Formally known as 'Let's Get Shabby' since 2009.
Times have changed and many of us have found our styles have too.

Wednesday, May 25, 2011


Our challenge for you this month
is to:

Create a project based on
a favorite memory or
photo from YOUR childhood.

Our Sponsor is Lea from
seeing as all 100% of sales at 'Little Bits of Pretty'
are donated to the Westmead Children's Hospital,
we thought it would be fitting to have a child based challenge.

The story behind this fundraiser is here

Check out the wonderful PRIZE for our Lucky Winner!

Prize Pack includes:

2 crocheted flowers
8 doilies
2 covered buttons made from embroided doilies
5 assorted buttons

handmade butterfly embellishment
4 journal tags
20+ vintage papers-dictionary, picture book, cookbooks, bible, sewing pattern paper, music paper, bookpaper
