I have been a slack member of Crafty Boots Design Team, but as this challenge is my challenge I pulled up my socks and finally took part again.
Last month Creative Connections launched a new item on their site, the Monthly Craft Challenge. After all they are a craft community so it made complete sense to have a craft challenge running and I am very lucky to be one of the design team.
The first month was launched in February and was a roaring success. The rules of the challenge are very simple, the challenge is launched on the first of the month in the evening, and you have until midnight on the last day of the month to post your challenge entries. You can combine your challenge entry with another challenge, and you can also make something that you will later sell. You can even post two projects to the challenge, the only hard and fast rule is that the project you make needs to be a new project, and no back linking to previous projects and you have to be a member of Creative Connections to participate.

So once again it is Challenge Time over at the Crafty Boots Challenges blog, this fortnight the challenge is Young at Heart, anything that reminds you of your youth, children or your own childhood.
This was something I struggled with I have to be honest, I firstly thought of doing something of Baba but really wanted to do something different to that. I eventually came up with the idea of remembering when you were young and free and decided to do this tag.
This is the third Challenge for Crafty Boots and the exciting thing is that this challenge is happening right now, so after you have a read of this you can actually pop on over and participate in the challenge yourself.
The theme this time was Zoo or Animals, I decided to do a Scrapbook Page of a recent trip to the Zoo that we did as a family.
I am a member of the Crafty Boots design team, and for our first challenge the theme was Anything Goes now you would think this would be easy and it was when I started, but I have to be honest, I was a little stuck at first. As I just couldn’t decide where to start!
In the end I settled for a very old style scrapbook page of my Grandparents wedding day. I am really into Family History and have been researching my tree for a while, so it seemed right to start a few pages of the older pictures I have of family members.
