Good morning and welcome back to another challenge at Crafty Boots!! This is a special one as on Wednesday this challenge blog will be one year old!!

To celebrate our birthday we have chosen the theme of ONE.  Think the number one, one colour, one element, one layer... the possibilities are ENDLESS!!

The challenge will run until 12 noon on Sunday 16th September and you are free to enter as many times as you like and combine it with as many other challenges as you like as long as it is a new project (no backlinking).  Your blog post must mention that you are entering this challenge and please when you link up link to the address of the specific post rather than just your general blog address otherwise it can be difficult for the design team to find your entry when they visit your blog. 

As always if you don't have a blog please email photos to and we will enter it for you!

Now on to the inspiration from our fabulous design team!

Cross Stitch by Dionne

Check back as there a few of us (ahem... myself included!) who will be popping back with ours later!

Hope you can join us for our special birthday challenge!  The random winner selected by to win this challenge will win a stamp set and two kaisercolor paints of their choice from Crafty Boots!
