Moving Along into 2012 With Spots & Stripes

Well hello my lovely bloggers how is everyone doing with their new year resolutions? I only made one and that was to be organised with my DT work and my craft room. As I had lovely storage units for Christmas I have no excuse and at the time of writing this post - so far so good!

I'm a little sad though as I have lost yet another follower! I must be doing something very wrong!

I'm here today as my very first DT blog
is back in action after a lovely long Christmas and New Year break
Before I go into the new challenge I'd like to thank everyone who entered the last challenge and everyone who entered any challenge in 2011, without your support and fabulous talent we wouldn't be here.
Head over to the main challenge blog to see if you made Hazels Top 3 or even better won!

This week it's my turn to kick off the year's hosting,
and I'd like to see
whether your holiday was filled with spotty kids or stripey pyjama's
we'd like you to use that for inspiration!

We have a FANTASTIC new sponsor this year

I'd like to welcome Janice and Andy on board and thank them for sponsoring MAWTT in 2012
Sir Stampalot is my favourite shop with the best Internet service around! And since my car found its way there to class in the later part of 2011 along with a couple of my MAWTT team mates, it's found its way back for some very indulgent shopping!

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the challenge along with the fabulous prize on offer to the winner and check out the amazing talent of my super teammies!
Of the gazillion stamps I've bought from Sir Stampalot I had an urge to use a digi!!! Not just any digi though this is the uber gorgeous Gillian from Roberta at Prairie Fairy.  I just love that smug little face and this image has been smiling away at me waiting her turn for so long I just couldn't resist her any longer! She has a just as cute friend 'Lewis' who needs to make an appearance here soon! Coloured with Copics from Sir Stampalot (Janice I will be back to top up my colours very soon!)

I hope you all find time to play along this week, I look forward to visiting your blogs and leaving some lurve!!

That's all from me, I'm actually at my Nephews wedding today (remember I made his wedding invites) and if I haven't posted it already I will be back by the weekend with my blogaversary candy.

Love 'n' Hugs
Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
