Hi Papercraft Friends,
Welcome to another fun & new Papercraft Business challenge.
There are a few things that I need to cover before I give you all the details of the challenge.
Firstly, I want to apologize for our absence over the last two months. Due to unforeseen circumstances we needed to postpone the challenges.
It came to a situation of where family needed to come first & I stopped everything online, including social media, emails etc, so that I could focus 100% on my family that needed my 100% attention. So, my deepest apologies if this has caused you any inconvenience & thank you so much for your patience.
However, all is pretty good now & I’m able to continue with bringing you some awesome new challenges. I just need a little time to play catch up with everything behind the scenes & get back into the swing of things 🙂
I also want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for participating in our challenges. Without you, there wouldn’t be any point to this blog, nor the challenges. So thank you for encouraging & supporting us so we can bring you new inspiration each month.
Secondly, I want to say thank you to every member in my Design Team.
Ladies, you have been brilliantly supportive & helpful throughout this time. I seriously thank you from the bottom of my heart & appreciate all your kindness, understanding & support. Without you, our PB challenges wouldn’t be possible with all the inspiration you offer to all of us & your dedication to create such awesome projects every single month is highly appreciated. Thanks so much xxx
Thirdly, we have some wonderful new Design Team members that have joined us. Introducing: Jennifer Johnston, Dawn Pauley & Helen Finlay. Welcome to the team & thank you so much for joining us. We all look forward to seeing your awesome designs for the upcoming challenges & I hope you enjoy being part of the team.
Now, let’s move onto our new challenge. I hope you’ll join us & find it fun, but first, let’s see who the winners are for the July challenge.

PAPERCRAFT BUSINESS CHALLENGE #32 – October

Optional: Anything Goes
You can create a project that doesn’t include the challenge theme & you will have the opportunity to be chosen as one of our Top 5. But if you want to be in the running for the prize or our Ultimate Designer position, you will need to follow the challenge theme.
