Our Challenge this week is

Button it Up!

Our Sponsors are:

Lacy Sunshine
who are providing 4 Digis as a prize. 
Heather starting up a magazine in June, so if you want to preorder- visit her shoppe.


Digi Stamps 4 Joy 
who are providing 5 Digis as a prize.

We are joined for this challenge by Julie from the Digistamps4Joy DT.

My name is Julie Odil, and I am thrilled to be guest designing for the Through the Purple Haze Challenge blog.  What an honor!  It was the perfect reason to get that button stash out!
I’ve always been creative – I play many instruments, like to write, and have been crafty my whole life.  I began scrapbooking about 8 years ago and cardmaking about 4 years ago, but things really took off when I began my blog just over 2 years ago.  It was a life changing experience.  I can’t believe how much fun I’ve had and how many friends I’ve made through my blog. I’d love it if you’d stop by for a visit:
 I used a sentiment image from DigiStamps4Joy on this card, entitled, appropriately, Spring Sentiment    

To find more details about this card, or to see what else I’ve been creating, please visit my blog.

 Our own Guest DT member is the super talented Croms.
Pop over to her blog and have a look at all her gorgeous creations.

Whoops! Sneak Peek!

Sorry anyone who was confused earlier and caught the
accidental sneak peek of Monday's challenge. 
I missed something in the writing of the post so it appeared
today rather than on Monday. 

Normal service is now resumed and the challenge will go live on Monday morning at 10am as usual.

Have a lovely Bank Holiday, hopefully with plenty of crafting time x
