Challenge 58 - Lost and Found

Hi everyone and welcome to our new challenge at Basic Grey Challenges.

We had so many wonderful entries for our Mix 'N' Match challenge so don't forget to pop back later to see who was lucky enough to win the voucher to spend at Simon Says Stamps.

As it says in the title, this fortnight's challenge is


- we want to see you use a household item or something you found around the house that you thought might just come in handy for a card or project sometime! We all have a few(!) bits and pieces like that tucked away somewhere, don't we!

The only thing to remember is that you must still use a Basic Grey item somewhere on your make and do let us know what it is as they can sometimes be hidden or not so obvious!

So, onto the gorgeous makes by the Design Team - they have been fabulously creative this week and have been so imaginative in using common or garden household items! We also have our current guest designer with us, the lovely Susie Little.

So, onto the samples to inspire you - enjoy!!
