Happy Birthday!!

On 5th May 2006 the dares began on a little private forum, after a few weeks of people asking to join in - we moved to a public blog. Members of the team have come and gone, the team has expanded to over twice the number of original members, there have been many ideas and themes - and we are still going strong. There are a whole years worth of images and challenges in our archives - lots of inspiration and ideas. Take a look at our very first challenge from 5th may 2006.

As well as our birthday, it's also National Scrapbooking Day tomorrow, and we are marking these 2 occasions with an exciting give away! The very talented Cheryl Johnson is about to launch a fabulous 10 week online photography course - sign ups for this have just closed, but we have one place on the course up for grabs for you here! Added to that we also have a 1 month subscription to The Design Collective. To enter the give away please leave a comment on this post including your name and somewhere you can be contacted if you should be the lucky winner (a blog link or email address please) Last entry for the prize will be Sunday 6th may at 6pm BST - the draw will be made on Sunday evening, the winner will be contacted as soon as possible and the result posted here.

Good luck!!

Mel said...

Have loved the Dares sine they started, admittedly I rarely get chance to scrap let alone regularly do the dares, BUT when the inspiration has run dry and I am searching for a lost mojo these dares are the first place I look for inspiration :) Happy Birthday girls, what ever the name says you will always be speshal!

I go to choir on a Friday night and the first thing i do when I get home is check in to see what the latest challenge is. Your layouts are always beautiful, fun and challenging and often have an honesty combined with a sense of humour that I love. Thanks for a year of inspiration!
