challenge, so we are hoping to see a lot of dictionaries. 
BUT, as we would like many of you playing with us, we have made it an ALPHA challenge so you can play in all sorts of ways (altering an AJ, ATCs, tags, dominoes?... as long as there is an obvious letter or word starting with that letter  as well as its definition.)

We will tell you more next Sunday when we start...
and just saying... we are not starting with the letter A.
We will go through the whole alphabet throughout the year, but not in alphabetical order...
And sometimes, I might add a little "twist" to it, to make sure you are not working ahead of time ;)
The challenge will be posted every 2 weeks

Some of our DT members are playing and have already started. 
So far, they are all approaching this challenge in a different way, and it's going to be faaabtastic!
Here's a few previews.... 
Can you guess who's hiding behind each picture?

See you soon,
